Hello Northwest Kansas,

Yes, it is time to begin the school year once again. I hope you had a restful and relaxing summer. Soon the percussion will be sounding from the field while the solfege flows from our choir rooms. As we begin selecting repertoire for our classes, I encourage you to continue to visit our website. The deadlines are posted under the calendar tab.

Something new and fun is in the works! KMEA is embarking on a new state level choir for elementary. I would encourage you to go to the state website for the details. It is going to be a great opportunity for our student to have a top notch musical experience with an exceptional clinician.

If you are new to our district, I would like to extend you a welcome. This district has numerous occasions to become involved with our organization. We have a variety of honor groups for your students. I encourage you to participate as it is way to meet others in the profession with similar duties and experiences. Our district also has a mentoring program. I hope you consider participation. Just click on the mentoring tab for more information.

We are in the process of drawing up bylaws for the district. They are going to be posted under the tab labelled "About" upon their completion. It is our intention to vote these in at our district December business meeting. Please consider attending the 1:00 meeting in Palmer Hall at Fort Hays State University. We would like to see a large showing as to allow for all to express their views.

Finally, please don't hesitate to contact the chair people or myself if you have any questions. We are here to serve our students and our teachers.


Stacey Williams, District President
