WELCOME TO THE WALKERSVILLE ELEMENTARY MUSIC DEPARTMENT!
Recorders are required for all students in third, fourth, and fifth grade and are available for purchase from the school. The recorders are $4.00 and are higher quality instruments which will facilitate proper breath and technique in our young players.
The recorders were ordered at the beginning of August and have not yet arrived. However, you can reserve a recorder for your student by sending $4.00 (cash preferred) to school in an envelope with your child's name and homeroom teacher. Your child will be marked paid and recieve his or her recorder as soon as they arrive.
It's time to sign up for the Chorus! All fourth and fifth grade students will receive permission slips the week of September 4th.
If you wish to join the choir, simply return your permission slip. No audition is necessary and all are encouraged to join. Each year we present a Winter and Spring program. A change for this year is chorus rehearsals will be before school on Mondays from 8:00-8:40. If transportation is difficult, please consider carpooling with a friend.
This year's winter program will be presented at Walkersville Elementary School on Thursday, December 6th. Please mark your calendars.
Grading Guidelines for Elementary Music: Report card grades in music are based on multiple evidences. Grades communicate a student’s: (1) mastery of curriculum standards and indicators, (2) progress toward meeting standards and indicators, and (3) are an indication of participation and effort. Music is an active, performing art. Participation is expected.
