Happy Summer

Hello all! Summer break is almost here.

Many times we let our music practice stop over the summer. It is important to continue to practice, if possible, during the summer months. Just as we loose reading and math skills over the summer our playing ability can deteriorate during these months as well. I know that they don't have school items to practice, but they could continue to play from their books from the previous year, you could go to the music store and pick out a book of Disney favorites or other popular music (just check the difficulty level), or you can find some limited music on the web for free. It's great to have kids get together with each other and play together.

There is also the opportunity of summer camp through the school district. Your student should have brought home information in the last couple of days, or there is more information in the Rec guide that was sent home last week.

Sixth grade parents thank you for letting me help your student move forward with their skills for junior high. I enjoyed getting to know them and hope to see them in the future.

Fifth grade parents. I look forward to working with your children in the sixth grade and hope to see all of them continue in our program.

It's been a great year and I am looking forward to next year!
