End of Year Message

Greetings Music Friends,

We have come to the end of another great Music-filled year.  We’ve had amazing concerts, hosted NYSSMA Adjudications, participated in All-County, All-State, traveled to Syracuse, Boston, Philadelphia, and was again named ‘Best Communities fr Music Education’ for the 4th year in a row, just to name a few events!  Phew, and of course we can’t forget that our Music Faculty performed in the 25th Faculty and Friends Concert, and the Coffee House Fund Raiser at Pine Tree.  Oh, and the Middle School had a visit from West Point Woodwind Quartet!  What a great year!

In addition, we had a number of our students win Music Boosters Scholarships; in all, we provided close to $7000 to students in grades 5 – 12.  Thank you for your support of our flower and candy sales, because without you, our scholarships would not be possible.

A special THANK YOU to Mrs. Regan and her entire Music Staff at Monroe-Woodbury C.S.D.  We look forward to working with this amazing group of educators again next year!
