Welcome and Happy New Year Rio Norte Music familes 

I would like to welcome all the new families to our program (35) and let you in on our biggest event of the year. The Disneyland Festival.  Each year, the program travels to Anaheim for a National Music Festival with Music in the Parks. This year it is April 13-15. The cost for the trip is $321.00 and includes:All meals (Dinner at Bubba Gump on Friday night, Breakfast -Lunch-Dinner on Saturday and Breakfast on Sunday.)
Transportation / Festival fees /Hotel costs /Disneyland
This is not a mandatory event so if you do not wish for your child to attend, it will not affect their grade in the program. Each student has an account detailing how much they have paid towards the trip. You are welcome to pay the entire amount or have your student fund raise. (Our next fundraiser starts next week) If you wish to join us as a chaperone, please contact Mr. Gilbert for the details, at: jcgilbert@hartdistrict.org

This is an exciting event in which our students have continuously achieved high honors.  The forms for the trip are located at:


Please complete these with your student and bring to Mr. Gilbert.  soon as possible so arrangements can be made for the group.  as always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email Mr. Gilbert

It's going to be a fun night, and we hope to see you all!
