·         Seminary Doctrine and Covenants prep day trips:
o   Of course you can go to Nauvoo, but it is worth at least a weekend!  Plus, you really should see the pageant.  It is amazing!
Now for the shameless plugs:
·         I do have music lessons slots available over the summer.  I will be holding private lessons on piano and violin for students READING at a 2nd grade level or higher.  For younger students, I will be offering an “intro to music” class once a week.  We will use percussion equipment, listen to some amazing tunes, and have a lot of fun!  Lessons are $12 for half an hour, and will occur on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
·         I also do offer tutoring over the summer to help with retention of information, a quicker start to the school year, to complete reading programs, or just to learn something new.  $15 for 45 minutes.
·         Spencer Terry will be offering swimming lessons in his backyard.  If you want his number, please let me know!

Have a great summer everyone!
