A special THANK YOU goes out to all the moms, dads, grammies, grampies, aunts, all the important people in our lives who are supporters of the King Street Elementary Music Program!!  It has been a joy putting a program together for all of you. Thank you for having such great kids to teach!!  I loving watching our students faces as they come on stage with the gym FULL of special people there to see justthem.  Butterfly moments that are replaced with a job to do ...perform! Grandparents Day, Remembrance Day, Christmas concert, Music Festival and Blacklight shows are a few of the BIG moments that our students will not forget! Thank you for being in the audience with your encouraging applause!  Our students have been asked to perform at various times through out the city. Thank you for taking your child here and there and letting them bring the joy of music to others. Many memories have been made with many more to come!

 A special thanks goes out to my grade 5 parents! It has been a delight to teach your child over the years. The students and I know how much practice it took to make those elementary memories!!  You will look back at these moments and SMILE!

I tell my students often that I have the best job in the school. 

Guess what????

I DO!!!

Have a great summer!
