Since our performance times are in the late morning the students will not be having lunch until after we return to Green Valley. Please make sure your child eats breakfast that morningso they can do their best at our festival. They may also bring a snack to have before going into warm up or after their clinic. I will have pizza delivered for the students to have a late lunch when we return to school. Family and friends are more than welcome and encouraged to attend our performances. Allstudents need to ride the bus to LVA but parents may transport their student home from LVA as long as I have a note ahead of time.


California Trip

The final payment for March 31 – April 2 trip to California is due on Thursday, March 17. The payment of $100.00 can be made in cash, money order, or cashier’s check directly to the school bank or the student can bring the payment to their orchestra class. Payment can also be made on the GVHS web store under Green Valley Orchestra Trip. Since our trip is the weekend after Spring break it is imperative that all payments are made by the due date. If you need to make other arrangements, please contact me as soon as possible. Please also note that after March 17 both the deposit and the 2nd trip payment are non-refundable if a student cancels.


Thank you for your continued support of the GVHS Orchestra program. I am extremely grateful to be teaching such outstanding students and I look forward to outstanding Festivalperformances with them.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have.
