Hi! I was born and raised in Solway. I went to Bemidji High School. I worked odd jobs such as waitressing and cashiering for a couple years after high school, and then I worked 9 years as the school lunch lady at Solway Elementary School. I have been working summers at Concordia since 1988, and started full time at Concordia in 1992. This is my 13th summer as Head Cook at the Russian Village...which I love. I have cooked at many other villages as well. I was the food production supervisor the past twelve years but now am once again happy to be the school lunch lady at Schoolcraft. When not working, I enjoy playing with my kitties, tending to my flower beds, watching movies, relaxing on my deck with a nice cup of tea and hanging out with friends.
Welcome to Schoolcraft Orchestra!
Come and join the fun! Orchestra is open to all students in 4th – 8th grades who would like to play the violin, viola, or cello. (Orchestra is available to K – 3rd graders if they are taking private lessons.) We meet each week during the school day.
We play a variety of music, from Celtic to Classical to Fiddle and Bluegrass. We perform at the Winter and Spring Schoolcraft Concerts, and we have played in St. Paul and also around the Bemidji area.

Practice: Students are expected to practice 2 times their age each day, 5 days per week. For example, a 10 year old needs to practice at home 2 x 10 = 20 minutes each day x 5 days per week. A 13 year old would need to practice at home 13 x 2 = 26 minutes each day x 5 days per week. Kids love an audience! Ask your child to play for you!
Rentals: Reasonably priced rental instruments are available from Nancy Gallagher, 586-2536 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Violins and violas generally rent for $20/month, cellos for $25/month.
