Fundraiser, Uniforms, and Fall Break

by Mrs. Laux on September 20, 2016

8th Grade Genuine People Article Both 8th grade classes had a class assignment based on this article. We are working towards creating respectful, responsible adults, aware of the world around them as we prepare for our upcoming trip out of state.

Fundraiser Turn In:  All classes:  This Thursday and Friday only. No late orders can be accepted. Thank you for supporting the Dickerson Orchestra program. Estimated delivery date for items is November 14th. Remember, you are responsible for picking up and delivering all ordered items.

Instruments home for the break: It would be fantastic to pick up where we left off. PLEASE try and play through your concert tunes over the fall break. When we return, concerts are only three short weeks away!

Uniforms: All ladies dresses have arrived. If you have not received yours, please make sure you have paid for it. Try them on PLEASE!! All dresses come very long, you need to get them hemmed to the appropriate length (1/4 inch above ground in concert shoes). If your dress does not fit on top, please let Ms. Laux know now. It takes weeks to make a swap. Thanks!

Boy’s uniforms:  Will be here after fall break. Again, we cannot distribute any uniforms until they have been paid in full. PLEASE get your payments in.
