Strings Class

I will begin string classes on Thursday, September 22. Please send your students at the listed time. Students will be coming from more than one classroom so I can't pick them up but I will look out for them across the yard.

They don't need to bring anything to the first class. I will be giving each student a letter. an instrument contract and a book. They need to bring back the contract filled out in ink. There is no fee for strings class. In future classes the only thing they need to bring to class is his/her instrument.

Students need to return the contacts to me as soon as possible.

Thanks for all your help in making this possible.
