Music with Mrs. Weeder

Tuesday: Band & Instrumental Lessons  
Thursday: Chorus & Music Class 

Chorus is open to all JGS students. Kindergartners are invited to join after winter break. Students are offered one "try it" class and then are asked to make a commitment to come every Monday. We meet for 30 min during the school day and perform at the 2 school concerts and many school assemblies.

Instrumental lessons are optional for students in grades 4-6 and are offered during the school day. There are two performing ensembles for instrumentalists: 5/6 Band and 4th Grade Band. 

Louis Fuchs Permission Slip - For Fifth & Sixth Graders

Dear Parents:

       This year’s Louis Fuchs/Otto Ninow Memorial Concert will take place on Tuesday, March 27, 2018.  The Snow Date is April 3. The concert is at 6:30 p.m. in the Kennett Middle School Gymnasium.  Students from all the schools in SAU #9 & #13 are participating.

       In order to participate, your son/daughter must be dismissed from school on the day of the concert from approximately 9:30 am - 1:30 p.m.  Your son/daughter will be transported by bus (except for Conway Elementary School & Kennett) to the Kennett Middle School campus for rehearsals.  Students will return to their schools in time to take their regular busses home.

       Students will rehearse in the Kennett music rooms and the gymnasium in the morning.  At approximately noon, all students will be in the Kennett gymnasium for a final dress rehearsal.

       Students should dress comfortably and bring a bag lunch, including a beverage, to rehearsal.  Students should dress nicely (no jeans or sneakers if possible) for the evening performance.   Dresses, dress shirts/slacks, shoes, and ties are appropriate.

       Students must attend the rehearsal in order to participate in the evening performance.  Because students are being excused from school for the rehearsal, it is very important that everyone who attends the rehearsal also attends the performance in the evening.

       Transportation to the evening concert is not provided.  Students should report to Kennett Middle School at 6:00 p.m.  Donations will be accepted at the door to support future Louis Fuchs/Otto Ninow concerts.  

Checklist for the day:

1. Bag lunch, including a drink.

2. Dress comfortably for rehearsal, bring music, instrument, etc.

3. Arranged transportation to and from Kennett for the evening concert (again, a bus is provided to and from rehearsal).


Please detach and keep the above portion for your information.

I give my son/daughter __________________________________________ (first & last name, please)

permission to be dismissed from school and be transported by bus to and from the Louis Fuchs/Otto Ninow Memorial Concert rehearsal.
