Subject:HORIZON BAND TEACHERS PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH MUSIC OPPORTUNITY
To:
Horizon band teachers’ collaboration day is almost here.  During our collaboration meetings in the fall, we decided that our goal is to raise awareness of band in our school division.  With this goal in mind, we organized a band day for Feb. 4 to bring together students from across the school division to play in a band workshop, ending in a public concert. Altogether there will be almost two hundred students participating in this event! Students will receive a souvenir t-shirt and wear it during our day together to build team spirit and a sense of community. As well, keeping in mind our school division’s literacy goals, research shows that music literacy reinforces many aspects of language literacy.  We have many reasons to be excited to come together and share our music!
