Good evening everyone,
Happy December! 23 Days until Christmas. 14 school days left in 2018. Countdowns, countdowns. As I remind my own children regularly: This stretch of time is a marathon, not a sprint. This is an incredibly busy time of year, and we must remember to pace ourselves. I hope you're all ready for another week. Let's get to it.
Here are your announcements:
Many thanks to all that came out yesterday to the pancake breakfast and craft fair. It was great to see the community come together to support our students and their educational experiences. Your presence and involvement matter a great deal to the students, to the music program, and to Inderkum. You are appreciated so much!
In volunteer news, we could use help at bingo. December is a very big month for our Sunday bingo sessions, and we need those sessions fully staffed with parents. Please consider joining us. The Sign-up Genius is an active, live document and is always available for sign-ups. Please examine it and volunteer for a shift. We look forward to seeing you there!
Auditions for Winter Percussion and Winter Guard will begin this week. Students were given reminders and informational flyers for these opportunities. I have also attached theflyer here for your convenience.
All students interested in Pep Band will be given an opportunity to sign up during class time this week.
Any students in Wind Ensemble who still need to be fitted for their formal attire will have a final opportunity to be fitted tomorrow, Monday December 3rd, at 5:30 p.m. in the band room.
Please mark your calendar with these important dates:
*Thursday, December 6th is our Winter Concert (in Inderkum's theater - all ensembles)
*Tuesday, December 11th is a MINIMUM DAY (NUSD staff development day)
*Wednesday, December 12th is band picture day during 7th period (rescheduled from November 28th). Please be sure that your students come to school prepared (uniform undergarments and completed picture order form with money attached).
*Thursday, December 13th is the first formal rehearsal for Winter Percussion and Winter Guard
*Friday, December 14th is Tiger Bazaar
*Tuesday, December 18th thru Thursday, December 20th is Inderkum's finals week
*Friday, December 21st thru Friday, January 4th is Christmas Break
As a reminder there are only 14 school days left in this semester. These days will be very busy for the students as they prepare for finals and fulfill various curricular and extracurricular obligations. Please keep yourself informed by visiting Inderkum's websitefor important events, dates, etc. For our students who have jobs and other obligations outside of school, time management and organization are vital to their success. Please offer your support to them in all ways possible as they approach the finish line to the semester. If at any point extra support is needed from school personnel, please reach out!
If I may assist you, please contact me. I am here to help.
Thank you, and have a wonderful week!
