It's the last week before the break! Here we go!
1.) Thank you! Thank you to everyone who performed in the Winter Concert on Thursday! I think we had a really strong night and all bands played well. Thank you to everyone that came and watched - the audience was huge! Finally, thanks for all of your donations to the Band, United Way and to the Food Bank (Thanks to the Zicari family who took 350 LBS of donations to the Mustard Seed!) Thanks also go to Grade 11 student Cody Miller for conducting the carol band this year!

We will rehearse on Monday morning at 7:30am and then perform 4 shows (in the same fashion as Remembrance Day a few weeks ago).
All Fine Arts students are excused from classes on Monday, however, I do encourage students to return to classes once we are done and clear from each set.
