Dear Parents and Guardians, February 2018
★ Good News, The Arts Department has been approved for the ART SPACE
GRANT. More details below.
NYSSMA any students interested in participating in NYSSMA this year please see
me for a sign up sheet.
3rd graders have all received a recorder and have begun learning the basics of playing the instrument.
Students are encouraged to buy one at any music store or online to practice at home, this will help their
learning on the instrument.
4th and 5th graders have started to learn music for their performance at Carnegie Hall performance on
May 21st. A separate letter will go out about this event soon. Graduation song practice will begin soon. Follow this link to practice the songs at home.
Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders have engaged in conversation and counting in multiple different
languages. Students are going to start talking about their Spring Concert and continue learning songs on
the keyboards.
LOOKING AHEAD: We will start holding auditions for the Talent Show.
The Music Department will be receiving music stands, choral risers, wireless microphones/stands and
new connections to be able to hook up a laptop to the speakers and projector in the auditorium. All these
additions will help make our department stronger and have even more successful performances.
Mr. Ramsingh
