  • All Orchestra students need to take their instruments home daily and practice. We need to finish strong! There are upcoming concerts and playing tests for the 4th Quarter.  It is OK to take your instrument outside for Track and Tennis practice, just keep them covered and in a shady area.

  • From Mr. Henschied,
    "Hello everyone!
    Sorry to email this to everyone, but I want to be sure that no one is left out on this.
    This is specifically for orchestra directors, grades 8-12.
    I have just put up materials for West Ada Chamber Orchestra auditions this spring (for next school year). 
    Everything can be found here on my staff page. Please encourage students to go home and take a look at this as the form has some short answer questions they will need to fill out. Feel free to print them the 3-4 pages of audition materials if you'd like.
    THE SIGN UP FORM IS DUE NO LATER THAN APRIL 20th @ 3PM. Make sure students know this, as I won't accept entries beyond this point. I would even condone you pulling the sneaky card and encouraging that it is due by April 13th, then the procrastinators can feel like they get an extra week for being silly and slow.
    Let me know if there are any questions, and thank you all for your help and hard work!
