Dear Recorder Program Parents,

Welcome back! We can’t wait to start a new year, and are so looking forward to working
with you and all of our community partners to continue to grow our wonderful HPHudson
program this year. Please read on for some important information regarding our reenrollment
procedure for the program, as well as important scheduling information for the

All HPHudson lessons and classes will run after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and
Thursdays this year. Our Fall semester will begin on Tuesday, October 3. We will follow the
Hudson City School District calendar, though we also provide our own program calendar for
ease and clarity. Both our weekly class schedule and 2017-18 program calendar are
attached here, and will soon be available on our website (
as well. You will notice on the schedule that there will be two recorder lesson groups; these
will be assigned based upon teacher discretion and family scheduling constraints (you will
have the opportunity to make requests).

Beginning this year, I will be conducting brief meetings with every HPHudson family,
individually, before we begin classes. These will be short meetings at which I can provide all
important information for the upcoming year and check up on supplies (making adjustments
where necessary), parents can fill out re-enrollment forms and indicate lesson time requests,
and both parents and students will have the opportunity to ask any questions they may have.
Meeting times will be available on weekdays, September 18-29. PLEASE RESPOND BY
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, by email ( or
text message (845-235-6189), with the following information:

1. You and your child’s names
2. Your day and time availability for meeting between September 18 and 29 (Please
plan to bring your HPHudson student to these meetings; siblings welcome as well)

All meetings will be held at JLE Primary School or MCS Intermediate School. I will send out
the meeting schedule by email and text message by Friday, September 15.
If you have any questions, please let me know. We are planning a fantastic year of learning
and music at HPHudson, and can’t wait to get started! I look forward to seeing all of you in the
coming weeks.
