All classes are off to a fantastic start! We are truly enjoying class time so far this year! We hope you child has come home talking about the new music we are learning, YouTubesday (on Tuesday), Whatever Wednesday, sectionals, Theory Thursday, and of course how fantastic they are doing on playing check Fridays.
Fundraiser: All students have been given fundraising packets. Please keep selling! Remember, the items arrive right before Thanksgiving, so a perfect time if family will be visiting. If you choose to donate: We LOVE donations as 100% of all monies donated go directly towards our program (tax deductible too!). All checks are to be made to Dickerson Middle School and turned in via white money envelope with a label (see a teacher). Thank you in advance!!
7th Grade uniforms: All 7th grade ladies have dresses that have been ordered and should be arriving by the end of next week. Dresses will be distributed to each individual as payments clear. Thank you for getting these in! Most dresses will need to be hemmed. Boys: fittings will happen soon, we are waiting on back-ordered sample sizes.
6th Grade: Our beginners are amazing! We hope your 6th grader is playing for you at home! On Friday, we had our first plucking/posture playing check on "Rolling Along." We also introduced bows! *All 6th graders need the Basic Music Theory and History for Strings Book for next week! This was on the original list sent home the first week of orchestra. Be sure you get the correct book, specific to instrument and published by Kjos. Concert t-shirt orders coming home soon...
