It has been an exciting last couple weeks with over a hundred grade 5 students coming to visit our band program here at Reimer with more to come next week!
Our Grade 6 students are preparing for their first big concert at the Middle School Honour Band night on Wednesday, May 29th, at the Abby Arts Center 7-8pm (students arrive 6:30-8:30pm). Double check on their practice habits (practicing their warm ups and the song called "Fire's Edge") and sign off on their practice charts as their playing should be starting to resemble actual songs at home.
As a final fundraising push before the finances for the Whistler Trip are due, we are doing a CUPCAKE SALE on Wednesday February 13th at Nutbreak and lunch in the Foyer.
We are also going to be doing our first online silent auction! Lanka Jewels has donated some necklaces and we have a few other items that would make great Valentine's gifts for someone special :) The auction will be live next week ending on February 12th at noon. Look out for the email and feel free to share it with anyone you think would be interested.
Our team of Grade 7/8 Whistler students who will be competing at the festival are starting their additional practices this Friday at lunch and the schedule for after school practices on Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 are as follows:
February 7th, 21st
March 7th, 14th
