Hello music students and families,
After 2 successful fall concerts things are full-speed ahead as we prepare for our winter concerts as well as band trips and music festivals in the spring.
We have started out first of 2 coffee fundraisers this year with Global Coffee. Students received order forms today in class (more order forms can be found HERE and can sell 1 lb bags of ground or whole bean coffee for $17.50. $5 from every bag sold goes directly into the students fundraising account. Families can also choose to partcipate online by visiting http://www.globalcoffeefundraising.ca/gwmusic .
Order forms and money collected music be in to me no later then December 2nd and coffee will be available for pick up on Wednesday, Dec. 14th.
Grade 10-12 Band Trip
Our grade 10-12 students have been invited to perform and compete at MusicFest Canada, the national competition for high school bands. To be invited is a great honour and we are hoping to take a group of students to Niagara Falls to perform in May. Information about that trip can be found HERE. A non-refundable deposit and the permission form need to be returned to me by Nov. 30th. If you would like to pay online please let me know and I will have it added to your school account. Please do not contact the office about payment.
