Happy New Year! I hope your family had an enjoyable Winter Break filled with plenty of family time and relaxation. We are already putting the kids to work as we have a very busy semester ahead.

All Region Clinic and Concert - January 25-26
Martin High School has over 60 students that made a region orchestra! This is an outstanding feat and I am so very impressed with our kids.

The All-Region Clinic and Concert is in Fort Worth at IM Terrell Academy. Because this event is out of district, all participants are required to ride a bus to Fort Worth. More information will be sent home in class when it is available. The district is providing this transportation so I am waiting to receive their information. Students will not be missing any class for this event.

All students should have gone to their bit.ly to print concert music and read information about rehearsal times.
