Homework assignment for the week of February 29
No 'official' homework assignment given this week. Students are to practice their music for the concert every night. Two songs that need a lot of work are: Old Joe Clark and Sailor Song. Those are the weakest pieces. Practice Practice Practice! Many students did not turn in their parent concert update signature form that was due the week of February 8. This form is in the class folder at the bottom of this page. It has all of the upcoming events for strings through June!
