Upcoming information…
Elitch’s Final Payment
Coming with your student by the end of this week will be a permission slip that also shows what is owed for their Elitch’s trip.  The due date is Friday April 1st!  We cannot take late payments and we don’t want anyone to miss out!  It’s going to be a great trip and should be a fun way to start tying up the end of the year.
So look for that and if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email me.
Spring Break Bonus Practice!
Practice cards for this week (3/14-3/18) will be due Tuesday the 29th.  During the week of Spring Break, I will not require a practice card.  However, students can earn some extra or make up some practice card points by turning in another card for the time between 3/19 and 3/28.
I am trying out an online form for practice cards, so they can be submitted by 3/28 through this form:
or the printed version I attached to this newsletter
Small Ensemble Concerts
Monday April 4th 7:00pm – 7th grade small ensembles perform (Concert Band)
Monday April 11th 7:00pm – 8th grade small ensembles perform (Symphonic Band)
Students have chosen groups and music to prepare and perform for you on these fun evenings!  There will be a variety of music selections and instrumentation that is sure to be enjoyable.
Rockies Game
Symphonic Band along with Symphonic Orchestra and Advanced Choir will be performing the national anthem at the Rockies game on April 28th!  This is an excellent opportunity for Creighton students and is quite daunting too.  Students need to have their parts memorized and sounding great for our mass group to represent Creighton and Jefferson County Public Schools as best we can.
Information is being sent home from other classes about the requirements to attend the day’s activities and baseball game.
