Upcoming Sixth Graders 2019-2020

Welcome to our Alamo Heights Junior School Strings Team and Family!
My name is Kathy Murdock and I will be working with Ms. Lani Gil as your Junior School Orchestra Directors!  We are both very excited to meet with each and every one of you!  We are sending this letter to each and every present fifth grade Strings student and parent.  If you signed up for a different elective or are moving; then please disregard--no need to read any further or to take further action.
We welcome you to our Strings Family!  Our first important PARENT MEETING will be Tuesday, August 13, 2019, from 6:00-7:00 p.m.  We would love to see you at this event!  The meeting will start with a short introduction in the Junior School Auditorium, 7607 North New Braunfels, San Antonio, Texas 78209, followed by breakout sessions wherein you will have an opportunity to:


  • Meet the entire Strings Teaching Team
  • Get appropriately sized for your instrument
  • Have an opportunity to meet with a local music store for rental/purchase/supplies
  • Receive important new information regarding the Strings Program
  • Inquire about school instrument leasing options and availability
  • Learn more about and/or join our Friends of Strings Parent Organization
  • Provide us updated contact information and have the opportunity to pay selected fees (multiple checks may be needed)
  • Enjoy some sweet treats!


If you cannot make it to this special event; we will be available by appointment for various dates and times during that week before school starts or once school begins.  We will send out updated information after that first parent meeting for any specific times or dates that might come available. 
AHJS Strings 2019-2020 Back-to-School documents can be located on the following link.  These documents will be updated in August and the site includes a tentative 2019-2020 AHJS Strings Calendar of Events, a 2019-2020 Strings Supply List, and the AHJS 2018-2019 Orchestra Handbook (includes concert dress and other important information).


Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. The best point of contact would be Mrs. Murdock’s email or mobile (included below).  Again, we are looking forward to meeting with each and every one of you and look forward to a wonderful year of making music with you!
Best regards,
