Hello families of Senior High Winds Musicians!
I distributed information about the Senior Winds Trip last week before their last rehearsal, including the permission form, which is due February 8, 2019. An updated form (without typos) is attached. Please help your students keep on top of this task while they are on exam break and will not get a regular reminder from me. Rooming assignments and activities won't be booked until all forms are turned in by February 8. No additional chaperones are required.
Please also note the updated due-date for the fees for this trip. The $300 fee is due March 1, 2019. Notre Dame Collegiate endeavors to make every learning opportunity affordable so that every student can participate, however understand the significance of a $300 fee to any family budget. Although we still need to see payment, if arrangements need to be made to lessen the burden, please contact Janet Bennett at the school. Janet is at the school on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
While on Exam Break
Every student should have already submitted their List A recordings. If this is missing, it will have a significant impact on their mark. You can log into Charms using your student's chromebook login information (Example: username - joelwindsor, password - f3fanbie) to see how they are doing in this regard.
Senior High Students should also be complete their Breezin' Thru Theory Chapters 4, 5 6 and 26. They can complete this on any device connected to the internet.
Your students have also selected their List B and C pieces, and should be working on those selections right now. They have also registered their choices for performance in the solos section of the Highwood Lions Music Festival.
Even though we don't have classes, they should still keep on top of their musical studies so as to not feel pressured for success in the second semester. They can practice their festival pieces, Donkey Riding and Air for Band to ensure they are maintaining what we have already worked on.
Thank you for helping your student stay on top of their studies during the stressful season of exam break.
Mr. Windsor will provide you with some interesting hints, help, advice, and resources on this page.
