• Welcome to Mrs. Sarah Martin's

    STE Music Class!

    **Distance Learning Update**
    Due to COVID-19, all teachers are being asked to provide content, resources, and lessons for students. I have choice boards for each grade level, a page of song lyrics and tracks for students to sing with, and a page of links students can explore and sing/play/move/explore/create to during this time on the left side of this page. If you have any questions at all, please email me at ssmartin@henry.k12.va.us or send me a message on your child's Class Dojo. I will have office hours from 9-10am and 7-8pm Monday-Friday. I hope you will all stay safe and healthy during this trying time - I miss each and every one of my students! 
     
    Dear Stanleytown Families,
    I know these are difficult and uncertain times we are facing right now. Due to these
    circumstances, I would love to lift all of our spirits. This time of year is usually when we are wrapping up the school year with lots of fun events. This year, we are going to do something that has never been done before. We are going to have a Virtual Talent Show! You have two choices for this talent show – you can go live during our Google Meet (K-2nd will be Tuesday, May 19th at 6pm and 3rd-5th will be the 19th at 7:30pm) or you can submit a video for everyone to watch to Mrs. Martin’s email – ssmartin@henry.k12.va.us during the Google Meet! Hopefully, I can record the sessions and send out final videos afterwards…this will depend on how many submissions I get. I would prefer video submissions due to technology limitations.
    I don’t want to put many restrictions on these videos, so as long as the video is school appropriate it will be aired. I only ask that your videos do not exceed 3 minutes. Also, I do reserve the right to hold back any videos that my panel doesn’t deem school appropriate and stop any live performance that isn’t school appropriate as the whole point of this Virtual Talent Show is to uplift and spread happiness, smiles and cheer, as well as becoming good, kind, and respectful audience members. If you have poetry, are a singer, dancer, magician, comedian, artist, even tricks with your pets are allowed! I encourage you to include the whole family! You can have just the students perform or the whole family perform, the sky is the limit!
    If you want to participate, but are stuck on the technology end of it, please let me know and I would be happy to either walk you through it, or to find the answer!
    My hope with this project is that we connect, get to see each other even if only through videos, laugh, and smile a whole lot. Please let me know if you have any questions. I so look forward to seeing all of your amazing videos and talent!
    Love always,
    Mrs. Martin
