Nitschmann’s Music Olympics

Dear Nitschmann Music Students,

We, Mrs. de Vries and Mr. Zettlemoyer, have put together an event that is sure to be fun. We have created the Music Olympics where you can showcase your musical expertise in creative and imaginative ways.  

Participants must select two or more activities from the grid below. We have included a copy of the grid in this email so you can easily see all the events. Click here to access a google doc with the participant information. Using Flipgrid, participants will record or upload their entries. You must use this Flipgrid link to record or upload your entries.  *YOU MUST BE LOGGED INTO YOUR BASD ACCOUNT TO SUBMIT.

All entries are due by Wednesday, May 27 at 4 PM.  

We will review the entries and announce the winners on Friday, May 29 at a virtual awards ceremony.

You can also cheer on your fellow classmates by clicking here and liking their entries.

We are excited to see your imaginations at work.  Remember, think outside the box, be innovative, and, most importantly, have fun.

PRACTICE INFORMATION

  • Each week your child receives an email via Schoology with the assignments for the week. I will mirror that email to parents through our NIMAS parent email account.  

We are all experiencing a substantial disruption in our lives.  The assignments are created to provide your child with a basic level of instruction to keep them engaged and to help them maintain their performance level. Encourage your child  to practice and complete the worksheets.  If they are getting upset because they have hit a performance roadblock, send me an email and I will do what I can to help them.  I am working on additional resources to assist your child.
