Due to NJASK 7/8 Testing in Rm 3 and the Multi-purpose room on M-Th mornings next week I have modified the band lesson schedule. Students in grades 5 & 6 who are assigned to meet me for a lesson on Wed April 25 will meet WITHOUT INSTRUMENTS. Instead we will have a written activity to do. Please meet me QUIETLY in the hallway at the beginning of the period and follow instructions on where we will go. SHHHHHH!
