Welcome Back Musical Dolphins!


Dear All Fourth 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. In addition, your child has the opportunity to be a part of two clubs called Bell Choir and Chorus. (Please see those pages for more information.)

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!
