Shabonee Curriculum Night - Virtual

Dear Shabonee Families,

Tonight is the launch of the Shabonee virtual curriculum night. The teachers have prepared videos for parents to view at your leisure over the coming weeks, which can be found on the teacher's page in Canvas. Resources are included below to assist you to access the content. The specials area classes, including art, music, and physical education, can be found in Canvas as well. The librarian’s video is included on our webpage. We hope that you enjoy learning about the upcoming school year. As always, thank you for your partnership, and we look forward to our continued collaboration with you throughout the school year. 

Introduction from Dr. Panozzo  


Band and Orchestra for 4th graders

Fourth graders, and students new to Shabonee in grades 4 & 5, will soon have the opportunity to choose a band or orchestra instrument and begin music lessons if they are interested. Band and orchestra instrument selection will be completed virtually. Parents will receive an email with a link to the Instrument Selection Website on Thursday, September 10th. The website has videos of each instrument, demonstrated by the District 27 instrumental music teachers. There is a Google form on the website to indicate your child's top three choices. After submitting this form, the instrumental music teachers will follow up with you about your child's instrument selection. For questions, please contact: 

Ms. Carey Valente, Band Teacher

Mr. Peter Lograsso, Orchestra Teacher
