  • Quyana to Jean Lenoir at Mirror Lake Middle School! Ms. Lenoir has been an excellent source of encouragement and enthusiasm for her orchestra students. She has cultivated their energy and talent this year. At each of their performances her Advanced Orchestra has continued to impress the audience with their talent. Ms. Lenoir has worked hard with her group of students and took 12 of them on a trip to the Heritage Music Festival in San Diego. The small, but talented orchestra conducted by Ms. Lenoir earned first place in the middle school orchestra competition last Saturday. Thank you Ms. Lenoir for your dedication and enthusiasm. I know the students have benefited greatly from their time with you.

    - Ingrid Petrie, parent
