Island Park Choir
The Island Park choir is open to all Island Park fourth and fifth grade students. Students perform pieces from a variety of genres and styles in performances throughout the school year including the school's annual Veterans Day Assembly and evening celebration and the All-Island Choir Festival at MIHS in March. Students learn to sing in 2-3 part harmony and how to prepare for a performance while enjoying the camaraderie of their peers.Led by Mrs. and Mr. Hamp, the choir meets seasonally on Wednesday mornings from 8:15-8:55am in the IP music room. All interested fourth and fifth graders can pick up a permission form from the music room or download it below. Questions? Feel free to contact Mrs. Hamp.

- Background music: put these links on in the background while you do homework, play video games, read, do chores...
- The Hidden Word(s) Game: sing through one section of a song. Then, cover up some of the words, and try to sing through that section again. Can you remember the missing words?
- Phone-A-Friend: find another choir friend to practice with! Challenge them to the Hidden Word Game and let them try to challenge you back.
- Teach someone else: Do you have a little sibling or a friend who's not in choir? See if you can teach them some parts of the song! If you can teach it, that means you have learned it really well lyourself
