Any Turkey Can Tango

The bird is the word!  Turkey, that is.  We have been singing songs and doing activities in the PK-K world about Thanksgiving and turkeys!  Ask your PreK students about "Super Turkey."  Or, have your Kindergartener show their "serious face," which is required in a Tango, of course!  Here is a short video of some Kindergarteners dancing to the Tango.  

I'm so very thankful to be able to teach music to your children at this wonderful school!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Mrs K :)

Lyrics Now Posted

Lyrics for all the songs in the Elementary Christmas Program are NOW POSTED under the tab "Special Programs and Events."  This is only for students in grades 1-5.  Have your child entertain the family at Thanksgiving this year AND practice their songs at the same time! :) 

It's Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas!

If you were to step into a music class at FPD, you’d find students hard at work learning the songs, recorder parts, xylophone parts, dance movements, and speaking parts to our annual Christmas program.  I am encouraged by their enthusiasm and proud of their efforts!

The 2013 FPD Elementary Christmas program is Christmas Eve at the Cabin. The story is about a group of children who are gathered at a snowy mountain cabin for a family reunion.  We join them in their festivities on Christmas Eve, right before going to sleep.  Songs will include some Christmas favorites like "Jingle Bells" and  "Away in a Manger, " as well as some newer, soon-to-become favorites. 

The FPD Elementary Christmas Program will be at 1pm and 7pm on Thursday, December 12th in the Clarke Fine Arts Center Auditorium.  The program involves all children in grades 1st-5th.  Please invite your family, neighbors, and friends!  It will be sure to be a bright spot in your Christmas Season!
