    I will do my best to respond in a timely way throughout the day, but am dedicating those times for student/parent communication. 
    ALL STUDENTS: Newest posts at top - be sure to continue down the page . My most sincere gratitude for your patience and understanding during this challenging transition!
    April 9, 2020 - I am transitioning over to Google Classroom, expecting to be totally moved over by Friday 4/10. Students have all been sent invitations to join their class via their school email account.
    April 1st - today, join the applicable Google Classroom & Sight Reading Factory (instructions below & on your assignment pages - do not join the 5 day free trial, join my account). Some students are having issues with SRF - I don't know if it doesn't work so well on their phones or if there are other issues. I may need to call the company soon & would like to address all problems in that one call. And please record your attempt on their site! Many thanks! 
    Taking the plunge... Google Classroom! - 3/29/20 @ 1:15 PM
    If I can figure out how to link to all your emails, you will get the codes in your inbox.... Being the technical wizard that I am, it might be more efficient for you to join on your own! Thanks! There is an easy quiz awaiting you...

    Sat. 3/28/20 9:22 AM - All students! If you have not yet signed up on Sight Reading Factory, or contacted me in the last 2 weeks, PLEASE send me an email (mtrees@saugerties.k12.ny.us) by Monday AM. I need to make sure you are all seeing what I am posting here & have access to YouTube, Sight Reading Factory, etc. and have your instruments at home... Tell me if you are having difficulty - but most importantly, CONTACT me! If I do not hear from you by then, I will be calling, emailing, etc. Please tell your friends... THANK YOU very much!
    Tuesday 3/31: Instrument pick-up!
    If you didn't take your instrument home, report to the HS on Tuesday 3/31 from 7:30 to 2:30. A music teacher will be on duty & will meet you at the back doors (the Emergency Exits, near the Chorus Room entrance. You cannot enter the building from our wing, please wait outside.) While maintaining the appropriate 6' physical distance at all times, that teacher will retrieve your instrument. I would appreciate a heads up via email before Tuesday! Thanks!

    3/20/20 - all NYSSMA Festivals are canceled.... therefore no Solo & Small Ensemble on 4/24 & 4/25 and no Majors on 6/8 (Band Clinic on 5/26 is off the books too)
    As of 3/19, The Metropolitan Opera canceled the rest of its season. I am heartbroken that our trip is off & will get working on getting refunds. The 2020 - 2021 Season is posted, and will start looking at that. In the meantime, they are livestreaming productions. Go to metopera.org for info. If Turandot is in the line-up, I will alert you.  :(
