Good afternoon Everyone!
Thank you for the well wishes! Everyone is back on track and I am looking forward to returning and working with all of you this week!
Thank you to parents who drove their student up to Uvic to take in the inaugural first concert of Uvic Wind Symphony season, it was a great concert and we look forward to supporting our local School of Music.
It is a short week today so here is what's happening:
1) Fall Back in Action Concert
Our Annual Fall Concert is coming up quick and I couldn't be more excited! Please make every effort to come out and support your young musicians. Bring your grandparents, uncles, aunts, dentists, paper delivery person, your next door neighbour... we have a great set featuring all four bands! I look to seeing you there: Wednesday, October 24th @ 7pm in the Old Gymnasium. Entrance by donation.
2) FINAL UNIFORM FITTING
Bonnie McCallum has kindly offered her services for a final fitting for families who were unable to make it. This includes a small number of Grade 9's as well as a few upper grades. Seniors (11/12) She will be in class at 8am so your speed and efficiency will be required. 9's, you will complete your fitting during Block A.
Parents, if you have some free time this Wednesday, we would be very grateful! Many hands make light work
3) Edmonton Tour 2019
Thank you for the quick response. There are 2 spots remaining for this years Prairie Tour. Have your form with cheque delivered to Mr. Jolliffe as soon as possible. First come, first served.
4) New Logo Unveil
I am pleased to introduce a number of new logo's that will slowly pop up over the school. Kevin House of Kevin Creative was kind enough to make this a spring project and delivered numerous renditions for us to choose from. We came to our conclusion after polling several students over the last few months.
5) 1st Annual Spectrum Band Craft Market Hours
Our 1st Annual Spectrum Band Craft Market is approaching steadily and we will need many hands to make this run smoothly. Band students, please sign up for a shift (or multiple shifts) to help out.
