Snail Mail Addresses Needed

We are learning about letter writing and students have chosen to write to a wide variety of recipients, from family members to famous authors and sports figures.  Please check in with your child to see who they are writing to and if they need to bring in an address.  Carmen and I can get addresses for public figures but we are stumped by grandma and grandpa!


Orchestra Concert at the Hult Center

On Tuesday, March 19, we will go to the Hult Center for a special youth concert, The Orchestra Rocks.  In the weeks to come, students will be learning how to play two of the concert’s songs on the recorder.  At the concert, they will play along from the audience. 

If you want to chaperone please let me know.  Trust me, hearing 1,000 kids playing the recorder in unison is a powerful and unforgettable experience!  Chaperones should plan on coming at 9:00 and being done at 12:20.  We will be riding the LTD bus to and from the concert.


Another Concert at the Hult Center

We are partnering with the Eugene Concert Choir for their annual outreach concert.  A guest instructor will visit to teach us the song “Consider Yourself” from the musical Oliver!  Students will receive a free pass for themselves and an accompanying adult to attend the American Style for Kids concert on Saturday, April 27, at 11:00 am in Silva Concert Hall.  Students can enjoy the concert and then join the 110-voice Eugene Concert Choir on stage if they’d like.  It’s always a fun experience for those kids who choose to participate.
