Dear Spectrum Music Families,
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed some time with family and friends. Reflecting over the break, I cannot overstate how proud I am of new and returning students. I am thrilled we accomplished so much in under 4 months and it is a testament to the rigor and dedication of our students. BRAVO!
The mark of a new year signals a new era. Our senior students are preparing for their final semester (*tear*) and the Music Department is settling into routine. Every ensemble has arrived from holidays with new energy and excitement... rehearsals ultra-productive, every ensemble sounding more confident than ever. Musicianship at an all time high.
The final week of January includes Numeracy/Literacy Assessments as well as Copernican Blocks across the board. All told, we are entering "Quiet Week". In support of our students completing the first semester of Academic classes, the schedule changes as follows:
