The Annual Butter Braid Sale –

The Butter Braid sale has come to an end and it was a great success. A big thank you goes out to all that participated. This sale was the biggest butter braid sale we have ever had. The butter braids are set to be delivered on Thursday, March 15. There is also a chance for sellers to earn a $1000 scholarship this year and buyers to win an all expense paid trip to Disney. The money will be collected when the product is delivered and should be turned in by March 26.

Fine Arts Festival April 17, 7th Grade Concert moved to May 10 –

The NLCS Fine Arts Festival has been set for April 16 – 19. The 6th Grade Band will be performing on April 17th at the PAC. The 17th was originally set for the 7th grade concert last spring. We will now move the 7th Grade Concert to May 10th to avoid this conflict.

Washington D.C. Update –

I received a copy of our final itinerary this week and it looks great. People going on the trip should watch for an email with final information to arrive next week. The band will start rehearsals next Thursday (March 1). That rehearsal will be from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm in the band building. We will also rehearse March 5 and March 12 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm and on Friday March 9 after school with clinicians from out-of-town.

Band parents going on the trip as chaperones will meet March 1 at 8:00 pm after the rehearsal in the band building to go over trip details and plans. Most trips don’t have chaperone meetings, but I think it is important for us to do this. There will be a final meeting for everyone going on the trip on March 12 at 8:00 pm after the March 12th rehearsal in the auditorium.

The Papa Johns Pizza Cards are still available for students to sell. The kids raise $7 for the trip with each card sold. The Practice-a-Thon Pledge information was passed out today to a few students interested in participating.

After School Lessons –

Free lessons are available most days after school until 3:30 each day. Students need to let me know during class that they will be staying and have made arrangements to leave at 3:30. I’ve had several students take advantage of the help. Washington D.C. students should make sure to stay and work on the pieces they are performing at the Navy Memorial. I will be available on Feb. 29, and March 2 next week. We do have a few that aren’t prepared as well as they should be. Keep in mind that students need to be able to perform the music and have a A in conduct for band to participate in the Washington D.C. trip.

Have a great week!
