Welcome to 5th Grade Music!

Greetings, new and returning families.  I am looking forward to getting reacquainted with returning fIFTH grade students and meeting a few new ones beginning the week of August 22-26. Third grade music classes will meet weekly at the following times:

  • Mondays from 9:05-9:50 with Ms. Homer's Class
  • Mondays from 10:05-10:50 with Ms. Esquibel's Class
  • Wednesdays 10:05-10:50 with Mr. Slattery's Class

Our first day of Music Class we will take pictures for new seating charts to help Ms. J with names. We also learned a new "Name Game" song to use for each student.  Each 5th Grade class will be partnered with a younger grade class, and we are working on videotaping "The Star Spangled Banner" and "The Bulldog Boogie" to help our Classroom Buddies learn these important school songs.

Fourth grade students are invited to audition for our after school choir, Vista Voices, which meets on Wednesdays from 2:45-4:30.  More information is posted here.  Also, we are looking for some helpful and willing parents to assist during our Wednesday after school rehearsals.  This is an important but fun job--and you are welcome to participate in our music activities, if you like.

You are always welcome to leave me a question or comment at my email:  cynthiajorstad@vistausd.org or on my school phone:  (760) 726-2170 Ext. 44316.
