Tomorrow will be my last day before my maternity leave. Baby is due Saturday, 12/20! I will be out until either right before or after April vacation. Ms. Victoria McComb will be my long-term substitute. Ms. McComb just finished her degree in Music Education at Rhode Island College and completed her student teaching this fall with Mrs. Fuller, the Oak St. and Parmenter Elementary Teacher. In addition, she just spent the last couple of months leading the North Attleboro High School chorus! I know the students will love her and look forward to hearing all about it when I return!

December Musician of the Month
In grades K-3, we explored the form of many different songs from the Nutcracker. In K, this might be as simple as training our ears to hear sections of the music that are same and different. A fun way to show the form or sections that are same and different is through movement and dance. Enjoy some highlights from this past month!
