We are ready to start the 2019/2020 school year.  Hope you all had a great summer.  Note there has been a change to the rehearsal schedule and our string orchestra will rehearse regularly on Thursdays after school in room 1080.  Please be sure to attend as we have our first gig on Thursday October 3rd for the Grade 8 Open House.  There will be a short rehearsal after school in the auditorium.  Pizza provided in the Science area at 4:30.  Return to the auditorium by 5:30 pm to tune and warm up.  We will prepare Hallelujah, Queen of Sheba, Courtly Dance, Resolution, and O Canada of course.  Looking forward to seeing you all!
