I mentioned to everyone at the beginning of the semester that we will have one additional parent open class during the semester. We decided to do this for several reasons the most important is to take pressure off of teachers to put all of our efforts into the end of the semester demo class. This will also give parents a better “feel” for the progress of the students during the semester that we hope will influence them at the end of the semester.
This demo will begin the weekend of May 25. Please prepare a lesson plan for that weekend that will demonstrate students’ abilities in the best way you can. As far as the demo lesson plan, review of material studied from the beginning of the semester till now that students know well and can really demonstrate well is all that is needed. The demo class is one hour long.
Our annual Spring Party will be on Saturday, June 1 and we also would like students to be able to sing three songs:
1. BDW Theme Song
2. First Thing in the Morning
3. Ram Sam Sam
These three songs can also be included in your demo class for parents May 25 if they have already studied these songs. It will be explained to parents that these songs will be used during the Spring Party on June 1.
I don’t think it is too late to include practice of these songs starting tomorrow. We will discuss further during Monday’s meeting.
