Welcome Back Horbelt Singing Dolphins!
Dear All First Grade Parents,
My name is Ms. Sawall and I am your child's music teacher. On this page, you will find classroom information & musical materials your child is learning. Your child has music once a week which means that over the course of a school year, I see them only 30 times.
Please visit this page often during the school year, as a way to stay informed & involved with what your child is learning in music. Music has proven over the test of time to help boost moral, attitude and academics. Let's have a great musical year!
Ask Me's are questions parents can ask their child each week to help them stay informed as to what their child is learning in music.
