5th Grade Musical

Dear 5th Grade Families,

Pirates! The Musical is approaching!  Students have been working extremely hard and I am very excited about our upcoming performances.  The performance schedule is as follows:

Monday, March 2nd at 7:00 PM: Schroeder

Tuesday, March 3rd at 7:00 PM: Schecter

Wednesday, March 4th at 7:00 PM: Menoher

Thursday, March 5th at 7:00 PM: Bondi

Students are invited to come and perform with any of the other classes if they would like.  I have ordered props and and some costume accessories for students to use.  Please have students dress nicely for the performances (no jeans or t-shirts).  If you would like to go above and beyond and work on a pirate costume, that would be great but it is certainly not required.

Here is a copy of the script for at-home practice:

Welcome to Mr. Cunningham’s Music Class!

Oh hey, didn’t see you there!  I am honored and privileged to be the new music teacher at Stafford Primary School.  I have a lot of fun and educational music activities planned for this year, and I can’t wait to share them with you all.  Senior Choir and Percussion Ensemble will be starting soon and our first concert will be on Thursday, December 5th at 7:00.  Junior Choir will begin in February and all three groups will perform together at a concert sometime in the Spring.  The students of Stafford have been outstanding this first month, and I can’t wait to see them grow and develop as musicians and individuals as the year progresses.  I am incredibly grateful for the warm welcome I have received at Stafford, and I know that this is truly going to be a special school year...
