Welcome to the
2019-2020 School Year!
My name is Laurie Bevan. I am the Music Specialist here at Butte Elementary. This is my first year teaching here, although I am not a stranger to the Butte community. I live here and all four of my children attended Butte. I love this school and the students here.
I have been teaching since 1994. I have taught music in international schools, parochial schools, private schools and now in the public sector. I have taught a variety of ages from preschool to grade 10 and have performed in various music groups all over the world. I am passionate about teaching kids that there are so many varieties of cultures in the world and the music they perform stems from their culture.
At Butte Elementary School, we offer general music classes to all grades K-5. We also offer before school choir to grades 3-5 on Wednesday mornings and Band to Grade 5 on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school day. I follow the Game Plan curriculum for the general music classes that has been approved by our district. I also supplement the curriculum with many extra songs and musical units.
This year we will also have 2 multi-grade level musicals. The first will be on December 14th, 2018. It will feature our 3-5th grade students and will be a multi-cultural musical entitled, Paint the Town December. It will feature Kwanzaa, Hannukah, and Christmas songs. Between the grade level musical and our band/choir concert, we will have an optional dinner hosted by the PTA. This allows our performers who will be in both productions to be able to eat before the second performance.
Our second multi-grade musical will be on April 26th, 2019 and will feature our K-2 students. The show is called, E-I-E-I Oops! and is a comedy about Old MacDonald's farm. You will want to come and support our littlest performers! Our PTA will again host the Dinner and a Show and all proceeds will go to future programs for our kids.
I hope you will be able to attend!
