Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

It was great to see the orchestra students on Friday! Super great energy! Playing will begin Monday, August 19th, at 7:30am. Your name will be on your chair, so come in and have a seat! All Orchestra parents please come tomorrow evening to the Instrumental Music Parent Meeting in the Band Room at 7:30pm. Everything you need to know for the year will be explained, along with opportunities to sign up for volunteering and meeting lots of cool parents! I look forward to seeing all of you then!
Here’s to a new school year filled with lots of music!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

I am looking forward to our first full week. It’s an action-packed week of informative meetings, rehearsals, and getting into the groove of school. I’m looking forward to seeing you all Monday night in the band room. The construction is still incomplete, but you’ll definitely see the direction and vision of the improvements. It’s going to be a great space to work in. Have a great week and keep smiling!
