We are very excited for the many students who have decided to learn to play a musical instrument in our Beginning Band next year!

 

In an effort to simplify the process of obtaining an instrument—as well as the accessories and supplies that your child will need—we have invited representatives from Johnny Paul’s Music (Aledo) and Music-1st (Southlake) to our BAND INSTRUMENT RENTAL DRIVE next Tuesday evening (April 28) at Azle Elementary School. This will be the most convenient and hassle-free way for you to get what you need, AND you will surely find that these local stores work hard to provide excellent service as well as family-friendly cost-saving options.

 

Our experienced band directors will also be available to answer questions and to make sure that you and your student have all the information that you need in order to be successful in this new adventure!

Location: Azle Elementary School Cafeteria

 

Recommended arrival times:  * intended to minimize wait times and overcrowding

7:30 PM – Last Names beginning with the letters  S  through Z

* If it is not possible for you to attend your recommended time, come when it works with your schedule. We’d rather see you early or late than not-at-all.

You should have your instrument rental / lease agreement established by May 25th. We recommend working with Johnny Paul’s or Music1st because they have the most “family-friendly” options, AND they have everything you need all in one place. If you choose to purchase an instrument from a private seller, please let us check it out for you to be sure it will meet your child’s needs. We’ll need to be aware of your arrangements by May 25th  in order for your child to be enrolled in Band next year. 

Any Questions? Feel free to contact Mr. Fallon at kfallon@azleisd.net or Mr. Rollins at drollins@azleisd.net.

 

 


THE OLC

AE was the recipient of a whole school grant from the AEF. The purpose of the grant is to build an OLC (Outdoor Learning Center). Mr. Cook wrote the grant and his vision is stated below.

I want to create a sustainable long range plan to establish an outdoor learning center focusing on Native Texas species and hands on learning.  The center will have a walking path with metal stakes identifying the plants. Among the plants on display will be native Texas species and watering techniques found in xeriscaping.  The outdoor learning center will also contain a “disappearing stream”.  When the Stream is not on it will be used for demonstration to show the effects of water erosion on the rocks.  Contained in the stream bed will be “river rock” that has been rounded and smoothed by water.  The stream will also be a model of erosion and deposition with the formation of a delta.  There will also be a cross section of the earth to show students about the layers of sedimentary rocks.  Included in the rocks will be fossils of both animal and plant life.

The entire center will contain native grasses and native wildflowers.  Included in this will be a non-mow area.  In the fall teachers and students will seed the wildflower area with mud balls containing native Texas wildflowers that will be emerging in the spring.

It will be irrigated via a rain water line from an extension of the existing water line that services the school grounds.  The outdoor learning center will have rich biodiversity showcasing all of the biomes found in the Cross Timbers Region.  Included will be gardens, filled with organic soil and dressed with organic mulch.  This will allow teachers to provide hands on demonstrations of the life cycles of plants, and to conduct experiments.

Please fill take a few minutes to take our survey and watch our video about the project. http://goo.gl/wny5xJ

WORTH THE WAIT PARENT INFORMATION




NEW  Pick Up Procedures

Morning Dop-Off will be Lane "A" only for safety reasons.

Please note the new procedures for drop- off and pick-up.

There will be 2 lanes side by side. Please be aware that children will be crossing cars in the crosswalk area by the marquis. The lanes are marked "A" and "B" and flow one way only, to the West. The new exit on the west side of the building is one way exit only. Please note the diagram for clarification. The circle drive will no longer be used at all. This should facilitate the drop-off process.
