Dear Parents and Guardians, May 2019
● Talent Show Auditions are underway and taking place during your child’s regularly
scheduled music class. Acceptance letters will go out by Monday, May 13th. Rehearsals
will start Wednesday, May 15th (correction from previous letter).
● The select students that performed at M.S. 158 and represented our school at a District
26 evening of music were AMAZING on stage and off! Thank you to all who supported
this event. Here is a video of their performance:

● NYSSMA: The schedule should be posted soon and the second I get a copy I will send it
home to all participants.
● Library Shows are on May 9th and May 13th. Mrs. Wielopolski has sent out letters to
all performers and artists. If you are not a part of the event you should come and support
and enjoy the art, poetry and music of P.S.133Q students. Details are on the Art
Newsletter and on the school website.
3rd graders have been reintroduced to the keyboards that they started learning at the end of last
year. This keyboard unit will take us through the end of the year.
4th and 5th graders should have returned their permission forms to their teachers for the
upcoming performance at Carnegie Hall performance on May 21st. The Carnegie Hall
performance is not open to the public due to the amount of participating schools and students.
Furthermore, it is unfortunate that Carnegie Hall has prohibited any type of recording. They will
have a professional crew filming a performance so hopefully we will be seen on that.
All three graduation songs have been posted for 5th Grade , please practice at home. Follow this link to practice the songs at
Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders are practicing their spring concert music. Please ask your
children to sing the song for you at home in order to have them memorize it and practice. The
spring concert will be held during the day on May 31st during the school day. Students will be
asked to wear a white top and black bottom. A letter will be sent home soon.
