Quote of the Week:
"There is no defeat exception no longer trying." - Ebert Hubbard
NEXT GENERAL PARENT MEETING: DECEMBER 16th 6:30pm
JAZZ BAND COMBO:
We will meet this week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during Zero Period. Please be on time (I know it's early…).
Shrek The Musical
If you are interested in being in the pit orchestra for Shrek, see Mr F ASAP. Full rehearsals have been posted on Charms. I will still need to add 4 rehearsals during the last two weeks of January. If you want to do the show, you MUST be available for every rehearsal in February.
You can download the call sheet here for Disneyland. We have two more mandatory rehearsals, Monday and Thursday.
If you are "behind," please take advantage of the Tour De Palm Springs raffle tickets. These will be available to you on Monday & Thursday after school. 100% of the proceeds go to your account! Think of it this way - buy $100 in raffle tickets, and you have a chance to earn a vacation AND support the band (which you were going to do anyway, right?).
Also - Super Bowl Raffle tickets are Due Thursday in the box with money (THIS IS A HARD DEADLINE). For each ticket you sell, make sure you submit a gray raffle ticket with your name on it for a chance to win some cool stuff. This is a no-brainer guys… please push hard this week to sell more of these! They are $5 each.
Concert Band & Wind Symphony - make sure you have everything ready to go this week. YOUR CONCERT IS MONDAY at 6:30pm!
