Pictures and Band

Hi All -

I'm sorry to have two posts this weekend. (Feel free to read the earlier one below or click here.) First, it is my goal to upload pictures that some of you have taken to our album, so check the link over the weekend if you'd like to see them. Second, I received an email from Mr. Borris about band and strings. That email is below and I emailed it to the parents that I have email addresses for. If you did not receive an email, please sign up at or send me the parent homework (or both!).

Have a great weekend!

"Hello 5th Grade Parents! 

This is an email from Jason Borris and Martie Muldoon, the band and strings teachers at all of the elementary schools in Pleasanton.  After visiting each school this week, we are very excited to begin band and strings this year.  We would like to see all of the interested students this coming week, (9/9 - 9/13) with no instruments.  After we have assigned instruments, we will start with instruments the following week.  (9/16-9-20)

If you are interested in singing up for band or stings, you can follow these links to the respective website.
If these links do not work, you can copy and paste them into your browser.  Additionally, I have attached a word doc with more information about band and strings.  If you sign up electronically, there is no need to fill out the paper form.
