Friday, June 5 – Commencement
Car pool if you can. Parking is always a nightmare for graduation with how many people participate and attend. There will be a shuttle from the park & ride if you want to park further away (and probably have an easier time getting out at the end!) I’ll be at the field by 5:30 if you arrive early.
By 5:45 Report to the Field for a sound check at Martorelli Stadium
7:00PM Ceremony Begins
By 9:00 Done and on your way home
Wearing: black and red uniforms
girls: red blouse, black skirt, solid black tights & character shoes
guys: black shirt, red tie, black dress slacks, black socks & dress shoes
We sit: near the 30 yard line, between the band and platform
(we’re going to try it from the sidelines this year so we don’t have to walk across the field in front of everyone and make them wait on us)
*In the event of rain, we need to be available for a possible 10:00AM, 2:00PM, or 6:00PM Saturday reschedule…or if rain Saturday, possibly 2:00PM Sunday.
SUNDAY, August 16 – Choir Camp
Choir Camp, 1:00-5:00PM in choir room B119
Due to the earlier start for teachers and band camp running up til Saturday, August 15, our only chance to rehearse is on a Sunday. I’ve been given permission to come into the building so we can prepare.
We’ll have food at some point (bring snacks if you’d like). We’ll work on new music for the fall and our performance at open house, as well as go over the beginning schedule for performances. At some point, we’ll head to the middle school auditorium to set up and run through SSB and Alma Mater on the risers in the pit.
Monday, August 17 – Opening Day for Staff
8:00AM Meet in the middle school chorus room
8:45AM Opening Day program begins – we’re 3rd on the agenda, after
