    **CHOIR AND BAND STUDENTS HAVE RECEIVED THEIR PERMISSION SLIPS FOR OUR TRIP TO GREECE RIDGE MALL ON 12/5/19.  SOME STUDENTS NEED TO TURN IN MEDICAL FORMS.  IF YOUR CHILD IS ONE OF THEM, THERE IS A HANDWRITTEN NOTE ON YOUR PACKET.  IF YOU DON'T SEE A NOTE, THAT MEANS YOUR CHILD HAS A MEDICAL FORM ON FILE.  PLEASE BE SURE TO SEND IN THE MEDICAL FORMS BY 11/26 SO THE NURSE CAN PROCESS THEM!!  THANK YOU!**
     
    Thank you parents and guardians for attending our Hispanic Heritage Assembly!  I am so proud of all of our performers!

    Parents/Guardians- Thank you for your responses to our Music Ensmble Interest Forms!  I did my best to enroll students in either their first or second choice ensembles.    Many groups filled up fast.  We began ensembles on 9/23/19 and they have been running smoothly.  We look forward to seeing many of you at our upcoming shows with our brand new sound system!  
     
    Parent/Guardians- We have been so fortunate to get some new instruments through a grant this summer.  Please enjoy Mrs. Dixon's 3rd Graders using these instruments in a piece entitled "Autumn Wind".  They sound great and the students enjoyed playing them! https://www.rcsdk12.org/cms/lib/NY01001156/Centricity/Domain/862/20191018_110503_490688806235761.mp4
