Welcome Back!

Welcome back CHIME families and Mrs. Callirgos, our music teacher! Mrs. Callirgos was on maternity leave last semester… so I guess, welcome Baby Callirgos as well!


So far we are off to a great start! With the growing size of the school, there are many names to remember, classes to greet, and musical moments to be had. I’m thankful for the wonderful family I have at home and the wonderful family I have through my school community! I appreciate everyone’s support as I tackle this new role as full-time working first-time mommy.

Music education is my passion! If you ever have questions about the music program at CHIME, please email me at or stop by the music room (last door of the main office building) before or after school.

Have a great year everyone!

~Mrs. Callirgos

Dear CHIME Families,

Parent-Teacher Conferences are around the corner. I am available Monday through Friday to meet upon request with any parents who would like to discuss the music program at CHIME or their child’s progress in band. Please notify me the week before you would like to come by the music room so I can check my schedule and plan accordingly.

Other ways to stay informed about music at CHIME:

On another note, families who wish to have their 6th-8th grader continue or join band elective, sign up flyers are due to the office before November 6th. Space is limited on a first come, first served basis.  2nd trimester band students will perform their Winter Program on Thursday, December 3, 2015 and begin working on their fieldtrip festival music. callirgosmusic/6thperiodbandelective

If your 6th, 7th, or 8th grader is interested in playing an instrument in Band Elective, you’ll want to sign them up for Band Elective before each new trimester.

Congratulations to everyone for not only surviving another year, but taking it to a new level!

I appreciate all the support I have received from staff and families as well as witnessing all the students’ inspiring growth. The band concerts and culminating presentations seem to get better every year featuring the variety of interests, talents, and creative diversity this school has fostered. I am proud to work at CHIME along with the community that keeps it going.

This is not me, but it is the spirit of how I feel in inspiring my students to make music!
