Matador Instrumental Music Updates
Week starting 9/9/19
Bernardo Yorba Entertainment Unit Weekly Newsletter
The most successful students have involved parents.
Welcome to the Matador Instrumental Music Update weekly email– MIMU for short. This is your source for all things going on with the Bernardo Yorba Bands, Orchestras and Colorguard. MIMU is sent out on Sunday evenings every week during the school year. Each section has a heading, so you can jump down to the sections that apply to you and your students.
The primary form of communication is through the email provided to us at registration. If you know someone who is not getting the weekly email, please have them email Mrs. Neumayr email@example.com
