Congratulations and Thank you to all of the students and parent volunteers who made our performance at Weill Hall so successful this year! I truly appreciate the many parent volunteers who made it possible for us to perform at this exciting venue. I am also grateful for the students who brought their best performance skills and mature behavior to the show. For me, this year's performance was even better than last year's. Thanks for everything you do to support music at Windsor Middle School. I truly believe that students that participate in a performing ensemble are getting something valuable that is not available to them in any other area of the curriculum.

- Arts Education aids students in skills needed in the workplace: flexibility, the ability to solve problems and communicate; the ability to learn new skills, to be creative and innovative, and to strive for excellence.~ Joseph M. Calahan, Director of Corporate Communications, Xerox. Corporation
Thanks again, SM :-)
