Quarter Four

What are we up to?

Spring has finally sprung!

This quarter, all strings focus and rotation students are preparing for our strings program on April 23rd. The theme is "Strings Soundtrack" and each song we will play has been featured in a movie or TV show before! The 6th grade strings rotation class will demonstrate what we have learned in three weeks. Congratulations to all 8th grade strings focus students that auditioned for the high school orchestra. All ACTS strings students were accepted!

6th grade students from all focuses are preparing for the opening number of the Americana-themed End of the Year Showcase (Tuesday, May 12 - $5 admission). Check out the strings focus guys and gals singing in the pictures below!

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. My information is at the bottom of this newsletter.
