Action Required: NEW Trace Log

Please fill out the following form for the rehearsals next week.

Communication

We have limited hours of rehearsal all together for our public performances of the S P I R I T Show. Please make every effort to be at ALL of the rehearsals.


Although there are no grades being taken for rehearsals this year, the only excused absences (besides Covid related quarantine) are student illness or death in the family. Unexcused absences could affect performance participation now and in the future! Be here!


Simply put, if you are healthy and in the S P I R I T Show, you need to be here.


If you are absent, please email Mr. Barnard and Mrs. Eby.

Grades

If you did not pass the First Nine Weeks (ending on October 16) or did not turn in an approved waiver, you are currently ineligible to attend performances.


Your next chance to gain eligibility is at the Three Weeks Progress report on November 6. You must be passing all of your classes at this point!


Remember, rehearsals are still required, even if ineligible!


Review communication from Dr. Whitfield concerning WebEx and attendance clarifications for the Second Nine Weeks!

For the month of November, the S P I R I T Show will rehearse on Tuesday and Thursdays from 4:45 to 6:00PM. Please consult the calendar on the band website!
