Summer 2020

Thank you for a wonderful year 5th grade Strings. I would love to see you all in 6th grade strings!
Remember to drop off any school owned instrument at the front office asap.

If you have your own instrument, I hope you will enjoy playing along with all the videos posted during the last few months. If you don't have an instrument, be assured there will be one available at school in the fall for you.
