Hello Music Parents and Students

Please view the attached flyer for the VJA Music Parents Spring Craft Show! Volunteers are a vital part of our number one fundraiser for the music program. Please consider volunteering for at least one shift over the 3 days. Thank you to Eileen Brown for coordinating the adult volunteers.

Students, please sign up for volunteer hours in the community service office at school. Mrs. Balestri will ask what day and shift you would like to volunteer. If you sign up, please show up. Student helpers are also a vital part of this program!

There will be a Music Parent Meeting on Tuesday, February 17 at 7:30 pm in the choir room. Please mark this on your calendar!
