What does it mean to HOST at IP?

Families take turns hosting merienda and monitoring the halls every IP Sunday.

Merienda will be hosted by Bonifacio families.

Sign up to bring a dish to share. Hosting families prep and serve merienda. Families with multiple children should host with your OLDEST child's class.

Returning families will see that merienda is being scaled down, so this should be more like a snack than a feast.

Binhi families will serve as the On-Site Team

Help with set up and break down of rooms, guide people to check-in, check for name tags, guide students safely through the halls to class, and be on hand for any extra help needed outside the classroom.

Interested in Beginner Rondalla Class?

If you are interested in taking the entrance quiz for the beginner rondalla class, please arrive at the Bedford Center a few minutes before 1pm to check in. The quiz is simply a brief music theory test (on paper) of the ability to read notes on the treble clef and identify the length (rhythmic notation) of various types of notes. It will take place on the ground floor of the Bedford Center, so please proceed down the stairs and to your right (toward the door of the IP office) after you check in. Children must be at least eight years old to participate.

The quiz will be graded after merienda, and results will be available at 5pm at the check-in table at the top of the stairs. An information session for families of students who are accepted into the beginner class (those who pass the test) will begin at 5:10pm in the Union Room, on the left side (the door to the left of the check-in table). The meeting will include details about class times, class expectations, and loaner instruments.

Please contact Tita Elsa if you have any questions prior to Sunday (Elsa.Janairo@gmail.com).
