The recorder concert is Thursday evening, April 4, so here are some last-minute items.
We still need two parent monitors, one for 8a and one for 8c. If your student is in one of these sections, please consider helping us in this way. Parent monitors basically watch the students and help them to be where they are supposed to be from cast call to the end of the concert. Monitors are able to hear the entire concert. If you are interested in helping, please reply to this email. Parent monitors need to be at EdOptions High School at about 5:15 for the minimal training required.
Cast call: 5:30. All students in the performance are to be at EdOptions at 5:30.
Athletes: 7th and 8th grade athletes will have a busy afternoon on Thursday. The Girls Basketball Team 2, Boys Junior High Baseball, and Girls Junior High Basketball Team 1 are all scheduled to play games. Students on these teams will be allowed to come late to cast call without penalty providing they have a written note from their coaches confirming that they are on the team and were at the game. Mrs. Wilkison and I still expect our athletes to make every effort to be at EdOptions as close to 5:30 as possible.
Concert attire: Concert attire is required of all 7th and 8th grade students.
- BOYS: Black pants (no denim), white dress shirts, black shoes, black socks, and dark-colored ties.
- GIRLS: Black dress slacks and black socks or black skirt with black hose, white blouses with sleeves, and black shoes. No denim! Skirts must be knee-length or longer.
Families who have difficulty obtaining this attire for their students, please contact Dr. Wolfe immediately.
Bus permission form: the 7th and 8th grade students are dismissed from their fourth and fifth period classes on Thursday to participate in the tech rehearsal for the concert. (This is when we organize the movement of 133 junior students on and off stage, figure out where they stand and sit, and so on.) TPA is providing bus transportation and therefore needs the parents’ written permission for their students to ride the bus. The form is available here .
The students seem excited to perform for you, and I’m sure you’re eager to hear them. I look forward to Thursday evening!
