It's baaaaack! Sorry for the weeks without announcements. Here we go:
I have been able to order more poinsettias. If you would like to sell more, please take an order form from the top of the cubbies and bring it in with your money. We will order at least 100 more, probably 150, so get selling.

WINTERSONG WORK PARTIES
It's time! This weekend we will paint 6 houses, sew a bunch of aprons, do a bunch of crafts, decorate, and get as many things ready for Wintersong as we can. Sign up on the board if you're planning to attend one or both days.
BIG BONE SINGERS
This year, Lincoln is the home team for the Big Bone Game, which will be held on Thanksgiving Day here at Lincoln. We will be responsible for the performance of the National Anthem in addition to our Lincoln Hymn. Any student interested in singing may perform.
All rehearsals are mandatory: Wed. 11/20, Friday, 11/22, Mon. 11/25 and Tue 11/26 at lunch. Students who miss a rehearsal will not be allowed to perform.
More information is available on the BBS page on my website: 2019 Big Bone Singers
Our second payment of $200 is due November 27. You can pay in the following ways:
-Check (payable to LIncoln High School)
-PayPal (to avoid fees, use the "send money" option for firstname.lastname@example.org)
We have a whopping 66 students going on tour! This includes all students who issued a written response and/or paid their deposit. For those who did not, you have been added to the wait list; if students drop out or are unable to go, I will add you at that point.
Stay tuned for rehearsal and schedule details; we will be rehearsing before school goes on Winter Break.
If you miss a quiz, they can be made up on advisory days. You can make them up at brunch, advisory or lunch. Quizzes cannot be made up during class.
Because of Performing Arts Day on Friday, we missed a listening. We will make that up on Monday.
Missed a listening? Visit the listening page to hear the piece you missed. Your absence from class is not a reason to not complete a listening assignment and be ready for peer edits. If you need to verify specifics of what you heard, check with a classmate or with me at brunch or lunch.
THIS WEEK'S HOMEWORK
This week's homework is our next unit in music history: the Baroque. Pick up the handout on Monday; the Classmarker assignment can be completed in class.
WINTER CONCERT POSTPONED
The performance has been postponed to December. Details will follow on Tuesday and this website will be updated to reflect new details.
