Swing Into Spring Changes
Currently, Swing Into Spring is scheduled for this Friday, March 15. With the recent news that the Sun Prairie Varsity Basketball Team has made it to the first state round, we are anticipating many scheduling conflicts for students at Cardinal Heights and Sun Prairie High School.
We have an emergency department meeting scheduled for 5:30 AM on Monday to discuss the best option for our students and families. All families of jazz students will be notified later in the day on Monday.
We understand that this may result in a less than ideal situation for some families and are working hard to come up with a solution that works for everyone. Thank you in advance for your patience!
Pie Auction at Swing Into Spring
We will be holding a pie auction to benefit SPHS Jazz I's trip to New York City at Swing Into Spring this year. If you would be willing to donate a homemade pie to a great cause, please email Deb Lohr.
If you would prefer not to bake, you can still help out by bidding on some delicious pies. The spread is always an impressive one!
6th Grade Honor Band Coming Soon!
Honors Band will meet after school on Thursdays until 4:00 PM and will begin on Thursday, March 14.
Wind Symphony Auditions
Band O'Rama: Monday April 8
Band O'Rama will take place on Monday, April 8 at 7:00 PM at the High School. Here are some notes:
- Our warm-up room will be the choir room (6th Grade)/the hallway outside the auditorium (7th Grade) and students should arrive no later than 6:30 PM dressed in their concert uniform.
- Please park in the student lot closest to Highway N and enter through the side doors by the stoplight.
- We will store cases in the hallway and the women's dressing room to avoid too much clutter in the warm-up room.
- After the conclusion of the concert, please plan on meeting your student in the commons to avoid congestion in the back hallways.
