Valentine’s Fun 2014

Alward music students not only focus on elements of music but also on making friends as well as being polite and kind.  This week, grades K-5 will celebrate each other through the use of several Valentine’s Day songs, partner dances and steady beat tag and chase games.  We are looking forward to our Valentine music lessons.


One of our many Valentine’s Day tag/chase songs is “I WROTE A LETTER”.  Lyrics:  I wrote a letter to my love and on the way I dropped it.  A little doggy picked it up and put it in his pocket.  Oh he won’t bite me and he won’t bite you.  He’ll bite the one who’s got it.  So drop it, so drop it.  It must be dropped by now.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

4th Grade Flute Recorder Order Form

It is that time of year when all fourth grade students are asked to learn elements of music through the use of the flute recorder.  You may choose to purchase a brand new ($4.00) recorder or you may opt to have your child play a previously used and sanitized recorder.  Below you will find a form that we would like all 4th grade parents to fill out and define the option you choose for your child’s recorder.
