Sixth Grade Orchestra Program

Objective: To teach each member of the class the beginning essential techniques necessary to play their respective stringed instruments well. Daily practice will assist each student to succeed. For beginning string players, 20-30 minutes 5-6 days per week is recommended.

Instrument: Violins, violas, cellos and String Basses can be rented through Summerhays Music (Orem) (801) 226-1760, Bert Murdock Music (Orem) (801) 225-7922, Mountain Rock Music (Springville) (801)489-3000, Bill Harris Music (Provo) (801) 374-1440, Charles Liu (Midvale) (801) 255-9636  or Boothe Brothers Music (Spanish Fork) (801)798-7650. Currently the district is very low on inventory so unless you’ve already talked to me about rentals, you will need to look elsewhere.

Keep your eye on KSL.com Online Classifieds or Craigslist as well. There are dozens of instruments being sold all the time, sometimes for the same price or less than a school rental. I am always on the lookout for good deals and can help you find them.

Parent/Student Meeting: A parent/student meeting will take place at 8:30 am on Friday, September 15, 2017. At least one parent should attend.

Other Purchases and Fees: Every student needs a copy of Method Book: Measures of Success, Book 1 for their chosen instrument. There is a one time tuition fee of $75 for the year.

Eagle EYE on Mrs. Hansen

Mrs. Kristi Hansen is our new afternoon skill builder.  Mrs. Hansen says her favorite part of the job is getting to be with kids.  She says "they are great and so much fun."  Mrs. Hansen has 4 boys and no girls.   Her family lives on a farm and they have cows, lambs, chickens and cats.  In her spare time she likes to run, scrapbook, make crafts and read.  Her favorite restaurant is anything with Mexican food because she loves chips and salsa.  The strangest talent that she has is that her thumbs are double jointed and she can twist them around backwards.  Riding in a helicopter, visting New York and going to Hawaii are things she would eventually like to do.  We are thrilled to have Mrs. Hansen with us at Rees.  She is kind to everyone and very professional and we feel so lucky to have her.

Mrs. Heidi Groneman is joining us this year in 2nd grade.  She has taught school for 5 years, and has taught both 6th and 2nd grade.  Her husband is also a teacher.  They have 4 children, 3 boys and 1 girl.   Her favorite trip was to Disneyland, and someday she would like to travel to New Zealand or Hawaii.  Her favorite restaurant is Carrabas and she loves peanut butter M&M's.  Someday she would like to get a Masters degree and finish her basement.  If she won the lottery she would pay off her house, help her family, and travel.  We are so excited to have Mrs. Groneman join us this year.  She is very friendly and has been a great addition to Rees Elementary.

Friday the 5th grade had the opportunity to help the people of Houston.  Evan Call is one of my students(Mr. Groneman) and his dad reached out to me on very short notice (Thurs), and was going down to Houston to take supplies to shelters and children and asked for help.  Our 5th grade answered the call and brought a ton of items to help.  Here are a few pictures of Evan and his family helping in Houston.  His dad said they had over 15 suitcases of items to donate.  Way to go Evan and Mapleton 5th Grade!!
