   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.

Hello! And welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year!

We have spent this week doing our introductory assemblies at each of our schools,
and have been impressed and pleased with the enthusiasm and 
background knowledge of this years' 5th graders!

The next step in getting involved in the Band or Orchestra is to 
come to one of our 


These are going to be on August 27th at Arvada West
and on August 28th at Ralston Valley. 
Both nights begin at 7 pm,
and they're basically the same event both days, so no need to come to both.

At these nights, you will get all the necessary information
you need to get you child signed up for band or orchestra, 
your child will have the opportunity to try every instrument in the band
or orchestra under the helpful eyes of high school musicians. 

These are great nights, and a wonderful opportunity for you 
and your child.

We look forward to seeing you there!!

If you did not receive the flier about these nights in your child's Friday folder, 
please check out the "Useful Forms" link up above. We post everything that
we send home .....
just in case.

Mr. Alcorn and Ms. Rutka
