Happy New Year, L’shana Tova, to those who celebrate! Last week was fantastic, and it was so nice to get to know my new students and see returning faces. Although this is a three day week, there’s a lot going on. Please make sure you read everything pertaining to your performance groups. All-County information is under Group Announcements.
Reminder- every weekend I send home a “Weekly Update” with important information for the weeks ahead. Students, parents, and administrators receive these emails. If at any point you would like to be removed from the “Weekly Updates”, just email me, and I will take you off.
All my best,
CONGRATULATIONS also both Mark Russ on making All-State and All-Eastern. I learned Mark also made it to All-State Band! Congratulations!!
