We’re having a pet show….oh, I mean a Spring Concert!

Dear Parents,

Our Howe Montessori Spring Concert is Thursday, May 18, 1:30-2:45 pm, in the Gymnasium. We would love to have you join us in the audience. I would like to share with you some very specific information to help your child prepare for the concert.

Some students have a speaking part. If your child has a speaking part you would have already received an email from me with a link to the script. You will notice your child’s name is in the script each time they have to speak. Please take some time to help your child memorize their words. The speakers also need to practice speaking slowly, with a strong and clear voice.

All song tracks and speaking parts are also available for home practice. To get to the material your child can:

  1. Log into Clever
  2. Click on QuaverEd
  3. For first-time use click on the button on the right (green)
  4. Click on “A+”
  5. Click on “Pet Show, K, 1, 2” or “Script and Songs Spring Musical 3rd, 4th, & 5th, Grade”. Students in grades 3, 4, & 5 also have “Music is Amazing Extra Help”.
  6. Click on “Launch’ on the right-hand side.

On the day of the concert students in grades Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade may bring one plushy stuffed animal that is no larger than 10 inches tall (smaller is better). The animal must be one that represents a real domesticated pet; cat, dog, bird, snake, lizard, bunny, hamster, guinea pig, fish, or horse. No lions, tigers, monkeys, bears, etc. permitted. Only domesticated pets are allowed. And not all students need to bring a pet, because some children are not allowed to have pets (as one of our songs will say), and that is perfectly fine. It should be small enough to hold and also place on the riser step at their feet during their performance.

Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade are performing a Music is Amazing-themed concert. Students may dress with a Disco Fever Theme if desired. We will also have a few fun surprises for you during their performance. They will finish their performance with a Recorder Playoff. Let’s see who the last one standing will be.

The 5th-grade band and violin students and the After School Music Club will also play a few things during the concert.

We hope you will be able to join us for this special event. If you have questions please email me:

Music Is Amazing!
