The year for Orchestra has essentially come to a close, as your children have Olympics this week during Connections. We wanted to make sure everyone knew what would be going on here at the end of the year!
Orchestra Lockers: All students must bring home their instruments no later than Monday, May 21st, which will be locker clean out day for Orchestra students. They will NOT allow instruments on the bus on the 22nd or 23rd.
School instruments: If they use a school instrument, I have a designated place for them to leave their instrument in the locker room (violins and violas) or the cello or bass room. If you would like your child to check out a school instrument over the summer, please email me back so I can send home a check out form. This is on a first come, first serve basis.
WE NEED HELP! If your child would like to earn Beta or other community service hours, they can come straight to the Orchestra room at 8:15am Wednesday through Friday of this week. (Tomorrow is our Fiddlers and Cello Choir celebration.) We have to do several things before the end of the year, such as wrapping up instrument inventory, music library, room organization and clean up, etc.
The last two days of school will be fun days in the Orchestra room, as we will be pulling out all of our awesome electric instruments for students to play, and will do some Orchestra related activities. Students WILL NOT need their instruments again at school at this point. If they took their instrument home, it should stay home unless they are participating in the SmartMusic Competition Thursday for Olympics (which is only a handful of students). Thank you so much!
