Majestic Monday Memo

Monday, August 31, 2015

What a wonderful group we have!

Our first week of school was fantastic. Everyone has been on time, prepared for practice, and extremely productive during rehearsal time. We've made great improvements on our routine, "I Want Candy", and I can't wait until we get to show everyone how talented our team is! Thank you to the parents that help get them to school for practice, and help keep them organized for the days at school. You're doing a great job!

We are already preparing for a successful football season. Mrs. Sorsby has volunteered to coordinate our meals on game nights. She has sent out an email to all registered users of our website and I've sent home a hard copy of the meal options with your Majestic. If you did not receive the email, or the hard copy, you can also access the order form by clicking the link below. Please note that this is an option (not a mandatory expense) for those of you who do not want to have to bring dinner up to the school prior to football games, or for any student who does not want to pack a dinner. Mrs. Sorbsy has options for all the different types of dietary needs. Please contact her directly with questions, or to volunteer to assist her during meal times (

This Week's Schedule:

· Tues. ~ Afternoon practice until 5:30pm. Bring your black leo and black shorts with tights and jazz shoes. We will wear this as our practice uniform all week, except for Friday. See below.

Wed. ~ We will have a team photo before school at 7:30am. There is no charge to be in the team photo, but remember your photo forms and payment IF you are ordering copies. Please arrive at school by 7:30am., wearing your Majestic Field Uniform and black sequined skirt. All girls must wear tights, jazz shoes, and red lipstick. The rest of your make-up can be natural. Hair can be down, but with sides pulled back.

· Friday ~ Before school practice, beginning at 7:30am. Wear your black and white top, black shorts, jazz shoes and tights.

Important Details to Remember:

Percussion Sectionals - if you are in the percussion group that meets on Monday mornings with Mr. Pape, please know that we are working on a compromise for scheduling purposes. Follow Mr. Pape's instructions on when to meet with him. I will honor his schedule until a permanent one can be agreed upon.

Remember to check the online calendar for upcoming events. If you are not able to attend a mandatory event, you must turn in an exemption form. See me for copies.

  • If you are not able to attend the VHS Middle School night (optional event on September 25th), you must submit completed exemption forms by Wednesday, September 16th, 2015.

If you are going to miss a mandatory practice, I must be notified BEFORE the absence occurs. You can do this by email, by phone message, or by texting your officer. See the handbook for more details and information.
