Dear Poplar Tree Families,
Thank you to everyone who helped and attended our Block Party last Friday! Everyone had a fabulous time! Also, thank you to all who supported and purchased items from the silent auction. It was a HUGE success!
This week we had a wonderful choral concert at Rocky Run. All of our choral students and the directors did an amazing job and put on a great concert! We look forward to our band and strings concerts next week!
Have a fun Memorial Day weekend!

Lists of books that are checked out to students will be sent starting Friday, June 2. If there is an error within the list, please contact Mrs. Riddile.

Ms. Johnson and Mr. Salzberg invite all rising 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students to join or continue band or strings for the 2023-2024 school year! Rising 4th grade students may choose to play a stringed instrument while rising 5th and 6th grade students have the option of either band or strings.
Both band and strings meet once a week for instrument specific classes to learn instrument fundamentals, music note and rhythm reading, and prepare selections for concerts. 6th grade students have the opportunity to perform in at least 2 evening concerts per year while 4th and 5th grade students have at least one opportunity to perform in an evening concert. Both groups of students have can perform a solo in the spring solo and ensemble festival.
All 5th and 6th grade band students also get to participate as a performing member in the Fire and Ice Pep Band in May/June each year to perform fun pep tunes! There may be a field trip next school year for band students to visit a professional band concert or a local high school marching band competition.
Current 5th grade band students do not need to register unless they would like to switch instruments. If you are in 5th grade and would like to join band next year-beginning 6th graders ARE welcome! Ms. Johnson will meet with all rising beginning band students at the beginning of June to try ALL of the band instruments and help you find the best fit.
As we look ahead to the 2023-24 school year, we are asking for your input. We value our partnership between home and school and appreciate your thoughts on your child's learning needs.
