Upcoming Order Dates: April 4, April 25, May 16.

April 4 will be the last TRIP order for the credit to be applied to your tuition statements for this school year.

Orders need to be in the TRIP box in the school office or given to Donna Koopmans by 8:30 AM on order dates in your family envelope.

No late orders will be taken.  Please try to remind your child to bring the order to their teacher or the office right away when they get to school, so that orders will not be forgotten or late.


Please remember to take your instruments on Wednesdays & please complete the time required for practicing at home (THIS HAS TO BE A PRIORITY FOR EACH BAND MEMBER). This helps the band as a whole to continue to progress together. This also allows instructor to move each of you to being a greater musician. This is a great opportunity to showcase your musical ability, but it takes dedication and commitment!
