Good evening everyone,
I hope you are enjoying another long weekend. Please take some time to rest and enjoy it, as our next break is not until Spring Break in the middle of April. Between now and then, we have 39 school days, the time change to Daylight Saving Time, and warmer weather. The students, now more than ever, will need our encouragement and assistance with staying focused and rested. We can do it, everyone!
Here are your announcements:
Bingo, anyone? Many thanks to our parents who have come out to join us and volunteer. We are continually appreciative of your time and efforts to support the students and the music program. If you have never volunteered at bingo, please consider joining us. Our bingo manager is always ready to speak with you and answer any questions you may have. You may also visit our website for more information. The Sign-up Genius is always available, so please check it out!
Continuing with volunteer news, the Sign-up Genius for our Winter Percussion and Winter Guard events is now available. Please examine it and consider signing up for a volunteer opportunity. The Winter events are great fun! Thank you for your support.
In fundraising news, Poker Night is our focus. Please join us on Saturday, March 9th, at 5:00 p.m. at the Pagoda Building downtown. You may reserve your seat by visiting ourwebsite. The Sign-up Genius for donations and volunteers at this event is now live. Please join us for an evening of fun, as a player, as a volunteer, or both! If you are considering a donation, please read the instructions on the Sign-up Genius. Thank you all so, so much!

We are now down to 63 school days left in this year. For our seniors, these are the last 63 school days of their high school careers. Please continue to support the students in all ways possible. As our high school students approach young adulthood, it is vital that we are present and available for them, as they need our guidance, advice, and encouragement. Please remind your students that they may reach out for assistance anytime, as Inderkum's staff and everyone here in the music program are always here to help.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.
As a reminder, there is no school tomorrow, Monday February 18th. We'll see you bright and early Tuesday morning. Have a fantastic week!
