The 2017-18 school year is just a week away!  Here are a few reminders as you are getting ready for school:

  • All students should have instruments & other supplies for the first day of class.
  • 6th graders should drop off instruments ASAP so Mrs.Schettler-Stein can get them tuned & set-up so they are ready to go!  (If you are renting an instrument, the music companies should be able to drop it off at the school for Mrs.Schettler-Stein.  Feel free to call the company you are renting from to confirm delivery.)
