    Dear Parents of 5th grade String Students,

    Greetings!  I hope you had a great summer and are excited for the new school year.  I have been checking in with all of my students who played strings last year to ask if they are continuing this year.  Please talk with your child to make sure you are in agreement with the answer they gave me.  If they weren’t sure please email me by Friday 8/30 this week to let me know.  That will help me greatly with making the lesson schedules so we can start as soon as possible.

    I am starting lessons the 3rd week of September.  Students will receive a lesson schedule prior to the first lesson to tell them when to bring their instrument to school.  (I’m happy to tune it before their first lesson.  Just let me know they are bringing it to school for tuning!)

     Advanced (5th grade) Orchestra rehearsals will occur on Thursday mornings at K.D. Markley at 7:30am starting October 3.  We will have 3 concerts this year: Dec 11, May 13 and May 19. See more info in attachements below.

     I look forward to working with your children and making beautiful music together!  Thanks for all of your support!  Please let me know if you have any questions.


    Mrs. Joy Deminski
