Dear families,

We are so excited as we finalize preparations for Music camp. We are leaving in 9 days!
Attached you will find a Music camp Bulletin that gives you information about what your student should bring with her or him. Hydration is important, as well as proper foot wear. All students should have the music they will need at camp. There are no photocopiers available, nor printers.
This is a camp in a beautiful woodland setting.
Should you have any questions, please contact Cathy Moen at cmoen@norwood.k12.ma.us or me at lisasilletti@gmail.com.
At this point, if you need to provide a photograph, medical cards, or other documentation, you are responsible for bringing with you on the morning of departure. Please do not email it to me, I will not have access to a printer prior to departure. 
 
Your child will not be allowed on the bus without completed registration forms, medical forms, medical insurance cards, and photograph. (You should have been contacted by now via email)
Should you have any questions, please contact Cathy Moen at cmoen@norwood.k12.ma.us or me at lisasilletti@gmail.com.
Reminder to Senior parents – please let me know if you intend to come to Senior Night at camp or not. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Lisa Silletti
Music Camp Coordinator

Join Us!

It’s summer time and during the summer we sell concessions at the town common to hep raise awareness about the town music programs and start fund raising for the coming school year.  We do this on Wednesday and Sunday nights during the Summer Concerts on the Common, and Summerfest Concerts.  We are always looking for help.  You can sign up now at Doodle and help out!

Please help us spread the word, and forward to your local friends.
1 in 10 households buy a mattress each year. One of your friends will buy a mattress or maybe you need one. Help them save and help the Music Program!
