THS Performing Arts Boosters

January/February 2019

Notes from Mr. Moore:

As we approach the end of our first semester, I wanted to take the time to thank everyone who has worked so hard to make the semester meaningful. So thank you to the THSPAB Executive Board, parents who have helped in a variety of ways, students who have at times kept me from running screaming into the wilderness (and sometimes have made me want to run screaming into the wilderness) and my family who puts up with the extended absences from home that are part of running a high school program. December was full of successful activity that included, straight superiors at Fall adjudication for the Mixed Choir and Show Choir, an excellent Winter Concert and a tremendously energetic Benefit Concert. There is one more performance to wrap the semester, the show choir showcase will be held next week barring further weather.

The beginning of next semester will bring new classes, new challenges, our Spring musical and of course our trip to Walt Disney World in February. Here's to hoping we can all stay calm and sane.

Peace.

T. Moore
