Dear Parents and Students,

It has been a delightful few weeks, reconnecting with your wonderful students!  They are an animated and interested group, contributing questions and ideas enthusiastically!

We have begun our opera unit, with a brief summary of the evolution of opera and the terms that are often found in opera.  We are on to Mozart's Marriage of Figaro beginning this week.  We have also completed a unit on the music of South Africa, having written 'call and response' lyrics and moving on to a little bit of drumming in this coming week.

I will be in the Commons for Back-To-School Night and I hope to see many of you there!
