Welcome to music at OKE!
Whether classroom activities, grade level performances, or choir, every child has the opportunity to make musical memories that will last a lifetime!
Classroom: In each music class, students will learn fundamental musical concepts through the use of playing singing games, classroom instruments, learning folk dances, and other hands-on experiences.
Grade Level Musicals: All 4th grade and 2nd grade students will participate in a grade level musical. 4th grade will perform in November, and 2nd grade will perform in March. Try-outs are not necessary unless the student wishes to be considered for a speaking or solo singing part. 4th grade musical performance dates and times are: November 21st 9:30am, 2pm, and 6pm. 2nd grade musical performance dates and times are: March 19th 9:30am, 2pm, and 6pm. More information will be sent home with the students.
Choir: Each fifth grade student is invited to participate in the extra-curricular Outback Singers Choir which meets every Wednesday and Friday morning from 7:20 am to 8:10 am. The Outback Singers is a non-auditioned choir and is open to all 5th grade students who have a desire to sing, have passing grades, and have OKE expected conduct. This choir has many performance opportunities throughout the year, some on the OKE campus and some away. The performances away include being invited to sing at a Rice University football game or a Tompkins High School football game, taking a singing field trip throughout the community in December, and performing at Moody Gardens in the spring. This year's choir performances at OKE are the following: December 12th 9:30am, 2pm, and 6pm and April 16th 9:30am, 2pm, and 6pm. All other performance dates and times, forms, dress requirements, and additional information will be posted on our "CHARMS" website, https://www.charmsoffice.com.
