Welcome Back/Start Up Dates

Welcome Back/Start Up Dates


It has been a great first few days seeing new and old faces in the music department! I am so excited for this year and all of the amazing music and musical opportunities that our students will experience this year! We have a lot planned and we are hitting the ground running right away! If students have questions, please feel free to drop by my office and I am happy to help you out! For any parents wanting to ask questions please attend our RMPA BBQ and AGM next Tuesday, September 10 and we will let you know what we do here and how you can help! We are really looking forward to meeting you and saying hi again to returning parents!
