Sign-up for Tuesday Music Mornings

Greetings parents! 
Does your child play the piano or another musical instrument? Are they enthusiastic to show their skills at school? Tuesday Music Mornings provide an opportunity for students to perform in the main entryway between school opening, 7:40 A.M. and five minutes before the first bell, 7:50 A.M. A piano is provided but other instrumentalists are welcome to participate!
We are now offering two 5 minute slots for sign up each Tuesday. Click here to register for one or more slots.
In addition to sign up, we will continue to offer time for children to try the piano on days when there has been only one sign up.
We look forward to hearing your children's performances! Please send any questions to musicmornings@cherrycrest-ptsa.org.
