All grade levels have been working very hard on learning music for the upcoming all-school concert. The concert will be in the Van Allen Gym. The theme this year is “A Tribute to Our Country”. You will hear traditional patriotic songs such as “America”, “Battle Hymn of the Republic”, “America, the Beautiful” and more. Other songs that are part of our county’s heritage will also be heard; songs such as “Yankee Doodle”, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home”, “This Land is Your Land” plus many more. Please encourage your child to continue working on the words to the concert. I sent a sheet home with them several weeks ago to help in this process.
I am very excited to inform you that the Junior Kindergarten class will be singing in this year’s concert. This will be a new experience for myself as well as the younger students at Van Allen. We will have a reserved area for Junior Kindergarten parents to sit in so the transition from “performer” to “audience” will go much smoother and quicker so the other students can get on with their part of the concert. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation in this change of routine.
