    NEW-  A Message from Ms. Gallavan, our Music teacher:  

    Supply List – Music 2020-2021 

    Dear TJ Family,

    Due to new protocols and procedures, students will no longer have a dedicated music room this year. I will be traveling to each classroom to deliver instruction as part of the district’s goal to minimize the spread of COVID-19. I am asking that each student create a personal set of supplies for themselves since sharing of materials will not be allowed. Music instruction will be very different this year, but I am working hard to make sure student activities are as fun and as educationally engaging as they have been in the past. I’m looking forward to seeing all of our wonderful students again this year, whether in person or virtually.
