• Welcome Blue Buffalo

    General Music K-8

    B.F. Grady Elementary School


    Welcome to General Music!  We will be learning so much by singing, playing instruments, and connecting music to reading, math, and other subjects!


    Now, a little about our classroom....


    Students will need to bring the following materials with them:

    • a pencil with an eraser,
    • scissors,
    • a glue stick, 
    • and crayons, coloring pencils, and/or markers (whatever they have for their regular classroom).  
    • a pencil with an eraser, 
    • at least one pack of the following:  crayons, coloring pencils, markers, or Sharpies (student/parent choice).

    It is fine for them to use the same materials that they have for their regular class.  


    Our class rules are:

    1.  Show respect to yourself and others at all times.
    2.  Do not eat, drink, or chew gum in class.  
    3.  Use good words. *We use music terminology and kind, respectful words.
    4.  Follow directions when given.
    5.  Leave the junk outside. *Junk is anything that holds us back from being our best.  My older students know all about the drama that is not allowed to come through my door.  :)

    Students will usually complete work in class.  Middle School classwork will also be available in Canvas.  Elementary classes will also use Google Classroom. 

    Student grades are based on class participation and classroom assignments.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  The school phone number is 252-568-3487.  My email is trsmith@duplinschools.net.
