   I have my own particular sorrows,        loves, delights; and you have yours.    But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope,   love, belong to all of us, in all times     and in all places.  Music is the only          means whereby we feel these 
      emotions in their universality.

The bands and orchestras at every school are now beyond the first stages,
beyond the strange, inexplicable noises,

and actually making MUSIC!!

It's very exciting.

Please encourage your children to practice, 
to show you what they're practicing, 
and to try new things!

is coming up on November 7th at 7pm at Arvada West H.S.
Information about this event should have
come home with your child this week.
If it didn't, click on the "Useful Forms" link above, 
where you will find the note that was sent home.

Mr. Alcorn and Ms. Rutka
