    Family Wellness Night 2018


    The parents of our 6th grade orchestra students were welcomed to our classroom for the first annual Parent Orchestra event.  Students taught parents not only how we learn in orchestra, but how to play the instrument themselves!  All in all, the Parent Orchestra was a fantastic opportunity to welcome, honor, and connect with parents and have a lot of fun in the process!
