Good afternoon everyone,
As we are now in the last quarter of the school year, and as we are now experiencing Daylight Saving Time and longer evenings, it is more important than ever to support your students by encouraging self-care, focus and participation in all curricular activities, and good time management. The students have only 20 more school days until Spring Break. Although it seems far off, the time will move very quickly. We can do this!
Here are your announcements:
Bingo, bingo, bingo! This is our continual volunteer need. Many thanks to those who have volunteered at this important weekly fundraising event.

We are down to just 44 school days left in the year. There is much to do in this short time. The students need our support when navigating through their busy schedules. Please remind them that attendance and punctuality at school, and preparedness and organization, are vital to their success. They may reach out to Inderkum staff members, trusted adults, or anyone here in the music program for help or guidance when needed.
Thank you all for everything you do, for the students, for Inderkum, and for the music program. We appreciate it very much.
If I may be of assistance, please reach out to me.
Have a fantastic week!
