SCHS Music Notes
November 11, 2019
Thank You Veterans and to all of our Fall Concert Patrons and Volunteers!
Thank You to all who came to our concert this past friday Honoring these brave people. I think you'll agree that it was not only a wonderful tribute, but also a testament to the exceptional talent, hard work, and leadership of our young musicians. I am beyond proud of how these students performed and carried themselves that evening.
Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the kids fed, safe (and silent) backstage, and to our ticket takers who helped us roll out a new will call system to accompany online ticket purchases. Without you, our night would have not gone nearly as smoothly.
I can only look forward now to what potential the remainder of the year carries for us! Nearly a month away now, we've got our Winter Concert and the much anticipated Annual Silent Auction!
Matilda Pit Auditions are Tomorrow!
Our Next Parent Meeting is TOMORROW NIGHT at Pizza Port Bressi Ranch!

Interested in helping us with our Silent Auction Efforts?
Regardless of whether or not you choose to bid on our baskets, there are other things you can do to help our cause!
- Donate Craft Beer for our Craft Beer baskets or 90+ point Wine (look for 5 cent wine sales) for our Wine basket. Check out these suggested wines and beers!
- If you can, join Heather Gertzki and the wonderful members of the Silent Auction committee to help us put on a great show and fundraiser! If you are interested, please be sure to email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Even if you are unable to join our Silent Auction committee, or to donate something yourself, you can still be of GREAT Help by simply printing a few copies of the letter below and giving them to local businesses (asking for donated items and experiences for our Silent Auction). This is as simple as bringing them to your already planned family dinners and outings and offering them to establishment managers and owners.
