Welcome to week five! I am seeing such growth and excitement about orchestra from your students and I couldn’t be happier to be working with them each day! Here are some updates:

***7/8 Grade Uniforms and 6th Grade T-shirts***

All 7/8 grade uniform and 6th grade t-shirt payments are due September 7th. These items have already been ordered and are in production, so we will need to pay the bill for them upon delivery shortly after September 7th. Please ensure that your payments (my payments plus, cash, check to Daniell Middle School) are in by the 7th and if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Bennett or me. We are here to help our students in any way that we can. **These are the SAME items needed for chorus…you only need 1 uniform for both groups. Mrs. Bennett and I order together, so no matter which teacher your child gave their size form to, we still got their info properly entered one time only.

Need a sizing form? Students can find them in the classroom on the orange bulletin board.

Need an envelope? Students can find them beside the classroom turn in bin.

Instruments

Please remind your students that all violins and violas are expected to go home with them every single day. No personal instruments should ever be left overnight.

**Smart Music**

We will begin using smart music for all grades very soon. Please visit our smart music page daniellorchestra.org/smartmusic/ for the instructional PDF as well as a video tutorial. If your student already had an account last year, they can still use the same account, they just need to join the new class. The class codes are as follows and can also be found on the smart music page:

8th Grade : AJANH-4AVVE
4th Period 7th Grade: VELJC-4RHCF

Fifth Period 7th Grade : 7YWR7-VAPJE

6th Grade: QGVFZ-DH2EH

Cookie Dough Fundraiser

The cookie dough fundraiser is due by September 8th. After that date, they will be shipping orders, so please ensure that any order you have is submitted before September 8th. Of course, the performing arts department is forever grateful for your support with our fundraisers!

Sound Innovations Books

Sixth and Seventh graders are now using their Sound Innovations books daily. If a student does not have their book in class, their performance is affected as they are unable to fully participate. Please reach out if any assistance is needed in attaining the book. It can be purchased on Amazon or at any local music store.
