Welcome To Music!

Dear Parents/Guardian,

This will be my fourth year at Herington Elementary School as the Music teacher.  I hope to bring the joy of music to each one of your children.  I try to balance good singing, playing instruments, a bit of music theory, and life lessons into each class.  I see every class everyday!!!  That is extremely exciting.  It is easier for the students to recall the information processed the day before if it is in fact from the day before and not from 3 days prior.  However, there is so much to do and not very much time to do it in. 

I have posted the list of classroom expectations and consequences for your benefit of knowing the expectations I have of each and every student.  It is important for each student to follow the rules in order to receive full participation points for the day.  Most importantly the students must participate.  They do not have to excel in each activity, simply try.  Each student is allotted 4 participation points per day:

            4: Exemplary

            3: Satisfactory

            2: Needs improvement

            1: Unsatisfactory

            If you have any questions over the expectations, consequences, and how your child receives their grade, please feel free to contact me either by email or by phone.  

           I look forward to a great year with a great group of kiddos!!!!! Again feel free to contact me at anytime.
