Hi, hey, hello!
For those of us that attended the BOA St. Louis Super Regional on Saturday, I hope it was a rewarding experience! Seeing those groups live is always a joy - so many amazing things happen in the marching arts that not everyone is able to witness. I do hope it was worth it!
Butter Braid Fundraiser
This fundraiser began last week! Students should have received order forms, but there are more underneath the white board in the auditorium and you can always sell via online as well! The person who sells the most butter braids will be excused from the 2nd quarter playing test!
Optional Movie Night
This evening will be NEXT MONDAY, Oct. 28 immediately following the Halloween parade rehearsal. The movie we will be watching is Back to the Future. Please bring your own snacks and drinks, although popcorn will be provided!
The Halloween Parade is NEXT TUESDAY. Costumes are required - just ensure that they don't interfere with what you are doing: playing your instrument or spinning! We will meet at CM at 5:30pm, be bussed over to the Bank of Edwardsville and march down Prairie St.. The buses will pick us up at the end of the parade and drive us back to CM, where will vote on best individual costume and best duo/group costume!
Jazz band is an optional, extra-curricular ensemble that we offer at Civic Memorial HS. If you are interested in jazz band, please click on THIS LINK and let me know what times work for you. I've used my schedule to fill in these times, and they are pretty limited. If you have a conflict with these times and still would like to participate, please come talk to me and we will try to work something out.
Please continue talking about this fundraiser! Word of mouth is the best way for us to advertise it!
