We have a half day coming up on Wednesday, 1/17. We will have even class periods that day, so 6th graders will have Orchestra that day but 7th and 8th graders will not.

Blue Orchestra students need to commit to our trip by the end of January (if not before.) The trip to the WASTA-WWU Orchestra festival will be Friday, March 16-Sunday, March 18. We need a representative group in order to participate in the festival. If we don’t have enough students (or have too many students from one section not able to go) then we will have to plan on doing something else.

Students who plan to participate in solo and small ensemble on Saturday, 2/3 will need to pay for their entry: solos are $8 and ensembles are $12 (total.) Students should pay Mrs. Lacy in the office. Checks may be made payable to PHS.
