Happy 2020!

Welcome back and happy 2020! Here are some important reminders as we dive into semester two:

1. If you borrowed a school cello/bass, it MUST be returned before the start of the school day on Monday. Many students rely on the use of the instruments and will not be able to play if the instrument isn't here.

2. Schedule flip: 6th grade is now the first connections block of the day, periods 1 & 2. 7th grade is in the afternoon. 6th graders: PLEASE hustle down to get instruments at the end of the day if you need to catch a bus. Plan ahead and move quickly.

3. Chamber this week: Monday and Wednesday. We may begin rehearsing Wednesdays due to LGPE quickly approaching. Please consult with family/rides and be prepared to discuss this as an option. Payment one for Nashville and trip contract are due by the 15th. See Hardy for payment stickers.

4. 8th grade Universal payment plan: $200 is due Monday, January 6th. Please have this turned in by the end of the week if possible. There are no refunds after this turn-in date. Contact Ms. Hardy now if you need to back out/request a refund for any reason. Trip kiddos: Start brainstorming some trip t-shirt ideas!
