Practice Slip Due:

Week of April 9th

LMS Orchestras

I hope everyone had a fantastic Spring Break! We only have 10 more weeks of school left, and many performances to fit into that time. It’s going to be great!

Practice slips are due Monday, 4/9 (100 minutes.) This is the practice time from the week before Spring Break, the week of 3/26. Any practice done over Spring Break is extra credit. This is the last week of 3rd quarter, so this is the final practice slip of the quarter. All late practice slips must be turned in by Friday, 4/13.

6th graders who did the Spring Break Bingo challenge should turn in their cards on Monday, 4/9. Late cards will not be accepted (except for absences.) Note: parents must initial all of the completed squares in order for students to be eligible for prizes.

Extra credit concert:
Saturday, 4/14 Cantabile and Greater Palouse Youth Orchestras, 7:30 in the U of I Administration Auditorium. This concert is free, please come out and support our local youth orchestra program. Several of our PHS seniors are being featured on this concert! (This is not extra credit for those performing on the concert.)

6th graders have their Spring Concert with the Beginning and Advanced Elementary students Thursday, 4/19 at 7:30 in the LMS Gym. Students should be at LMS no later than 7:00 and go to the Orchestra room (room 806) for tuning and warm up. Students should wear their concert black and white clothing: white shirt or blouse, black pants or skirt, black hosiery, black shoes. All black dresses are also acceptable.

Extra credit concert set up:

Thursday, 4/19 at 3:00 in the LMS Gym. Students who are able to stay and help set up for the Elementary and 6th grade Orchestra concert will receive 100 extra credit points (the equivalent of a practice slip.)

We will have a half day on Wednesday, 4/18 and will have even class periods. 6th graders will have Orchestra and 7th and 8th graders will not.

PHS Orchestras

I hope everyone had a fantastic Spring Break! Only 10 weeks left of school (hard to believe.)

Practice slips are due Monday, 4/9 (150 minutes.) This is the practice time from the week before Spring Break (week of 3/26.) Any practicing done over Spring Break is extra credit.

Extra credit concert:
Saturday, 4/14 Cantabile and Greater Palouse Youth Orchestras, 7:30 in the U of I Administration Auditorium. This concert is free, please come out and support our local youth orchestra program.

Students in Gray Orchestra will have their auditions for next year’s Blue Orchestra this week. The audition consists of 2 scales, a short exercise called “Turkish March” and a short sight reading excerpt. Students will have a minute to look over the sight reading music before performing it. We have been working on this music for over a month; I have every confidence that all students are well prepared!
