Just a short note to tell you what an excellent band rehearsal we had this morning with grades 4 and 5! The students came in well prepared, with their instruments and music, and were very well behaved throughout the entire rehearsal. The 5th graders acted as mentors and supported the new 4th graders. The 4th graders accepted the help willingly and everyone played very, very well! It was a super musical experience for all involved. I'm very proud of your children and look forward to many more successful rehearsals throughout the year...leading to the Spring concert in May. ~ Jim Carr
