URGENT: Chaperones Needed for Junior Band Camp
This is an urgent call for parent/grandparent/aunt/uncle support. We need 5 more chaperones to participate in our Junior Band Camp on March 6 and 7, 2018, and we need these chaperones confirmed by Wednesday, February 28 or else the trip will be cancelled.
If you are able to chaperone, please contact Mr. Windsor immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who are assigned Wall Climbing or Horseback Riding as an activity will be sent home with consent forms for those activities on Wednesday, February 28 at the latest, and must be returned by Monday March 5.
If you need to submit an updated Consent Form, download it here. If you still need to submit fees, do so immediately using the online fee payment system.
Music Festival Solos/Duets/Quartets/Ensembles Plan
This year we have over 30 registrations in the Highwood Music Festival, and March will be a very busy music month. Some performances will require parents to transport students themselves, and others will be transported by the school.
In the email that directed you to this blog, you will also see a link to a file that gives you details of what is happening when for Festival, and how the school is supporting your student(s). This information is not being posted on this blog to keep your student's information confidential. Please consult that file for more details.
Thank you for supporting your students as they enter into this unique performing opportunity! I am truly excited to hear them perform their work!
The Month of March is the Start of Marching Band
Notre Dame Collegiate will be marching in the Little Britches Parade scheduled for May 19 and the Okotoks Parade scheduled for June 16. This means we start our marching unit in March.
All Grade 7 students will participate in this unit. Grade 8 students are also welcome to march in the parade with the Grade 7s, and those who elect to do so will be given the music to learn upon their request.
Please make sure your student has appropriate clothing, including plain white undershirt, black pants (not tights), and running shoes (black running shoes would be most preferred, but we will accept any at this point).
Running shoes will be needed for every band class beginning March 19.
Assignments and Expectations
Students are also required to have appropriate performance attire. For Grade 7s, black pants, black shoes, black socks and a white undershirt to be worn under the uniform jacket will be required. For Highwood Music Festival performers, professional dress is required, but the uniform is not.
Mr. Windsor will provide you with some interesting hints, help, advice, and resources on this page.
