One more week to go! We have made $10,922 so far of our $25K goal. Get going! Harmonics: A reminder that 100% of the monies made will go directly to your tour account!
See's orders will arrive on Tuesday; you can pick yours up after school that day.
THIS WEEK'S HOMEWORK
This week's homework is on scales/solfege (yes, again—it seems we didn't all understand it last time). Get the assignment done before this week's quiz and your class will automatically get 2 XCR points!
Rehearsals this week are as follows:
Monday, 2/10: Finish solo auditions
Wednesday, 2/12: Rehearsal, advisory/lunch
Saturday, 2/15: Rehearsal and parent performance, 1-5 pm
Our Saturday rehearsal will end with a performance for your parents! The performance will begin at 4:15 pm; be sure to invite them!
BLOG PEER EDIT
Our next blog edit is this Friday! As soon as we're done with yearbook pictures, we will begin. Be sure to have your blog ready to go. If you are missing any listening assignments, please go to the listening page to make it up.
Speaking of blogs: the first peer edit of the semester was erroneously scored at 47 points when it should have been worth 40 points. Scores have now been adjusted in the gradebook.
We will take our ensemble photos for the yearbook on Friday during class. Please bring your performance attire with you; no performance attire, no picture for you. You will have a few minutes to change at the beginning of the period before we take the photo, and then you'll change into your street clothes again. Women, you do not have to put your hair up, but red lipstick must be worn! All students: we *do* see your feet, so please bring your black socks/tights/shoes.
The concert is just around the corner, and it's time to order shirts! Please fill out this form by Wednesday, 2/12: tinyurl.com/singshirts
GRADE FIX FORM
Grades have been updated (it's my new semester resolution) and are now calculating. If something is wrong with your grade, please fill this form out: tinyurl.com/gradefixes. You'll receive an email when I've addressed your concern. It is never too late to fix an incorrect grade.
Remember, I only work on grades on Wednesdays and Sundays, so do not expect an instant update. Please allow a week for the update to reflect.
TIME TO RESET
We have earned every bit of the break that is coming our way next week! I hope you'll take some time to study your music for "Sing" but more than that, to rest and relax. We all need it!
