5th Grade Strings Info

5th Grade Strings at Sells MS​

Beginning in the 5th grade, students can learn how to play the violin, viola, cello, or bass. They will come to Sells twice a week for a music lesson BEFORE the start of their school day. At the end of class, a bus will transport the students to school. This is a wonderful opportunity for 5th graders to experience middle school, as well as get an early start to their middle school music experience.

 Upcoming Performance!!!!!!!

Dear Parents,

On Thursday, May 19, 2016, the Thomas students will be participating in our annual school-wide program celebrating music, singing, and spring.  Our program takes shape from both American and English folk traditions.  In England, May Day was celebrated with festivals, flowers, dancing, music, and of course, the weaving of the May Pole.  In America, the play party is one of the most important contributions to our folk music heritage. 

To celebrate our heritage, we will be having a “May Day Celebration.”  During this celebration, each grade will present two singing games or dances from America and other countries around the world to other students and parents and the program will culminate with the fifth graders weaving the May Pole. 

The following classes will perform at 10:15 a.m. in the gym:  all morning kindergarten classes, Kucinic, Schmitt, Bender, Bowman, Breading, Reck, Crimmel, Deschler, Almassy, Allen, Boblenz, Mast, and Tucker.

The following classes will perform at 2:00 p.m. in the gym:  all afternoon kindergarten classes, Bonar, Russell, Turnow, McCreary, Power, Cutteridge, Weingard, Barrington, Campanale, Andrews, and Howard.

* Mrs. Saradakis’ students will attend with the class that they go to related arts with – please ask your child.

Parents are invited to attend our May Day Celebration and the Volunteer Appreciation Reception from 11:40 - 1:00. 

            Mrs. Arcaro
