Directors notes- 12-5-17
· The concert is coming together despite the weather! All students have a set list of songs so they should be practicing!!!!
· After the concert students are welcome to stay for a ‘lock in’ party to celebrate their success this fall.
o JH- 10pm curfew because of semester tests. HS- 10pm curfew for students taking tests on Wednesday
o HS-12am curfew for students not on the semester test list.
· I would like to ask if parents are willing to bring some snack food/drinks for after the concert? It will be a ‘pot luck’ style after party.
· We need some candy canes for the concert. The small ones would be great. Email or call if you can help with this.
HS Choir- If you are not on the semester test list for Wednesday, I would like you to meet me at the hospital to perform some Holiday tunes from 9:30-11am. It’s a great way to give back during the holidays! You don’t need to show up to the school. I will meet you there at 9:30.
