Led by Mrs. Heather Wright, the Monte Vista Elementary student orchestra played holiday favorites to a full house of students, parents, grandparents and neighbors on Wednesday, December 13th. Comprised of 3rd-6th graders, the orchestra meets to practice two days each week before school. Beginning students meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, and advanced students practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Just in case you might be interested in joining the orchestra next year, fliers come home in August, and students must join before the beginning of October. Orchestra is available for $200 per year, and students bring their own instruments (violins, violas and cellos). Mrs. Wright has a few instruments available for rental at an inexpensive price.
