Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to start by introducing myself. My name is Mrs. Callas and this is my 19th year of teaching and my 12th year as chorus director here at Greensburg Salem Middle School. I studied music education with emphasis on vocal performance at Seton Hill College in Greensburg and completed my Master's degree in Music Education from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. I had a wonderful, rich, student teaching experience in the Greensburg Salem elementary schools thirteen years ago and I am thrilled to be part of this wonderful district. I am delighted in this opportunity to enrich the choral program at Greensburg Salem Middle School. I am very excited about working with your children and making great music again this year.
I wanted to take the opportunity to inform you of my updated web site. Pertinent information about chorus, musical, ensembles, festivals, and music lab, as well as forms, rehearsal schedules, and MP3 files for students to practice their music at home, can be easily accessible 24 hours a day. I would greatly appreciate as much parental involvement as possible. You as their parents, play the most important support model for them. Without your support our music program could not flourish. Please feel free to contact me by phone (724) 832-2930 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering or if you have any questions or concerns.
Please review the web site, syllabus, and letter with your child informing you of the choral expectations. Also please include your contact information and any feedback (via email) so we can stay in touch. Please mark your calendars with the concert date listed below (and on web site) because we would love to see you there. Thank you for your support and I look forward to meeting you and working with your child.
