Music Department T-Shirt Fundraiser
(Many people have contacted me for additional shirts... I can put in one final "extra" order, but it must be done by the end of this week!! If you need a shirt, please contact me ASAP with the size you would like. I will be purchasing these myself, so payment can be sent as cash or check made out to Lauren Otto.)
Trills and Thrills Music Festival
We will be participating again this year with the Jazz Band and Chamber Orchestra (after-school groups), including spending the afternoon at Lake Compounce! The Festival that we are participating in is on Friday, May 22nd. Students will miss all of their classes on this day. Students will be transported to AND from the park, but must be met by an adult in the TEMS parking lot. Buses will NOT take students to their houses.
Permission slips and payment were due before break. Please contact Mrs. Otto for another copy of this permission slip ASAP. Tickets have not yet been ordered, due to the number of students who have yet to return their forms. If you are not sure whether your child owes a permission slip, please contact me!!
