Signing up for Remind

Hello!  This week, we took a minute to enroll almost everyone in the Remind app.  If you would like to receive these notifications as well, here are the directions on how!

Easiest way is by text:

Number to enter: 81010

Message should read (based on your child’s orchestra):

Chamber: @gaa9b

Concert: @rjhconcert

Symphony: @rjhsymph

Philharmonic: @rjhphil

You will get a response asking for your name.  Reply with that, and you’re all set!

Other ways:

Sign up for remind on their website: www.remind.com – set up a brief profile, and then select “join a class.”  Use the codes above (you won’t need the “@” symbol).

Try this link:  http://www.remind.com/join/_____ (the blank should be the class code, again without the “@” symbol).


If none of these work, let me know, and I can manually enter you in the class.


Contact me with any questions or concerns.  Have a great weekend!

Concert Date Change

Hello parents!  A very quick, important announcement.

Our fall concert has been moved.  The originally conflicted with the Fishers HS orchestra concert; I have many families with children at both programs, I didn’t want parents to have to choose a favorite!

The new date for our concert is MONDAY, OCTOBER 10th.  Please note this change in your family calendar as soon as possible!  Thank you so much.

Week One – Done!

Hello!  Thanks for checking in on the website!

Whew!  We’ve made it through the first three days!

I hope you are as excited for a great school year as I am!  I have updated the “Forms and Files” link to include copies of the classroom procedures, as well as the return envelope and concert dates.  Students all received a color-coded copy in class this week.  Please get these signed and returned as soon as possible!

We are through all the boring things – instrument, folder, and rack assignments, school and classroom info, and procedures.  We played our first notes Friday, and it felt good!  A little rusty maybe…. :-)

Students WILL need their instruments EVERY DAY from now on.

As always, contact me with any questions or concerns.  Have a great week!  I look forward to seeing many of you at Meet the Teacher night on Wednesday, August 17th!
