Hello!  I am Mrs. Packard, your child’s music teacher for 2017-18.  I am glad to be teaching your child more about music this year, building on the foundations that previous teachers laid.  Each new school year brings many changes, and I feel that James Hurst students are adapting well.  I will communicate a few times this year regarding upcoming music opportunities that are being offered for your child.
