Check Out Our New Bulletin Board!


I am admittedly terrible about putting up bulletin boards-it takes a long time to put them together, make everything look nice and neat, and have a good message to share with students. I have finally put up a new one, and I am so grateful to the other teachers who share their great ideas on Teachers Pay Teachers for the assist. This one celebrates a variety of black performers in celebration of Black History Month, but it will stay up for Music In Our Schools Month as well. My students are pretty excited to find Beyonce up there, but it’s nice to hear them reading about other important artists, too.Shout out to David Row of Make Moments Matter for this great resource. You can get this bulletin board for yourself here!



New Year, New Mindset!

Welcome back to another great school year! This year, I hope to encourage my students that growth comes with hard work and effort, which is why I love this awesome bulletin board about growth mindset for musicians. You can find it here on Teachers Pay Teachers.



We also have a Fisher student participating in the Greater Richmond Children’s Choir this year, and they are always on the lookout for other students to participate. Check out the flyer below for more information.



Music In Our Schools Month

Happy Music In Our Schools Month Everyone! We are celebrating all month long with music trivia questions daily on the announcements and all sorts of music-related things adorning the hallways. My favorite thing you will see in the halls here at Fisher is this display of out staff members musical identities. After you make a prediction about which teacher goes with each clue, you can lift the flap to find the answer!

We kicked off the celebration a little early this year…

Last week, the Richmond Symphony Strings came and performed for the school. They taught us about the different elements of music and accompanied the students in a “Let It Go” singalong!
