Thank you to all of our Armatage students for the extra hard work and effort they’ve put in these past few weeks.  Congratulations to EVERYONE who tried out for a solo, speaking solo, or triangle part for our upcoming music program. It takes an incredible amount of courage to stand in front of classmates and audition. I am SO proud of each and every one of you!

Congratulations to the 1st and 2nd graders from Ashley Tomechko’s class (room 106) and Denise Clare’s class (room 110) for their hard work and participation in our Student of the Month performance (April 26).  They sang “Big Beautiful Planet” in honor of Earth Day.

Kudos to the kindergarten students from Heather Lingen’s class (room 102) and Jane Campbell’s class (room 107) for their terrific Kindergarten Round-Up performance (May 2nd).  They sang ”You Are My Sunshine”.  Thank you for showing next year’s kindergarteners (and their families) what it’s like to perform on stage at Armatage!

We are currently looking for 4th graders that play an instrument (and will still have the instrument on the last day of school) to be a part of the Prelude in our 5th grade completion ceremony on June 7th. We will have the piano available, but any other instrument would need to be provided by the student. If your child is interested – but has not yet signed up in the music room - please ask them to come to the music room immediately and do so. We have been working on this in music class, but I welcome your support in checking with your 4th grader to see if they would like to join us in this special opportunity.

I hope to see you at our All-School Spring Music Programs on Thursday May 9th.

Have a wonderful week!
