December - Mr. Billy Ramsey

Mr. Ramsey has been a great addition to the HCJ family. The students really enjoy going to his music class and learning all the techniques of music. He led a great holiday musical performance for the students and the 4th graders were thrilled to showcase their talents. The students really take pride in what they learn in his class. I enjoy the opportunity to get a sneak peak of what the students are learning when I pick them up. During recess and other free time outside of the music classroom, students have the opportunity to further their music skills with the resources he has provided on Canvas.  We are very appreciative of what Mr. Ramsey does and look forward to what is to come! I know the students are grateful to have it all year!
