Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend our first performance.  The children are singing with such enthusiasm. Music Club is the highlight of my week.  The t-shirts turned out amazing.  There are a few extra in many sizes and they are just $10 cash or check.  Let me know if you want an extra one.

From Oct. 4, 2016 - It was so exciting to hear 33 students sing so beautifully yesterday at the meeting of the first performing arts group at Ocean View Elementary.  The students were enthusiastically engaged throughout the entire 90 minutes.  Thank you so much for enrolling your child in this wonderful program. 
   All students arrived from their after school programs (YMCA, Chinese School & Maples) and then returned safely.  Then all the parents arrived on time to pick up the children.  Thank you so much.
   I was so thrilled with our first meeting.  In two weeks the children will receive their music t-shirts which they will wear during some of the performances.  I will be sure to email you, so you can be on the look out for them.  I have a few extra if anyone wants a second one they are $10.
   Tuesday, October 11 at 4:30 pm - Please join me to hear the students sing:  Start Your Day With A Song.  I will be inviting all parents onto the stage to hear the students perform.  I usually do not do this at only the 2nd meeting, but they sound so amazing and have such enthusiasm in their voices.  It was incredible.
