October / November 2019

Dance

Dance Team Auditions will be taking place in October. If any students are interested in auditioning for the Dance Team please attend the information meeting on:

October 9 at lunch in the Dance Studio.
The audition will be on October 16 from 3:30-5:30 PM in the Dance Studio.

Please be aware that in order to audition for the dance team students must be enrolled in or already have credits in Dance 15. If you have any questions please contact Ms. McMahon or Ms. Janz

Drama

The Drama Department is off to a busy start with Tech Theatre students already meeting and helping to run the High School Orientation presentation in the theatre. We have an enthusiastic group that is going to do a fantastic job helping to support all of the dance, music, and drama performances from throughout the year. One of the productions that they will play a major hand in, is our drama production, Wedgie by Jason Patrick Rothery. Wedgie is about a group of elementary students waging a resistance against their middle school oppressors, the dreaded 7s. Wedgie will run later in the spring, but auditions will be taking place in early October.

Music

Music students are getting back into the swing of things. We have some new groups, more students and a new room! It all takes getting used but, together, we are all figuring it out. Rehearsals take place according to the following schedule:
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
AM Concert Band Jazz Band 1 Concert Band Jazz band 1 Flex day
Lunch Sectionals take place Monday-Thursday at lunch. The schedule is posted in the music room.

PM Choir Jazz band 2 Flex Choir

All of the groups are working hard and improving and they will be ready for their first performance at the Remembrance Day assembly in November.
