Thank you and congratulations to the Junior and Senior Concert Bands who performed in Port Alberni yesterday! What a great day for a trip up island!
1.) Band Festival Results!:
Both bands did really well and we received some wonderful feedback from the adjudicators. Band are ranked and rated Poor>Fair>Good>Excellent>Superior in a variety of categories. The Junior Concert Band (playing music at the B300 level or ‘Medium’ challenge level) received a rating of Superior-Minus (most scores in between Excellent and Superior). The Senior Concert Band (playing music at the B400 and B500 or ‘Advanced’ level) received at rating of Superior (all scores, except for a few, in Superior)! Bravo!
Thank you to our parent chaperones who helped the trip run so smoothly (especially with a broken down bus in Nanaimo): Carol, Jen, Lynda, Jacquie, Russ, and Tamara! Thanks for giving up your time to help our students be successful.
2.) Senior Concert Band at Layritz on Saturday (April 11th)
Please read the RUNNING ORDER for the Senior Band performance at Layritz little league on the weekend. Crew call time and call time for parent volunteer with trucks is 10:00am at the school. All band members need to be at Layritz park by 11:00am in full uniform. PLEASE GIVE YOURSELF LOTS OF TIME TO FIND PARKING AS THE PARK WILL BE VERY BUSY ON SATURDAY. We will be done performing around 12:45pm.
We perform “rain or shine” so please dress appropriately for the weather (Sun block, sun glasses, if sunny!)
3.) Raffle Ticket Sales for New Orleans Jazz Night
All students on the trip were issued a booklet of raffle tickets to sell to support our “A Touch of New Orleans” jazz night. PLEASE ASK YOUR STUDENT TO SHOW YOU THIS BOOK OF TICKETS and encourage them to get out and sell these. Raffle tickets are $2 each (books of 10 = $20) and we expect students to sell at least one booklet. For every booklet that is sold, students are entered into a draw to win some amazing prizes! Please return ALL books and money by Friday, April 17th (In sealed/marked envelopes please).
Thank you for supporting this fundraiser! I will have more information for you on Sunday about this fundraiser.
