Week of 5/28/19 News!

Hello Music Family,

First off, I would like to say, “thank you” to all of you for my last year at Lodi HS. Parents, I appreciate what you’ve done for the music program and for the students. Thank you for providing them with the support and memories that will last for a lifetime. It’s been a wonderful coaster ride through my 8 years and I’m proud to say that I’m truly happy for what I’ve accomplished here for the instrumental music programs. Starting from my first year and seeing the challenges, dedication, and commitment that we, the parents, students, and instructional staff has contributed, really shows how much improvements and growth has come along. So, again, I thank you all and best to all my SENIORS wherever life takes you.
