I am excited to present to you my first guest post! It comes to you from our very talented music teacher, Mr. Ramsey, who is currently getting the kids in the holiday spirit in preparation for our Winter Concert and the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony!
Hello from Mr. Ramsey:
Your children will be performing in two events this December. First, they should all come to the Revere Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at City Hall on Wednesday, December 7 at 4:45 PM. We will be joining 5th graders from all over the city to lead a sing-along at this festive occasion!
They will also be performing at the Winter Concert at the McKinley School. Come to the school on Tuesday, December 20 at 1:30 PM to hear the fifth graders perform classic Christmas and holiday tunes, the classic Sixteen Tons, and a very challenging piece by the composer Dvorak on their recorders.
~Please help your students prepare by allowing them to view my videos on youtube and encouraging them to practice their songs at home.
We hope to see you at our performances,
Check out a Video Tutorial for the recorder piece on Mr. Ramsey’s You Tube channel. Practice makes perfect!

So folks, let’s practice, practice, practice and sing our little hearts out 🙂
What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song?? I love the Chipmunk Song and Carol of the Bells!
