7th and 8th Graders: Congratulations on an awesome first couple of weeks of remote learning! Despite a handful of technology issues out of our control, you have done an outstanding job of logging on, asking questions, playing instruments, and uploading assignments. You make our instructional day very enjoyable, this hasn't been easy for anyone.

Remember to try to have your camera on (if comfortable) so we can help with posture and setup. This is also helpful for us teaching to a face rather than a blank screen. Keep up the great work and keep smiling! We are so very proud of you!

*If you need anything, please email a director, happy to help you with instrument issues or music books.
