2015-2016 School Year

Posted in 5th Grade General Music, 6th Grade General Music, General Information at 9:21 pm by

Welcome back for the 2015-2016 school year.

We wanted to take a moment to explain a little about the WIS music classes this year.  Your student will have two music teachers this year.  Mrs. Whitehead will teach drumming and electronic music.  Mrs. Rowe will teach guitar and electronic music.  Your student will have each teacher for approximately 1 trimester and then will rotate more often at the end of the school year with some of our digital music projects.

For example:

Student A has Mrs. Whitehead (Drumming) for trimester 1.

Student A has Mrs. Rowe (guitar) for trimester 2.

Student A has Mrs. Whitehead and Mrs. Rowe for trimester 3.


If you need to contact us, please email BOTH teachers.  PowerSchool shows just one of our names for the entire school year.  We prefer you email us BOTH so we know the correct teacher sees the email.


As a reminder, your student needs a pair of earbuds for music class this year.  If you haven’t turned those in, please do so soon.  If you still need to purchase a pair of earbuds, we will be selling them at Meet the Teacher Night (come visit us to order a pair).


Also, we want to invite your student to join the WIS choir.  Please visit one of our blog websites for the Choir information. (see address below)
