My thanks and congratulations to the Senior Concert Band who performed in 5 concerts this Friday for Remembrance day. I was especially proud of your poise, professionalism, musicality and setting the tone for our observances. Bravo!
A sincere apology for sending out an email which I later realized sent from a different browser that does not have the bcc distribution list. Your privacy is important and I will make sure this is the last time.
The next few weeks will be geared towards preparing for the upcoming parade. We march outside unless there is torrential rain so please dress accordingly. Especially Jackets and Footwear. I would hate to have you slogging around all day in wet shoes so be aware of our climate!
Here is our week (NEW SCHEDULE DOWN BELOW)!
1) 37th Annual Island Farms Santa's Light Parade (Say that 5 times fast)
A reminder to new families, The Spectrum Community School Marching Band will be participating in its 14th annual Christmas Light Parade... and we are the only Marching Band in it... so imagine the love you get from the stands :)! Please know this is a mandatory performance and participation is not optional. Where we go one, we go all! Please know students will be required 4:00pm to 730pm on Saturday, November 24th. Details to follow
2) Spectrum Band Wear
The deadline for Spectrum Band Wear is approaching fast. Please come to the band room and pick up a form so you can don the latest and greatest of spectrum band fashion :) Deadline is November 16th, 2pm.
3) Glanford Camp Pringle Retreat November 18/19th
I am still waiting to hear about the Chaperone status of Glanford before moving further. Is there anyone here who would like to jump on the bus if they are unable to secure parents?
