Welcome Wildcat Parents!
This page is one of many means in which I plan to keep you updated on your child's learning experiences as well as send you updates pertaining to music class and activities. Though your child will be sent home with a monthly newsletter to keep you informed, I will also post the newsletter on this page as a "just in case".
Thanks for visiting the page, and have a nice day!
Music Class with Ms. Simpson
My name is Brittani Simpson, and I am the new music teacher at Lincoln Elementary School. This year, your child will learn about the five elements of music, how to read, write, create, and perform music, and will be exposed to a plethora of world music and cultures. Please note that these are simply the highlights of what your child will learn this year in music class.
Your child will be given updates on class projects and be given reminders for music class on a weekly basis. All of these may be found on my Simpson County Teacher Website. Students will be taught how to maneuver the website, helping them to find their assignments and reminders when needed. While you are encouraged to visit my website to see what we are doing in class, I will also be sending a newsletter home with your child once a month that will inform you of what we have been learning in class.
Throughout the years I have found that communication is highly important in any and all endeavors, especially when it comes to education. For this reason, I would like to encourage you to contact me via phone or email if you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns.
I look forward to working with you and your children this year! Go Wildcats!

5th Grade Wildcat parents,
This year your child will learn how to play the recorder in order to expand their musical knowledge, as well as to prepare them for beginning band in middle school. Just as your child’s other classes require them to bring pencils and paper to class, I will need your child to bring their own recorder for music class. This will help keep germs from spreading as well as allow your child opportunities outside of school to practice for class.
I would like to ask you to send in $5.00 to pay for your child’s recorder. Once I have received everyone’s money, I will order the recorders and give them to your child when they are delivered. Your child will have the choice to keep their recorder in the music room, or take it home with them to practice. Please note that this recorder will be your child’s to keep.
I will purchase and provide students with instructional materials and music. However, if you are interested in purchasing the book that we will use in class, I have provided the URL for that item below as well. Please keep in mind that I will also post this information on the 5th grade class page on my teacher website.
Students need to have their money turned in to Ms. Simpson by Friday, September 18th. If there is a problem with turning money in by that date, or if you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact me at your earliest convenience.
