Announcing … All Saints Virtual Art Show

We are so excited to announce that Miss Galanides, All Saints Art Teacher, is organizing a Virtual Art Show for All Saints students!

Students may submit their artwork to the All Saints Virtual Art Show through Artsonia and can upload as many pieces of art as they choose. This is an exciting way for students to share the artwork that they have been creating while at home.

To submit artwork, please do the following:

  1. To get started, download the Artsonia 6.0 app in the Apple or Android app store, select the “Students” option, then type the Access Code FDSM-BSKN. You can view a short tutorial video on using the app at artsonia.com/videos/studentapp.
  2. If you don’t have a mobile compatible device, you can simply visit artsonia.com/class/access.asp. To register for the All Saints page, please enter the Access Code FDSM-BSKN.
  3. Once you are on the All Saints class page, you will be able to add your child’s name and parent email to the roster.
  4. Student usernames and artwork will be private until the child’s parent or guardian gives permission for it to be viewed publicly.

We will be sending out a link to the Virtual Art Show on June 2, 2020, so everyone can enjoy the creative works of our student community! See the Virtual Art Show Flyer below for more information. If you have any questions, please email Miss Galanides at lgalanides@allsaintsva.org,

Yearbook Orders Extended to May 29

We know these have been trying and busy times and wanted to offer you another opportunity to purchase the 2019-2020 All Saints Yearbook. With all of the closures, this has slowed down the production line in printing the yearbooks, so we expect the yearbook delivery around the opening of the 2020-2021 school year.

The cost for each yearbook is $23 and all orders must be placed online as per the information below:

  • Please visit the following website to order online: www.ybpay.com.

All Saints Band, 2020-2021

Special Message from Mr. Ward
All Saints Band Director
Learning to play an instrument in any grade is a new and wonderful addition to your child’s regular school day. I like to think of this as an opportunity to be on the ground floor, or at least the starting point, of a lifetime of learning to play and meet other young musicians, or to participate in diocesan honor band performances, or perform at a Kings Dominion or Hershey Park Music Festival. I am sending this notice early, because I would like families and students to not only get excited about this but also be able to discuss decisions and commitments to the instrument and our school program. My goal is to have our students as well prepared for the first day of classes as possible.

I am proud of our band program at All Saints and well aware that your student could one day be in the advanced band. A successful first year is the key to ultimate success and I will do everything possible to make it a great experience. The essential elements are desire and a little discipline. All too often the newness of playing an instrument wears off quickly, so the right instrument and parent support is essential.

We offer the following instruments to beginners in the 4th grade:

  • Flute
  • Clarinet
  • Alto Sax
  • Trumpet
  • Trombone
  • Baritone
  • Additionally, the drum kit provides a small drum and a set of bells, but we are accepting only a smaller number of drum students next year. Special considerations go to older students from the 5th – 8th grade. As beginners in fourth grade, I know students usually want to be with their friends.

5th – 8th Grade Students
Every effort is made to put your son or daughter on the right instrument and get them ready as soon as possible for advanced band. Students in 5th – 8th grade can choose from the instruments listed above. In addition, we also offer special instruments to 5th thru 8th grade students, such as bass clarinet, tenor sax, baritone and even tuba, for those willing to play these needed instruments.

The Garwood Whaley Music Program works closely with the Arlington Diocese to provide instrumental programs in all Diocesan schools. All Saints Catholic School has had a long track record, over 40 years of successful concerts, festivals, and individual achievements. As a parent you look for two things ln a program, and they are teacher quality and a proven track record.  Also, be sure to think ahead to high school and activities available at that level.

Music and Arts Stores located all around the Northern Virginia area assist us with instrument rental programs for all instruments, and are made available to parents at registration on Band Parents’ (Registration Night) . Check your school calendar for dates, location and time in Fall of 2020.  I will be introducing the instruments to all students in the first weeks of school with some send along information as well.

I hope to see each of you at the band parents night and /or the next concert with a student in the band program. Be sure to make this a priority to help ensure your child’s success as a member of the All Saints Band.
Sincerely,
Barry Ward

All Saints Band Director
