Our school band teacher Mr. Doug MacLean also offers two music classes apart from band, the K/1 class participates in music class, and the grade 7 & 8 students have an opportunity to take guitar class for an elective. Each group spends time weekly with Mr. MacLean learning new music and skills.
Under the direction of our school band teacher Mr. Doug MacLean, the AAMMS school band has over the past four months been developing into an organized group of musicians. It is exciting to see our students’ discipline and music appreciation grow as they learn and play the music. We are looking forward to the AAMMS Band first public performance at our Christmas concert on December 18, 2013.
Some AAMES students will be visiting Vancouver on Thursday and Friday to perform at the BCSTA meeting

A solemn procession took place at Alvin A. McKay Elementary School on November 10, 2011 to honour Canadian Veterans across the Nation. Each class presented their tribute to Remembrance Day followed by 2 minutes of silence. Finally, everyone in attendance placed a poppy they wore onto a cross as they exited the ceremony.
