Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

The first full week done! Whew! That first week is always tough and stressful as we all get settled into schedules and new routines. I hope you all are scheduling in downtime as that is so valuable in all of our hectic schedules. My house went to Disneyland on Friday and had a wonderful time together flying the Millennium Falcon! It was truly relaxing!

Have a great week and don’t stress… It’s only week two.

Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

There now, that wasn’t so bad! We have completed a full week of school and we are all back on that bicycle… You never forget how to ride it! The orchestra has their seats, music folders, and has nearly learned one piece already! I’m so pleased by their musicianship and work ethic! More music and fun to come.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, January 16th… the Orchestra will perform at California Adventure. We will hope for a dry day!

Also… for ALL LCHS instrumental students, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra has made $8 tickets available to us for the first concert, Saturday, September 28th at 8pm at the Alex Theater in Glendale. Save the date! More info to come next week.

As summer winds down and school winds up, I wish all of you a wonderful week!

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!
