QUINCY WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS
Each year we ask Quincy families to complete a survey to help us identify areas of strength and to plan for areas for growth. It is helpful to have as many parents as possible complete the survey. It takes just a few minutes and you can follow this link to access it. Thank you so much! We love our Quincy families!!

Below is a quick update from the music room! Quincy will host the High School Wind Ensemble on February 20th. We look forward to hearing the band play for us!
First graders are beginning to explore “Carnival of the Animals” by Camille Saint Saens. This fun collection of music will help us begin to learn about the instruments of the orchestra.
Second graders are singing some Broadway favorites, as well as learning about Sergei Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf.”
Third Graders are so excited to share their folk dance night with their special guests. Third graders and their guests are invited to join us on Thursday, February 27th, at 6:30pm in the Quincy gym. Third graders are also learning about sixteenth notes and eighth/sixteenth note combinations.
Fourth Graders are working hard to prepare for our Link Up concert with the Holland Symphony on March 23. All of the music for the concert can be found online. Google “Carnegie Hall Link Up The Orchestra Sings.” Using this site makes practice at home much more enjoyable.
Fifth Graders travel to Grand Rapids to hear the GR Symphony on February 28th. We are currently learning about the music the orchestra will be sharing with us. We are grateful to Michigan Youth Arts for the transportation grant they’ve provided for our trip.
ZPS Third through Eighth Graders are invited to join the West Michigan Children’s Choir. Rehearsals for second semester are just getting underway. The choir meets on Monday evenings from 6:30pm-7:30pm at 14th Street CRC in downtown Holland. There is a $100 fee per semester. Contact director, Kristin Baron, for more information: email@example.com
