K-8 General Music Class

**The Holiday Concert is on Tuesday, Dec. 17th at 9:15 am, and 6:30 pm.**

For the morning performance, please sit in the chairs provided, students will be watching from the bleachers. For the night concert, please plan on arriving by 6:15, so students are able to check-in to their classroom and prepare for the concert. Students will stay in their classroom during the night performance. Band students need to have their instruments for both performances. Instruments may be left after school, if they are returning for the night performance. Students do not have to wear uniforms this day. Any school appropriate clothes are acceptable. Holiday and dress clothes may be worn. Most classes will be moving around, so students should wear comfortable shoes and clothes.


These are the concepts that students are working on in the month of December.

The Union Band is open to anyone in 4th-8th grade. No auditions or previous experience is needed. The band will rehearse every Tuesday and Thursday that school is in session. Practice is from 2:30-3:15. Students will need a ride home from practice. Please contact me if your student is interested in joining the band.


All students are encouraged to participate in the Accelerated Reader program. Students can read books from the library, take a test at school about the book, and receive prizes for reading.

Please consider donating to the library if there are any new or slightly used books at home, that your student is no longer reading.
