Check it out! We had a special visitor and guest speaker in Symphony Orchestra today: Justice Brett Busby of the Texas Supreme Court! Justice Busby is not only a lawyer, and a current Judge, but also an active violinist! He came in to talk to the students about his background with music, starting suzuki violin in Lubbock, and then his middle and high school orchestra experience right here in AISD at O'Henry and Austin High, and then his playing experiences in Houston and even how he got to play with Sandra Day O'Connor!

He told us about his job at the Supreme Court and answered questions from the students about his music experience and legal cases he has worked on and presided over.

I am so glad we got to share this opportunity with the students, and am appreciative of the Justice's time, and owe a big thanks to Jenny Hodgkins for making it happen!

Thanks Justice Brett Busby ! We loved having you!

We have some gorgeous bouquets for you to buy for your awesome artist tomorrow at their spring and final concert for this school year! Come find our parent volunteers selling them by the cafeteria tomorrow!
If you haven't been flocked or flocked a friend, it's a very fun fundraiser! Under cover of darkness, members of the orchestra set up a flock of plastic flamingos in the yard of an unsuspecting recipient of your choice. It's a great surprise! Like being toilet papered without all of the mess. Do it for someone's birthday, anniversary or just for fun! We'll be taking flocking orders starting October 16th thru Dec. 2nd. Order Online at:
The summer is here, and soon it will be time for our beloved Ms. Kizer to move to St. Louis. (Is that even a place? Sounds made up.) And while we are excited and happy for her -- we are also going to miss her a great deal. But let's have one last farewell get-together. When: 11am Saturday, June 9 Where: Amy's Ice Cream, 5624 Burnet Rd. Tell everyone!
