Parent Teacher Conferences - Tuesday Oct 10th

posted Sep 27, 2017, 8:47 AM by Bernie Gerstmayr

Parent teacher conference time-slots are open for signing up on October 10th.
Due to the fact that i have 125 band students, plus my 16-student guitar class,
logically it makes sense that I won’t be able to see everybody. 

If you are an upperclassmen parent and just want to say hello,
this conference time might not be the best time to do that. 
It is most important that I see new member/freshman parents
to touch base and meet possibly for the first time.

If there is a question/concern or you would like information about
how your student can continue to succeed in music in and outside of class,
definitely sign up for a conference time with me.
Otherwise we can set up a longer time to meet and talk, or
say hello at an upcoming concert or game!
