Calling all 2nd grade musicians!
Over the next few weeks, every current 2nd grader will get the chance to hear a performance by members of our school orchestra AND try each of the instruments offered in our orchestra program: Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass. Nearly 1,000 children across D303 elementary schools are involved in our elementary orchestra program!
If your child is interested in joining us, please mark your calendar for our NEW Orchestra Parent Information meeting! At the virtual meeting, you will meet your orchestra director, learn details about the program, how to register, and how to rent an instrument. Each meeting will present the same information, so please join us when you can. We look forward to meeting with you. Please join us for one of these meetings:

Also, if your child attends Baker Station, please remember to notify them if your child will not be attending.
Families, If your child is not following their regular dismissal plan (riding the bus, picked up from school, or staying after for a program), would you please be sure to provide me with the information in a note? If you are emailing, please also include our school office staff firstname.lastname@example.org, so that information is shared in a timely manner. Informing us helps us ensure the safety of the kids.
