I just wanted to send out a thank you to all of our amazing parents and students.

I truly love my job because of everyone involved in this organization and mean it when I say, we can't do it without you!

This is the last newsletter you will receive from me this year. Mr. Krubsack will be in charge of communications moving forward. My last scheduled day at East is December 20th, after that Mr. Krubsack will be taking over the helm.

See you in April!

Jux & Zoulek Clinic at Wauwatosa East HS

For the past 9 years the 3 year olds from the Watertown Plank Grandma's House have come to visit Wind Ensemble to kick off their musical instrument unit. Tosa East students demonstrate all the instruments and then the Grandma's House kids have the opportunity to get 'up close a personal' with all the Band instruments. We always enjoy performing and interacting with the 3 year olds from Grandma's House and look forward to their visit every year.
