Lenape Jazz Fest - April 6, 2013
This is the 10th Anniversary of the Lenape Jazz Festival! In years past, parent volunteers and I have used Sign Up Genius to handle donations/concessions/set-up duties/etc. Please keep an eye out in your email for this as we get further into our planning of this great event.
Typically each family either donates their time, food, drinks, or about $30 to cover the cost of what is needed. This of course is not mandatory, but greatly appreciated as this event is our main fundraiser for the year.
Maryanne Giller and Mary Catherine Bolton will be the contacts for concessions. If you are interested in helping with candy grams/baskets/etc. please let us know!
I will send a separate "Jazz Fest" email to cover all the details. Thank you for all the great ideas last night!
Edmodo is a free, secure, social learning platform for teachers, students, schools and districts. Edmodo provides teachers and students with a secure and easy way to post classroom materials, share links and videos, and access homework, grades and school notices. Teachers and students can store and share all forms of digital content -- blogs, links, pictures, video, documents, presentations, and more.
Each Lenape Band student has been asked to create an Edmodo account. I have deactivated their ability to post/comment on anything (except to me). As the site administrator I have control over posts. This tool has proven to be very useful in sending reminders regarding rehearsals, cancellations, A/B days, etc. You can set it up for remidners to come as a text or to your email (or none and just use the free app).
If you would like to be linked to your child's account please email me for the parent code and instructions. If you prefer that your child not have an Edmodo account that is also fine.
