Dear FP Families and Students-

Thank you for a great 2016-17 school year. I hope you have a great summer and those of you playing instruments, don’t forget to practice this summer. Hold your mouse over the |BAND| or |ORCHESTRA| links above; look for your instrument and go there for some scale sheets and videos for your instrument.

Choir Changes Next Year-

We are making some changes to choir next year. We will still meet after school for one hour on Tuesday and Thursday, but we are making some name and grade changes for each choir:

Choir on Tuesday after school will be called Choir 2.3 and will be for students in grades 2 and 3.

Choir on Thursday after school will be called Choir 4.5 and will be for students in grades 4 and 5.

You will need to register online for choir again in the fall. Look for details in the Falcon Flyer September 2017.

Instrumental Music-

Students in grades 4 and 5 have an opportunity to study a band and orchestra instrument with Mr. Pendergrass. This is a “pull-out” program during the school day and is in addition to their regular classroom general music class. You can find out all of the details about this program by clicking on the |INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC OVERVIEW| link above. All 4th graders will be getting more information and an opportunity to sample some instruments in the music classroom come September 2017.
