Music Program Fundraiser
Flutes and Clarinets and Trumpets, Oh My!
We have a dream, that all students can learn to play a band instrument. The school band is an opportunity for students to excel and enjoy being a part of beautiful art in time. Playing an instrument requires a person to utilize all parts of the brain at once, building pathways to success.
This fall began our new general music program for grades K-5, and we are building a band program for grades 6-8. We are excited to offer band as a middle school elective. Part of building a band tradition is to create an inventory of instruments and we need your help!

A Message from the Principal
I was so happy to see how many families and staff members came to OMSI for our Family Science Night. We had over 300 attendees. We want to acknowledge and thank OMSI, their staff and volunteers for helping to make this fantastic event happen.
With our recent bout of bad weather and school closure, I'd like to remind you that you may receive a text message from me when Astor has a late opening or is closed due to inclement weather. To set up this message service, go to your cell phone and text to the number 23559. In the field box (where you are able to type), type in @Astor-Reminders and send the text. You should receive an acknowledgement to let you know you have signed up.
If I don't get a chance to say this to you in person, please have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
