There has been much going on behind the scenes this last week. Our Diwali Dance was a rousing success with over $2500 raised for band scholarships and to fund our yearly Band retreat where we hire professional musicians to run free workshops for our students.
This Year's Band retreat, which was scheduled for Thursday, November 21st during parent teacher interviews has been postponed. This is due to a conflict with the location as well as the success of this year's grade 6 students, who are learning faster with the new program that has been implemented. The Retreat will happen instead on the Pro-D day of Friday, January 31st from 9-2pm, so please change it on your calendars!
This Friday, Nov. 8th, is band picture day. So please make sure that your student has black socks, black shoes (dress shoes if possible), black pants, and a grey Reimer Band polo shirt (these have arrived and will be handed out on Wednesday during nutbreak/lunch/afterschool). Our Grade 7/8 Band and Reimer Choir will be performing at the Remembrance Day Assembly which runs from 12:30-2:30pm. You are formally invited to take part in our time of remembering.
The grade 6 band interim reports have been sent out, please reply to this email if you have not received yours. Grade 7/8 students will be finishing up their testing on Wednesday and Thursday. Make sure they are practicing!
Our next event is Tuesday, December 17th @7pm at Rick Hansen Secondary's Theatre for our Winter Concert.
Monday, December 16th is a dress rehearsal at Reimer
Grade 6 students from 2:40-3:25pm
Grade 7s from 3:30-4:00pm
Grade 8s from 3:45-4:30pm
Looking forwards to seeing you all then!
