Students and Parents/Guardians:
On Sunday, August 23rd I sent out several emails with the Strings Classes Information Form attached. There was a problem with the form and it took quite awhile to fix.
I apologize for the errors with the form. I sent out a final email on the same day (third time) with the problems fixed. In case you didn't receive the email, I am including the form here for your reference.
Thank you for your patience.
