Brain research shows that the only way to make new and keep old neural connections (the roadways for information to travel in your brain) is to TRY HARD THINGS. This year we're focusing on TRYING as class. Trying new or difficult things will only make us better and stronger in the future... so keep TRYING, even if you don't get it right now!
Here Comes a New Year!
As we gear up for a new year, I am updating and refreshing this website. Keep checking in throughout the year to see our many adventures and keep up to date on the latest from Tiger Music!
Heads up! There is a new way for Mrs. B to keep track of JH in-class participation. In order to keep participation grades as fair and equal as possible, Mrs. Brownlee is keeping a daily tally of 'strikes' for each student. Few students are earning strikes, but Mrs. B did some reflecting and decided that keeping a daily sheet would really help make a picture for parents who have questions about participation.
You'll find updated versions of the schedule and handbook right here at phtigersmusic.weebly.com !!!

THREE EVENTS LEFT:
My hobbies include playing with my children, singing in the church choir and reading. When I have free time I like to visit family, play board games and sew. When I have "extra time" I also play guitar, craft and paint.
