Welcome to Music Class in our new 2017-18 School Year!


New and exciting things are happening in the Music at P.S. 39!

This new year at  P.S. 39 brings new initiatives to further promote music and the arts in our Staten Island community. Returning are our specialty ensembles, the P.S. 39 Leadership Band (open to all 5th Grade students) and the P.S. 39 Select Choir (open to specially invited 4th and 5th Graders!). This year we introduce “Music in the Community,” a monthly concert and workshop series that will present free musical performances by professional musicians from throughout New York City to the surrounding community, highlighting music of various cultures and backgrounds. And of course, we will present the hard work of our students in a revised structure of our annual Winter and Spring Concerts, with concerts now taking place across two days each instead of one for the convenience of families!

Please keep in mind that our Band Info Night for parents and guardians wishing to learn more about the P.S. 39 Leadership Band will be held on Thursday, September 28th beginning at 5:00 PM sharp in the Auditorium. Additionally, please ensure that all students have their required materials for music class with them in school as soon as possible (a notebook, a two-pocket folder, and two pencils).

It is my hope that we can continue to develop the strong characters of our children and improve upon their learning through a dynamic music program this year at P.S. 39. I look forward to seeing you at our school music events!

Musically Yours,

Mr. Elijah J. Thomas

P.S. 39 Music Teacher
