~I will do my best to update homework on the website
at the end of each day~
Awesome job at the Christmas Concert! We will be doing a lot of awesome in-class activities: A reflection on our performance at the concert, then Christmas-themed music worksheets, activities, and games while listening to my favorite high-quality Christmas carols and songs. 3rd and 4th grade will continue with Christmas recorder music, and 5th-8th grade will do an in-class listening journal. But there will be NO HOMEWORK!

A Celebration of Singers and Bell Choir Pizza & Snacks Party!
Who: All members of Singers/Bell Choir groups
When: Friday, December 16th from 2:30pm-3:30pm
Where: room tbd, but pickup in the back parking lot either from the church or the doors by the 1st grade/gym
Why: To build camaraderie and celebrate our hard work
Bring: OPTIONAL bring a snack to share! I will provide pizza, water, and paper goods. You don’t need to bring enough for everyone, because if even a few people bring snacks we’ll have lots (25 kids between the two groups)
Early pick up: If any parents need to pick up early, just let me know. I understand that these are busy times! The snow that is coming is scheduled to just be starting, so I have my fingers crossed that we won’t have to postpone.
Allergies: I am planning to keep things simple with the pizzas, probably a split between cheese and cheese with a meat, but if your student has food allergies or sensitivities please let me know.
RSVP: Please let me know if your student will attend by emailing me, an accurate headcount will help. Find my email below.

Please email email@example.com, and I will get back to you at my first opportunity.
The St. Lucy Singers
meet on Wednesdays at lunch. They may take a hiatus until my maternity leave is over, but we shall see!
HANDBELLS ARE BACK!
The Handbell Choir has returned! We meet Tuesdays at lunch. This will definitely run while I am gone.
Hello! My name is Mrs. Hawkins and I am the new-to-you music teacher at St. Lucy’s. I’m so excited to be here. My husband, my son, and our dog moved to Wisconsin recently although I am originally from the Midwest. I grew up in DeKalb, IL and then studied music performance and education at Northwestern University (near Chicago). I’ve been teaching music in schools since 2005, and I love it. I sing, and play violin, piano, guitar, and recorder. I especially love cantoring at Mass, and singing musical theatre, R&B/gospel, and jazz/blues.
I can hardly wait to meet everyone in the St. Lucy’s community–so far you have all been terrific and very welcoming. Thanks for making this quick transition so much easier with your kindness. I look forward to our year together, and if I haven’t met you yet, I look forward to doing so very soon.
Sincerely, Mrs. Hawkins
