Hope everyone had a great summer! Remember to check your back to school supply lists and be ready on Sept 8th!

Information about Select Choir will be given on Tuesday during Chorus and will posted on the bulletin board outside the music rooms.

New for this year, Jr. and Sr. Chorus will have rotating lesson groups, similar to band lessons. Specific information will be revealed in class so that everyone understands how it works. They will be part of your quarter grade, bear that in mind.

All Tech Courses will now be held in Mr. Blake’s old room, C144. That includes Digital Media and Digital Audio Production.

More information to follow but I look forward to seeing you all in September!
