Golden Stand Students!

Many Strings students will be nominated by their peers throughout the month for going above and beyond in the classroom. One lucky student from each class will be chosen by random draw to be a Golden Stand Student for the entire month!


October Golden Stand Students:

6th Grade - Kylie B

7th Grade - Shea F

8th Grade - Olivia H


Important Dates:

Monday, October 15 - 2 hour Early Dismissal

Tuesday, October 16 - End 1st 9 Weeks

Tuesday, October 23 - 3 hour delay / Parent-Teacher Conferences 3-6pm

Monday, October 29 - All State Orchestra Registration Due (7th & 8th Grade)



Strings Homework - Students are expected to practice a minimum of 30 minutes each week.  Often students are given a few minutes each day to practice, making it easy for them to get their practice time in without taking their instrument home. I will be working with each student to determine how much extra (outside of the school day) practice they need to achieve their best.

Extra credit will be given for any parent verified practice time (or home performance time).
