Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
Welcome back! We are extremely excited to begin the school year and start making music again. We will be playing instruments and making music. In the coming week we will communicate with you a plan that will include information about school-owned instrument pick-up, instrument supply needs and music pick-up.
For the next week we will be participating in activities found on Google Classroom. After you log into Google Classroom you should receive an “invite” to join our class. Please join your assigned class. If you did not receive an invite you will find the codes listed below.

Students will also be using CHARMS Office to submit practice journals and playing tests. It will be extremely important to have accurate email addresses for parents and students. Your student will be learning/reviewing this platform during one of our initial meetings.
Throughout the school year you will most likely speak to both Mrs. Tennis and Mrs. Kenworthy. Please understand that we work closely together and will respond and post assignments for all classes; even if you have Mrs. Tennis for a teacher Mrs. Kenworthy may answer questions, respond to questions or post assignments in Google Classroom. Mrs. Tennis will also help with Mrs. Kenworthy’s students.
This year we would also like to welcome our student teacher Mr. Warren Lissner. Mr. Lissner is an education student at the University of Michigan-Flint. He will be spending the fall semester with us, both online and when we return to face-to face instruction. He will introduce himself during the first week of school.
As always please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns. We are very excited to see your student. We look forward to making great music this year. (Remember, we are playing instruments this year!) Please be patient with us as we get used to the “new normal.” We both have school-aged children and understand the stresses and uncertainty that you might feel. However, we are so very thankful for you and your student and look forward to an amazing school year.
Mrs. Milissa Kenworthy Mrs. Amy Tennis
