Dear 4th Grade Parents,
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you, and convey our excitement at the opportunity to work with you and your students this year. Music enables us to explore and embrace our differences as we work together to create a caring community where all children feel like they belong. Choir is the perfect place for students to practice cooperation and leadership as they develop their musical, physical and mental skills.
Any 4th grader who enjoys singing and performing is eligible for membership. A choir permission slip is attached. This form should be filled out and returned to your child’s music teacher before the first day of choir.
