Good Morning everyone!
A fun week at Spectrum! Congrats to the Senior Jazz Band who performed at this years Cops for Cancer Kick Off... with only a few rehearsals under their belt, they put on a great show for our staff and students!
Thank you to Elena S, Elena C, Miranda, Christina, Dana, Abby, Jennifer, Tyler, Ethan and Nicholas who volunteered for our 14th Annual Morning with a Pro this Saturday. They were consummate professionals, guiding roughly 70 grade 6 students throughout the day. Well done guys!
Our weekly schedule is below... a few announcements for the upcoming days ahead:
1) Uniforms and Parent/Student Volunteers
Our uniform fittings take place this week. Grade 11/12 Wednesday, September 26th. Grade 9/10 Thursday, September 27th. Both 6pm to 8pm in the Band room.
Bonnie McCallum and her team has graciously volunteered hours and hours to get everything organized for this event and it takes a village to properly outfit 100 students. If you can spare an hour or two in either nights, we would be forever grateful. Jobs include: Registration desk, chalking, fitting, organizing... every helping hand helps. Please contact Bonnie at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help out. Thank you!
2) Bottle Drive #1
Our first Spectrum Band Bottle Drive is quickly approaching: Saturday, September 29th at the Glanford Bottle Depot.
Thank you VERY MUCH for taking the time to fill out our google form and signing up for a minimum of two shifts. We have roughly 40 people signed up and 17 drivers. That is legendary!!! Thank you so much everyone! For those who have volunteered to drive, I will send out a quick confirmation email. Routes and Maps will be provided along with some of the best kids Spectrum has to offer :)
It is not too late to contribute and add your name to the list: https://goo.gl/forms/3nCtyjHJR9uaFPT13
3) 13th Annual Great Apple Pie event (In need of the apples :)
With the Apple Pie Event approaching.... 2 things...
1) We are in desperate need of apples. If you know of anyone who has a tree that needs to be picked... or orchards etc... please let us know, it looks like a smaller yield this year (like last year) so we are hoping to find a few hidden gems.
2) The school will stay open until 8pm for Pie Pickup. I know there are a few families who won't be able to pick up until later so we have arranged for a portion of the school to be open.
4) 1st Annual Spectrum Band Craft Market
We are still accepting applications from vendors and crafters for our first annual Craft Market. If you know of anyone who is interested please pass on our information :)
