5:15 pm –      depart RJH for Clay MS

5:30 pm –      arrive at Clay MS, check-in and head to “homerooms”

5:45 pm –      CONCERT Orchestra warm-up

6:15 pm –      CONCERT Orchestra performance (on stage)

7:00 pm –      SYMPHONY Orchestra warm-up

If you want to take your child home directly after the performance, I must have a signed note BEFORE March 20th.  I cannot accept notes written and signed while at Clay.

Please also be sure you have our ISSMA Preview Concert on your family calendar.  Monday, March 16th, 7:00pm at Riverside.   We will preview our ISSMA Contest music, and get valuable feedback from other string teachers.  I look forward to seeing you there!

As always, let me know if you have any questions!

Arts on the River

Hello Parents!

Arts on the River is coming up soon!  This year, Arts on the River is Friday, February 20th.  For those of you who don’t know, Arts on the River is a great family-friendly event, and is our biggest school fundraiser of the year!

There will be food, activities, games, music performances, art displays, art demonstrations, an instrument “petting zoo,” a silent auction, poetry readings….everything you could need for a fantastic Friday evening!

The PTO and Arts on the River Committee are in great need of help during this event.  Below is a VolunteerSpot link.  IF you are able, please sign up to help out on February 20th.


I know they would truly appreciate the help, and everyone at Riverside appreciates the support!  Looking forward to seeing you on February 20th!
