Einstein Primary Choir Begins!!

From Ms. Lindgren:
I am so excited to announce that our Primary Choir will be starting on Tuesday, February 28th . Singing has been absent from our school life for more than two years and I could not be happier for its return. 
 
All students in kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade are welcome to join. 

Choir is a wonderful opportunity for students to get an extra-dose of music and to make new friends.   

Primary Choir meets EVERY Tuesday morning from 8:15 to 9:00 am in the music room, students are dismissed to their class line-up or breakfast directly from choir.  We practice every week until the first week of June.  We finish our season with a joint concert with our Intermediate Choir in early June.

Email Ms. Lindgren: elindgren@lwsd.org with any questions.
