End of year and looking toward next year

Thanks to everyone for making the past year a success. TEACH Night went well, the directors were pleased and I hope you all enjoyed the evening.

Thanks to everyone who contributed towards the director's gift cards. We were able to give Mr. Swischer a $75.00 card, Mr. Gaskin - $80.00, and Mrs. Schellman - $50.00.

It isn't too late to fill out the form.If you are in ninth grade and up, and feel that you are eligible to "letter" in fine arts, contact me. The information and form can be downloaded from this site - see "Lettering Requirements".

We have some photos from TEACH Night but not of all the groups. If you have pictures of any of the groups on TEACH Night or during the choir recital, email them to me to possibly be posted on the blog.

We hope that everyone will return to participate in the Encore groups next year. If you know for certain that you will not be returning, please let me know.

Orchestra and band students - please practice your instrument over the summer. If you are interested in private lessons, check with Hume Music Store, or contact the following high school students that teach privately:

Luke Rhodes - piano lessons -

Emily Bachert - clarinet/percussion -

Many of our students have participated in music competitions over the past year. If you are interested in knowing more about these opportunities, please email me.

Have a wonderful summer!
