Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!
 This year is going to be filled with growth and surprises--our campus now houses three classes per grade level, and that means lots of new faces.  We're going to work hard to put on two fun concerts this year!

Concert Dates: 
Fall Harvest Concert: Thursday, November 16th, 2017 @ 4:00pm
Spring Concert: Thursday, March 8th, 2018 @ 4:00pm
Both concerts will be at the Hollis Gentry III Auditorium, located at the front of the O'Farrell Charter School campus, near the corner of 61st and Skyline.

Basic Note Identification Exercise:

Online Sequencing Tool (fun!):
Soprano Recorders.
In Grades 3-5, we use Soprano Recorders as part of class.  This year we're excited to try out Lyons brand Soprano Recorders, which come in several fun colors:
  • Translucent Red
  • Translucent Orange
  • Translucent Yellow
  • Translucent Light Green
  • Translucent Blue
  • Translucent Purple
  • Translucent Pink
  • Translucent White/Clear
  • Opaque Ivory/White
  • Opaque Dark Brown
After School Music Club:
Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 3:00pm to 3:45pm in 406 (Mr. Rauh's room)
A small Xylophone Ensemble focused on developing musicianship; performs extra songs at concerts and provides music for Fifth Grade Promotion ceremonies.  Open to 3rd-5th graders (and their younger siblings)!  Currently FULL with 45 students!  
Fifth Grade Class Pieces:
Each Fifth Grade class (Ms. Glenn, Mrs. Mayer, Ms. Shaw) contributed ideas toward a Class Piece.  Check out the computer-generated preview on the Videos Page, and be sure to attend the Fall Harvest Concert to hear the real deal!
