Music Program Information 2019-2020 School Year

Woodlawn Early Years School has a proud legacy regarding our music program.  We are pleased to once again have Katie Smith Schroeder as our full time music teacher for grades 2-4.  Aimee Kroeker is also working as a music teacher for grade 1. She also uses music in her Kindergarten Music and Movement program. Please see the information below detailing our music programs for the current year.

Grade 4 Choir/Farewell Song (Virtual Format)

Hi Grade 4 Students and Families!  As you may know, the Grade 4 Choir usually sings at the Grade 4 Farewell assembly at the end of June.  I would still like to create this special memory for you!

Please learn the Farewell song that I’ve sent you (“Sing”) by practicing along with my recording.  Once you feel ready.  Have a family member record you singing along with my recording.  Please don’t use earbuds… it will be easier for me if I can hear the piano music as well.  Send me your video in (.MOV) format if possible.  I will try my best with other formats, but I’m still learning:)

Also, you don’t need to have been in Choir throughout the year to do this!  Any Grade 4 kids are welcome to learn the song and join this special choir.  Please send me your videos as soon as possible and NO LATER than Wednesday, June 17th.

This will be posted on the Woodlawn Youtube Channel, so media permission with the office is necessary!  Please email me at ksmithschroeder@hsd.ca if you have any questions!
