The MELS Music Collective will start on October 15. All playing levels and musical interests are welcome: the Music Collective is a space for students to work on their own musical projects, with help from peers and teachers, and for us to make some music together. Mr. Shieh and Ms. Richardson will sponsor the Collective together this year, and all students in grades 8-12 are welcome to join.

Jazz Ensemble members -- we'll start up again early October. Stay tuned! The Great Jazz Spirit is telling me that we're going to play Led Zeppelin this fall, and it's really persuasive...
