Your Child Can Contribute to the Newsletter

Hello!  We have had a newsletter for CSA for a few years, sharing basic information about what is going on and up and coming in CSA.  We would like to add a section to our regular letters.  CSA would not be here if it wasn’t for the kids who want to play.  The board, teachers, and parents do what we do for the sake of the children.  Therefore, it seems fitting to hear from them!  Would you talk to your child and see if they would be willing to put in a few words in the upcoming fall issue of CSA?  We will include a few suggestions.  At this time, we are only looking for a few sentences.  If we have a huge response, we will be thrilled and find a way to share those comments!  If you have an older child, or a younger, ambitious student, and they wish to write more, even as much as 250 words, let me know and I will make a slot just for them in a future newsletter.  The goal is to have this ready to share before the fall concert, which is November 19.  


 “I love playing my ______ (name of instrument) because ______.”

 “I like to practice my __________ (name of instrument) every day because ______.”

 “My favorite part of group class is __________.”

 “I feel _______ when I play my instrument at the concerts.  I think it is good to do play in the concerts because ___________.”

 “When I play my instrument, my family says _______.”

 “My teacher is _______ (positive adjective to describe their teacher).”

I am sure as parents you can come up with even better suggestions than these for your child’s contribution to the newsletter.  

Please don’t forget to include your child’s name along with the comments so I can give credit where credit is due!  

Please have your student’s contributions back to me by the week of Oct. 29th – Nov. 2.  You can email me at:  If you do not have email capability, you can give them to your teacher on the Monday lesson and she can pass it on to me. If you have them ready sooner, please send them on!

Thank you for your help!  This should be fun! I can hardly wait to hear what the kids have to say!
