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 –

We sent out an email to trip participants with more information this afternoon. The email includes what to pack , hotel information, spending money suggestions and other helpful tips.

The rehearsal on March 1 really went well. I am very proud of the kids and we had a great meeting with chaperones after that rehearsal. I always enjoy having the opportunity to be with our parents. We have such tremendous people in Lawrence county. It is no mystery why the kids are tremendous too. The rehearsals continue March 5 and March 12 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm and on Friday March 9 after school until 5:10 with clinicians from out-of-town.

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 is still available.

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 March 7 and 8 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!
