Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

We are well into Orchestra Juries and I am so happy to see the improvement the students have made over the past year. One of my central goals for the class is for everyone to improve from where they started. I would love for each student, after they leave LCHS, to be able to enjoy playing music with others.

Please come this Tuesday, May 21st at 7pm to our annual Orchestra Awards Ceremony in the auditorium. We honor our Seniors and wish them well! Even if you are not a Senior, please come as we recount the past year, and look forward to the next! There are also class awards given and also some special awards. Hanna Park is making a video highlighting our year. It will be an hour of fun and memories. Parents too! See you there!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

We’re coming to a close and I’m looking forward to the final weeks of the year and then a bit of time off for fun and relaxation.

Awards Night is always a wonderful night of recognizing the best qualities in our students.

Come see the Jazz Band Sunday as we play for a huge gathering of folks for a fantastic community event. Fireworks after the last song!

Thank you all for your support and work in these final weeks and beyond. See you this week!
