  • Current Information:


    As we move further into the school year, plans are still ever-changing.  We do know a few things at this point.

    1. Our normal concert schedule is on hold. We are proposing a spring outdoor concert so please stay tuned for further information.
    2. The music teachers are looking at many different ways to help students find a deeper undestanding of how music works and the emotional effect it has on us as well as the reward of how music connects us to others. On some Wednesdays, you might find your student watching videos on music theory, music history, or mindfulness.
