LEADERSHIP FOR 2016-2017

All Calendar dates have now been approved and are posted on the website.  You will receive a copy of this Calendar later in the summer.

Remember to put together a Summer Practice Plan incorporating the goals that I set for you in your final assessments.  It is essential that you keep singing and working over the summer to prepare for the upcoming school year.
