Weekly Tests

Students are doing a great job with their weekly tests and daily rehearsal points. So pleased with the dedication I am seeing this year. Next monday, October 3, the test will be on performing rhythms and reading an article about the anatomy of breathing mechanism. Keep up the great work !

On another note, students will be able to see Your a Good Man Charlie Brown performed at U of M Dearborn on Thursday, October 6.  The admission is free, but we need drivers for the 10:oo am performance. Please email me if you can drive… otherwise I will need parent permission for them to drive themselves   The performance is completely optional.
