Holy Smokes its February 18th?! Where on earth did the time go? Oh right... SNOWMEGGEDON 2019 AHHH! :)
I feel as though I haven't seen my students in months so I am looking forward to getting back to work... I was very proud to see 14 students from Spectrum participate in a reading clinic I held during our professional development day. There was a mixture of retired band teachers, current band teachers, student teachers and students from Spectrum and Oak Bay and we read through roughly 30 charts. Way to go guys!!!
With Spectrums Mainstage Musical and our Edmonton Tour just around the bend, our schedules will reflect the changes needed to make up for lost time and standard rehearsal practices. Parents with students attending the Edmonton Tour. An envelope with district field trip forms as well as full itinerary and packing list etc will be handed out Wednesday, February 20th.
