February 21, 2017: 3rd Grade Music & Chinese Assembly- Media Release Permission Form Due this Friday!
Dear Parents and Guardians of 1st Grade students,
Hello! I am excited to share that Waverly Belmont Elementary will be inviting clawhammer banjo player Abby Washburn and Chinese zither (guzheng) player Wu Fei back for an interactive cross-cultural music presentation during your child’s Related Arts time on Monday February 27th.
Both Ms. Washburn and Ms. Wu are currently working on a project with CCTV America (China Central Television) in filming a feature on their cross-cultural sisterhood and the way they connect the US and China through music. One of the projects closest to their heart is sharing stories, music and messages with kids. They are hoping to include footage from their school visit here at Waverly Belmont Elementary and request each student to submit the “Media Release for Minor Children” permission form to ensure they have your permission to film your child (please see form for more details). Please sign and turn in the attached form by Friday February 24th to your child’s homeroom teacher. We will make appropriate accommodations for those who choose not to participate or those without forms.
If there are any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Walle at email@example.com . Thank you for your help and support in your child’s music education here at WBE!

August 29, 2016: Concert in the Park!
It is with great excitement to announce that our Waverly Belmont Elementary 3rd and 4th grade students have been chosen to join the upcoming 12 South Concert in the Park on Saturday September 10th at Sevier Park!
The students will be the opening performance for the bands and will perform 2 songs they are learning in music class. We will meet at the Sevier Park Community Center Entrance at 4:30pm, perform at 5pm, and students can leave by 5:15pm after checking out with me. This event is free to all and a great opportunity for families and friends to enjoy local music and food under the stars. This will be a great opportunity for students to represent WB Elementary in our community as well as highlight their many musical talents.
As full participation is ideal, this is a weekend event and I understand that some may not be able to join. Please note that this is not mandatory nor will it affect your child’s music grade. To ensure all students are accounted for, please fill out the form below and return it to the class teacher or Mrs. Walle by Tuesday August 30, 2016. Permission forms will be necessary to participate. If there are any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support in your child’s music education!
