Encore Department Newsletter
I will try to keep you as updated as I can, and if you have something you would like to share please let me know. Because I only get five per year, the next newsletter will be some time around spring break. I would love to be able to share pictures and video links of your student performances and events, send them my way! At the end of every flyer, there is opportunity for you to share comments and participate in an online conversation (if you click on the link) with the department. As always, I am also available by email, phone, or just pop your head in and visit with me anytime.
Please keep in mind, my current intent is for this is to replace our department meeting; it is not to promote our department to others. Promoting the Encore department will need to come later with a bigger newsletter.
