ILMEA District 9 Elementary “Fish Bowl” Festival
This year we are restructuring the District 9 Elementary Festival and trying something new. We are planning to have different clinicians come in and teach specialized lessons (like drumming, movement, part-singing, ukulele, etc.) to groups of ~20 students and their teachers, and then have students and their teachers rotate between rooms so that everyone can experience everything. This way students will get to have many different experiences in one festival, and teachers will be able to see how lessons are taught to students. There will not be a performance component to this festival since our focus will be on process.
Date: Saturday, October 13th, 2018
Location: Westmore Elementary School
The festival will be open to Fifth Graders and their teachers and participants will be asked to wear school spiritwear or school colors.
Teachers will be able to nominate up to five fifth graders from their respective schools. Registration will be online through the RNS system. Teachers will need to register their schools through the system, and the cost for each student to participate is $8.
More information on clinicians and specifics for registration will be shared closer to August, but we wanted to get this information out to you now to start planning ahead for October 13th! Please fill out this Google Form if you would like information emailed directly to you as we have updates to share.
We look forward to working with you, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns!
