6th Grade Orchestra
Hello!
I am so excited to start working with this years group of orchestra students.  In the first week of school, a letter will be coming home with information about how to get an instrument.  The date that students need to have an instrument is Tuesday, September 20th.  In the past, I have seen students struggle when they do not start with the rest of the group,
so, please contact me if you are not able to have your child's instrument by that time.

 ** Students also need the book Essential Elements 2000, book 1 for whichever instrument they will be playing.***

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. You can always call the school and leave a voice mail for me (70246), but my preferred way of contact is through email, if possible (scrociat@livoniapublicschools.org).
