From Mr. Cleveland:

Thank you so much to the jazz families for your support through the jazz season!  It’s been a busy but good one – can’t wait for next year!!!  Do your homework – go listen to jazz this summer!

THANK YOU from Ms. Gonzalez!!!

Thank you to the guard for the lovely shower and Thank you to the band for the lovely baby celebration last week and sweet little books and outfits that have been coming our way!  It was so fun to walk in to an office filled with 200 pink balloons and streamers and an amazing singing rendition of ‘Happy Baby’!  I heard the balloon preparation was intense!  I appreciate you all so much – and I am thankful this little gal has had tons of good music and sounds to listen to over the last 9 months while she grows!!  I wonder what instrument she will grow up to play…….Thanks so much to my band family!!!

Everyone have a WONDERFUL week!

Ms. G
