1) All-state auditions are this Saturday in Washington, IA. The bus leaves at 7:15am sharp, we will not wait for anyone. Every student must return the permission form. If you have not signed one, I have attached it to this e-mail message. Return the form tomorrow with you child. Remember students must not have anything that allows the judges to identify them name or school. This includes clothing, instrument cases, music, etc. There will be food items for sale, but students may also bring a sack lunch. Finally, all students that will not be traveling both to and from the auditions must provide a signed, written (hard copy) note from a parent stating in detail travel plans. If I do not have a completed form and necessary travel information, students will not participate in the auditions. Student must look nice for the auditions, no jeans, gym shoes, etc.
2) The annual sale of fruit, cheese and candy begins today. Students received brochures and information in all band classes today. Please ask your child if you do not receive the information.
3) Parking lot clean-up is this Sunday, Oct. 23. Same time and location. Beginning with this Sunday, the proceeds from the clean-ups will be divided among all students who worked more than the required four clean-ups.
4) Remember that class begins at 8:50am each day. Students must be on time.
Finally, my e-mail is still not working. I can receive messages, but not all sent messages go out. If you need me to reply to an message, please send the message to either Mary Mahaffa (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ryan Arp (email@example.com). They forward them to me.
That’s all for now,
