The 5 Days of Spring Break

Complete each task below, have a parent initial each one once you have completed the task and then turn it in. The time it takes you to complete each activity will count as double minutes on your practice logs.


1. ______ Play your 3 favorite lines in EVERY room of your house (who cares if people are sleeping!).


2. ______ Find 2 new lines that you have never played before and play them. Write the lines down: ___ & ___. You should be able to play them for me when you get back to school.


3. ____ Call your best friend and play Banana Boat Song for them on the phone 3 times. Then invite them to our concert on May 7th.


4. ______ Play Line 107 for a next door neighbor. They must sign the sheet to get extra credit. Then invite them to our concert, too! (Ask your parents to go with you!)


5. ______ Practice any Quiz Line and then play for your fish, dog, cat or pillow pet. If you video this one, we might show it in class!


***Remember to practice only on the days that you eat!


Have fun! Miss Gibson & Miss Kurdle

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE

REHEARSALS WILL BE DURING THE SCHOOL DAY

After discussing it further with administration, Mr. Randolph has decided to allow us to rehearse during the school day. The following are the rehearsal dates:


May 4th, 5th, 6th & 7th (Monday-Thursday)


It is important that every child brings their instrument all days of this week, not the typical every other day schedule. Rehearsals will be held during block 3-4 on these days.



The Final Concert is . . .


May 8th in the South HS gymnasium
