Director’s Newsletter #27-18, March 17, 2019
Good afternoon everyone and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I hope everyone had a great Spring Break and are ready to get back to it. Here are the items covered in this week’s newsletter:
•Percussion Ensemble Concert
•Winter Guard Contest
•Last Day for Snap Codes
Percussion Ensemble Concert
On Thursday evening, please join us as our percussion department will be putting on a percussion ensemble concert in the Brandeis auditorium. The concert will begin at 7 pm and is free to attend.
With Uil just around the corner, music objectives for the Varsity and A2 ensembles are due this Friday during class. Your student is still able to send in video submissions until midnight tonight. However, anything after must be done in a live setting. Please make sure your students makes time to see a director to complete their assignments. I have made appointment slots available on my NISD calendar. If you’d like to schedule your time now, please visit:
Make sure that you are signed into your nisd gmail account to schedule.
We have a few concessions events coming up in the next couple of weeks that we need help with. While students are always welcomed to help, we do need a certain amount of adults to help as well. Please be so kind to volunteer some of your time and sign up to help at any of the scheduled events. To see the schedule and sign up, please visit https://bit.ly/2JmCflI
Winter Guard Contest
Both of our Winter Guard programs will be competing this weekend at the Warren HS Invitational. The contest will be held at the NISD Gym next to Farris Stadium. An agenda for students will be sent out in the next couple of days. However, performance times for each group is listed below in the schedule. Come out and support our Winter Guard programs on Saturday!
Snap Code Registration ASAP
Snap Code registration is needed to confirm registration for the 19-20 school year. If you have yet to do so, please visit https://nisd.net/student-registration and use your SNAP CODE to confirm classes and registration. It is required that ALL STUDENTS returning to Brandeis next year complete this process.
