I wanted to send a quick note of thanks to all of you for your hard work this year. Folks, this was truly an outstanding year filled with so many personal student accomplishments as well as many highlights in the band room, in concert, and on parade. Be proud of yourselves!
I have to be honest when I say that I really missed being at Spectrum in the last two weeks of June. I so value the one-on-one conversations and class discussions about our achievements this year and hearing about all of your plans for the summer. Here’s hoping things are resolved soon.
I want to thank each and everyone of my students for their hard work and dedication to music this year! It has been a pleasure teaching you and I’m really looking forward to coming back next year. To our band parents – thank you for all of your help and for supporting the band program at Spectrum. We couldn’t have done this without you. Thanks for driving your kids to morning rehearsals, encouraging them to practice and do their best, and for supporting all of our events and fundraisers. It truly goes a long way and for that I am so thankful.
Also, thank you for your kind words and submissions for the Black Press Teacher Award – I was absolutely floored when I got the phone call from Black Press. This means so much to me and I am honoured and humbled to be the recipient of this award. I truly had no idea and would like to sincerely thank you all for your support. I feel truly blessed to teach you and work with you as parents.
Re: Year End Concert DVDs – The DVDs are now finished however I am teaching out of town for seven weeks. I will pick up and deliver or mail your DVDs out when I get back to school mid-August.
Best wishes for a safe, happy, and well-deserved summer!
