Choir is open to 4th, and 5th grade students.
Director of Choir:
Mr. Ian Meyer
Choir information meeting will be held on September 12th, 2023 in the music room from 2:45-3:15. Please stop by to get an information packet and to sign the permission slips for choir. If you cannot attend, please have your student attend so they can receive the information.
Choir is available for 4th - 5th graders who are interested in becoming even more proficient in music and developing their singing voice while learning collaboration with their peers! Your child will take a bigger part in music education, which helps contribute not only to a positive self-image, but it can also aid in academic success across the subjects.
This year, we will be performing twice per semester. In the Fall, we will perform with CMS at their Veterans Day Celebration on November 9th, 2023, as well as at Mountainside with our December Singalong. In the Spring, we will perform at the Night of the Arts at Mountainside, and in the CSCC’s In Harmony Festival in May. Permission slips for any performances that require transportation will be given in advance of the performance. YOUR STUDENT CANNOT ATTEND WITHOUT PERMISSION, so please make sure you have this turned in on time!
If your student has any interest in joining choir please reach out to Mr. Meyer.
Rehearsals take place every Tuesday from 2:45-3:45pm until May.

Team Sports Club
Team Sports Club will be held every Monday starting on September 25th and will be available for grades 3-5. This club is dedicated to introducing a variety of different sports and activities with the goal of developing new skills, learning different sports/games, and working together as a team. Additionally, this club will help students develop their physical abilities which will help with living a healthy and active lifestyle.
What to bring: Club members are expected to wear appropriate shoes and clothing that is designed for physical activities (running shoes, athletic clothing, etc.) Additionally, students need to bring their own water bottles.
Attendance is not mandatory, but I do ask that if students are going to miss that day that they get into contact with me. Additionally, there is no charge for this club. This club will have a maximum capacity of 30 students, so it will be first-come first-served.
Thank you for considering Team Sports Club! If there are any additional questions, please let me know.
Throughout the school year student council will sell spirit sticks to raise funds along with Valentine grams in February. Student council will vote on projects for this year and their fund raising goals.
Last year's student council members had a goal to raise $450 for Book Bonanza, an event where Mountainside students can pick out books, with the funds generated through students councils efforts they were able to add one additional book for every student at Mountainside! They raised double their goal, and with the additional funds they were able to purchase soccer goal anchors. This allowed the school to place the soccer goals outside on the playground for recess.
