We would like to warmly welcome any new friends to Memorial School. We hope you all had a wonderful summer!
We will use this site to communicate with you what your child has been learning in music class each week and important concert dates.
We were so excited to meet our new first graders this week! They learned a “Welcome Back” song and the rules of our music class to ensure that every child has a safe and fun environment to learn.
Our second graders did an excellent job in remembering our “Memorial School” song. Ask your child to sing it for you! We also learned a song and game called "Ickle Ockle."
Our third graders learned a fun way of remembering the names of their classmates as they sang “Hey Children Who’s In Town.” We also learned a rhythm stick routine to go along with the game!
We would like to welcome our new fourth graders to chorus! We have a great crew! Fourth and fifth grade students learned some important breathing techniques to help them sing better.
The links below (also located on our sidebar) will bring you each grade's website. This is where we post lyrics to the songs we sing in class. Hopefully this will encourage your children to sing at home, and share what they learned with your family!
Chorus Lyrics & Recordings (fourth and fifth grade)
We also believe that literacy and reading are important in the music room, so in addition to our word wall, we love reading music books to the students. The link below has a list of the books we have read so far. It gets updated each time we read a new one.
Books We Have Read in Class
Other fun links can be found in our sidebar, so we encourage you and your children to explore them!
We also have a new teacher joining us for the first few months of school while Mrs. Niu is on maternity leave- Ms. Rohlfing!
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call or email us.

Thank you for your help in making this a wonderful and musical year!
