District Strings Festival and Extra Credit for String Orchestra

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Hi Everyone,

First off, sorry to all those who showed up for lessons this morning. Make sure you come to see me, or send me an email to let me know that you came for lessons. With the end of the marking period arriving next Friday, there are only a handful of opportunities for lessons. They are:

Monday April 4: All lunches

Tuesday April 5: Before School

Thursday April 7: Before School

The District Strings Festival Concert is taking place on Tuesday night, April 5th at 7:00m in the auditorium. There will be an orchestra made up of students from all of the elementary schools, both middle schools, and the chamber orchestra will be representing the high school. One piece will combine all three orchestras, and will have nearly 200 students playing at the same time! For those of you in the 2A or 2B string orchestras who are short on lessons this marking period or would like to improve your grade, I will be giving extra credit for attending the concert. Students who attend the concert need to save their concert program and see me after the concert to receive credit. Have a good weekend!
