We are still in desperate need of all fair shares to be up to date. Believe-it-or-not, we still have bills from marching season that we have not been able to pay due to lack of fair shares being paid. Thank you to all that have made your accounts up to date. Please not that we have charged out the school-owned instrument rental fees of $50 as well. This is needed to be paid ASAP as well so we can pay the instrument repair bill from sending all marching and concert instruments off to get deep cleaned and fixed. Please take care of this now so we can keep proving your child and our awesome students with the best educational experience possible!
This week is a very busy week in the MB&G! While the 2 indoor groups have been competing for a couple weeks, we now kick off the Music Performance Assessment (MPA) season with the FBA Solo & Ensemble MPA at Escambia HS. I have attached the performance schedules for this as well as Jazz and Concert MPA's. For S&E, please make sure you arrive at least 30 minutes to and hour before your performance time so you can check in and warm-up. Also, make sure you dress accordingly for a performance. Something nice and "churchy" is fine. We will have itineraries ready for the other MPA's this week.
Make sure you look at the schedule carefully this week and next week as we have added sectionals and performances coming up as well as a mandatory Trip Chaperone Meeting next week on the 18th.
That is all for now. I hope you have a wonderful week!
