Hi Central Manor musicians. I hope that you are finding ways to stay musical at home. Please check out the remote learning activities on our Penn Manor website. The elementary music tab has activities for each grade level and also lists my email :firstname.lastname@example.org and “office hours” of 11:30-12:30 where I will be available to answer questions.
Stay safe! Be sure to sing or listen to music while we are not in school!

Our Central Manor Holiday concert is coming up soon. It will be held on December 4 at 7pm at Central Manor. Band, Strings, Chorus and Grade 3 will be performing. Your performer should have brought a reminder letter home.
Here are the times and places for students on December 4:

Third grade–6:45 in their classrooms, except Mrs. Collins class should report to Mrs. Wise’s room. Please note that supervision for 3rd grade will not begin until 6:45, so students should remain with parents until that time.
Thanks and we are looking forward to a great concert.
Our Central Manor chorus will begin rehearsing on Thursday, September 26 at 8:15 in the music room. Parents should drop students off at the front door no earlier than 8:05. Students will be able to enter the area between the double doors at that time. I will come to let students in at about 8:05. After 8:05, students should ring the bell at the office and Mrs. Smith will let them in.
After rehearsal in the music room, breakfast students will be dismissed at 8:45, others will be dismissed at 8:50 to their classrooms.
I am looking forward to another year of making great music together.
Thanks to all student musicians and parents for a great year of rehearsals and concerts at Central Manor. We were able to participate in the combined choral concert, Central Manor concert and combined band and orchestra concerts in April and the results were delightful!
We are now finished with our performances and before school rehearsals. Lesson groups will continue until the end of the school year.
Thanks for a great year of making music together!
