Jeanette Hayes Elementary

Things are humming this time of year in the music department.  The third grade students, teachers, and parents are busily preparing for their upcoming performance of, "Get in the Game."  Don't miss this exciting "alternative sports" musical on November 11th at 7:00 p.m.  Way to go, third grade!!!

The 5th grade 'Soaring Singers' will be singing for the opening of the Katy Mills Mall on November 5th at 12:30 p.m.  They have an awesome sound!  Why not take a day off to "Shop 'til you drop" and drop by to hear us sing!  We will also be traveling to Memorial City Mall and Chase Bank in December.  Don't miss this group! 

Did you know that your student practices TAAS skills in music class?  When a student marches to the steady beat, he has mastered a TAAS skill for math.  Even our 1st graders accomplish this skill.  Put on a CD at home and ask your student to show you the steady beat.  When a student discovers the pattern (AB, ABA, etc.) to a piece of music, he has mastered a TAAS skill for math.  And in music class, learning and mastering TAAS skills is FUN !!!!
