Welcome to the SC Kansas Music Educators Association.
Please take advantage of the opportunities that are offered through the South Central District.
Check the website often, as it is the official means of communication within our district.
All information concerning district events will be posted here.
Welcome to another school year and the excitement and energy that each new year
brings with it!
The Executive Board of the Kansas Music Educators Association - South Central
District is diligently working and planning for our fall events. This year's list of clinicians
represents the finest in music education and I am excited to see these educators work
with our students.
If you have not already noticed, SCKMEA has a new website! Special thanks goes to
Troy Johnson for designing and maintaining our website. I encourage you to explore our
new site to gather the necessary information for each event. As always, if you have any
questions please contact the appropriate chairperson or myself.
Finally, each year the South Central District of the Kansas Music Educators
Association recognizes music teachers at the Elementary, Middle, and High School
levels for the outstanding and remarkable work they do for their students, schools and
communities. We all know teachers who are passionate about music and are
extraordinary in their field. Take this opportunity to nominate them for this exceptional
honor! New this year, SCKMEA will accept nominations for an Outstanding
Administrator Award! Does your administrator go above and beyond to support music
and the arts in your community? If so, take this opportunity to nominate him or her to
receive the recognition they deserve.
Please use the link located just below this letter to nominate an outstanding music
teacher and/or administrator.
I look forward to seeing you at one or more of our fall events. Best wishes for a
successful school year!

tool for ALL of us! Be sure to check this out! While you're at the KMEA website, you can find more
