Good Evening Parents,
Here is my first weekly update for the year! First and foremost I want you to know that I view it a privilege to have the opportunity to work with your sons and daughters. I am so proud of all that they have accomplished, even before the official start of school. They did a great job Friday night at Lincoln's home opener and are to be commended for their efforts.
We have several activities this week which are included in the curriculum as graded assignments and it is critical that the students are in attendance and participating as fully as possible. Tomorrow, Wednesday, from 6-9p.m. is our weekly rehearsal, and the football game and warm up rehearsal on Friday are all required events. This week there is no need for additional sectional work, since we are working on the music that we learned at camp. Next week the various sections will be scheduling a sectional practice and students will receive points toward their grade for attending. We have three weeks of home games in a row and that places significant demands on our learning!
Thank you to those of you who have volunteered to work at the UM football games. Please check Ann's emails for further details. This Saturday we are in partnership with the Athletic Department in a fun fundraiser. Please come and test drive a new Ford vehicle at the HS. No obligations, but we need lots of adult driver volunteers to reach our goal. Please check with your student regarding the publicity cards that they received in class today. Also a reminder about the yard sign opportunity from Ann and the need for cookies from Amy (both emails).
Check the website regarding a leadership workshop opportunity for our students with Dr. Tim.
I'm looking forward to the days ahead and appreciate all of the support I am receiving from students, parents and school staff. Please remember to use this email address for band concerns or questions (I don't have access to the band room voice mail yet!) and I hope to see many of you at our upcoming performances. Go Splitters!
