Hello to all the incoming sixth grade students and parents! Band and orchestra will be starting up very soon.
Watch for the informative fliers that will be handed out during the first two weeks of school. They will provide
tons of information about the instrumental music program, necessary supplies, how to get an instrument, etc.
You do not need to get an instrument now and it is better to wait for information at this early stage. I look
forward to meeting all my new musicians!

If you are unable to find the information you need from the fliers or online, you may email me: Hopson_Mary@asdk12.org
I check my email messages every evening. So that is the best way to contact me directly.
You can also leave a message at my Music Office phone: 742-0164. I usually check for messages on Friday afternoon.

My personal website can be found here: www.turtlepuddle.org. In addition to the String Magic activities, you'll find lots of info on
Alaskan wild flowers, berries, butterflies, dragonflies, and hiking trails. It's also a fun place to visit if you are interested in turtles
from around the world. It is educational and child-safe.
