I am the general music teacher and choir director here at Eagle Elementary School of the Arts. This is my 10th year at EESA, and I love working with the students, parents and staff of this community! I truly have the best job, and care about the work we do for students.
This site will inform you of upcoming music performance dates and details. I will post information about each grade-level music program, Honor Choir, Band and Orchestra performances. Please visit my calendar page regularly to view upcoming dates. Additionlly, you can find a list of all general music programs, choir, band and orchestra performance dates under "Forms and Information".
As the year begins, you can visit "Forms and Information" to find enrollment forms for Choir, Band and Orchestra. General enrollment for these elective classes run the first week of school. This year all 4th and 5th grade students are required to sign up for an elective class. The options for 4th grade are: Orchestra, Choir, and Reader's Theater. 4th grade elective block is on Mondays and Thursdays from 12:45-1:15pm. The options for 5th grade are: Orchestra, Band, Choir, and Reader's Theater. 5th grade elective block is on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11:15-11:45.
3rd Grade has an elective option as well. Students may participate in Choir for the first half of the year. They simply need to complete the 3rd Grade Choir Enrollment form to participate. Their elective class time is on Wednesdays from 3:15-3:45pm
In addition to all these wonderful elective options, I also teach all general music. Each grade-level will present a general music program or performance. These dates are found on my "Dates to Know" flyer under Forms and Information on my webpage. You can also find them in our school's Peach Jar list.
