Tshirts are on the way! They may be here by class next week- I'll hand them out in our regular rehearsals.
Permission Slips: Please read ALL of this information. Our updated insurance policy requires us to get confirmation for EACH performance/activity we attend. Because of that, there will be an additional permission slip addendum for each semester (winter/spring). This week, I'm sending home a PINK addendum with every student, and a general permission slip, plus pink addendum for those who haven't turned in a general permission slip yet. I need both to be returned me before Dec. 1st. I realize turning it in with a once-a-week class is difficult, so please fill it out as soon as possible and turn it into classroom teachers or the office. They'll be expecting it and can place it in the music mailboxes. If you are not SURE about attendance at the events -INITIAL anyway, just in case. Failure to complete this, will prevent your child from performing at these events.
Dec 10th - National Anthem Performance at Del Oro Basketball - Timeline coming SOON! Plan for evening.
Dec. 14th - LBEF Home Tour - 10:45pm-12pm (the pink addendum states approx 10-12, this is our updated time.)
January 23rd - Chorus rehearsal (7:30am at Franklin Elementary, 9:45am Assembly, and Evening concert 6:30pm at Franklin Elementary)
Feb. 5 - Del Oro Basketball National Anthem Performance - Evening.
If you read this entire email, GOLD STAR sticker for you! I APPRECIATE IT!
