Music Notes


My name is Wendy Baker and I teach full time elementary general Music and Drama here at Alcott Elementary.  We are welcoming back Mrs. Rachel Harris to Alcott this year. If you would like to learn more about Music and Drama here at Alcott, please send any questions you might have to Mrs. Baker at: or Mrs. Harris at:  Information on the ACT Club (Alcott Choir and Theatre Club) at Alcott can be found under “Activities” on this website. 

As the Music Specialists here at Alcott Elementary, we look forward to helping to bring the joy of music to your children.  Mrs. Baker has been scheduled at Alcott full time for classes in kindergarten through 5th grade.  Mrs. Rachel Harris is here as well to teach Music to kindergarten, some 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade classes in the Music portable - #6.

Music lessons will be taught to the Lake Washington School District Power Standards for Elementary Music using a variety of musical styles, forms, and instruments.  Historical, World and Popular music will be a part of the music curriculum here at Alcott Elementary, using learned pieces as well as audio and video examples.  Please let us know right away if you have a need or belief that may excuse your children from any style of music.  At report card times, there will be an evaluation of your children's participation and effort in music class using the information below.

Your children's grade in music will be based upon their ability to successfully demonstrate effort toward mastering the skills listed in the Lake Washington School District Power Standards for Elementary Music for music students in their grade level as well as their effort to make good choices for themselves and live up to the five Music Room Expectations listed below: 


           BRAVO!        1.  Be sure to enter and exit quietly.

                                2.  Respect all others and musical equipment.

                                5.  Others first, help when you can so everyone
