Greetings, Prep 1 Families,
Thank you for another lovely rehearsal this week! The children are settling into chorus routines and expectations, and I know we will be making some great musical discoveries and accomplishments this semester! The theme of our first few rehearsals continues to be All About Me, singing songs and playing games which help the children express who they are, and to become friends with each other! This week, your child went home with a laminated Rhythm Sheet for Apples, Peaches, Pears and Plums, and a song sheet for one of their recital pieces, Sleigh Song. All of the songs and activities mentioned below can be reinforced at home!

Even at this age, we take the musical progress of every child very seriously, and in order for this to happen, we need an optimal classroom environment. Thank you for your support!
Have a lovely weekend, and see you next Thursday!
