Orchestra Performing for the nursing homes the last week of school before winter break!!

Dear Parents of 7th & 8th Grade Strings Students,
December is almost upon us and I think it is a great thing for our students to give back to the people in our community. In past years I have taken string students to nursing homes to perform for the residents and I would like to do it again this year. I will be having morning rehearsals for the next 4 weeks from 7:30-8:15am and after school rehearsals from 3:15-4:30pm. Students that would like to go on these field trips need to come to at least three mornings a week and all after school practices each week.

The Morning Practices are: November 18-21 (no rehearsal on Friday), November 25-26, December 2-6, and 9-13. 

The After School Practices are: November 19, 21, December 13.
