H. E. L. P.

As of today we have 3 moms serving as dress rehearsal chaperones. We normally have 12 to cover 270 kids. If you can step in and help tomorrow please come at 2:45 to the NMS choir room for a short meeting. This is a very simple job. You pass out treats and water, take attendance, and oversee the kids. They leave at 5:45 and you would be done by or before 6:15. Please help us out. It is very scary to be on stage directing with only 3 parents watching kids in the cafeteria. Thanks in advance.

Emergency Help Needed for Dress Reh and Concert

Please read all of this: We have very few sign ups for Dress Rehearsal and the Concert. I’m not sure what happened. But we need parents to step in now and lend a hand to pull this weekend off! 8th grade parents may need to sit with their kids this show if we don’t get a few chaperones. One of the scariest empty volunteer positions is for the Dinner Crew. We simply can’t feed, oversee, and cleanup after 270 students ourselves. This is a simple job that requires serving dinner and then walking throughout the cafeteria to make sure students remain seated and well behaved. There will be a 6th grade crew of boys assisting in clean up afterwards.

Here are our current needs per grade:

6th 3 Ushers for show 1(meet at auditorium at 3:45 and 3 for show 2 (meet at auditorium at 6:15)

T shirt money and Dinner donations are due.

Right now only 60% of you have turned in the $10 t shirt money. Please pay that as soon as possible. Shirts arrive next Tuesday and we need all of the money turned in by then. We also have to pay for the sub dinners next week. We are about half way there. Every donation helps. Thanks in advance for your generosity. Mrs. A


Just a reminder to please go to signup genius tab on this page and volunteer for a position to help with the Final Blast. We are asking one parent from each home to sign up to lend a hand. Many of the positions can be done from home or on the day of the concert. We know you have busy lives but we need you to help us with the last concert of the year. Try to sign up today or in the next few days so that you will get the position(s) you want. Thanks!

Also do not forget that we need the $10 for t shirts as soon as you can send that in. We just ordered them. They cost $13.50 per shirt but we will cover the extra $3.50 for each studet.

Finally please see if you can send in something for your child’s dinner or the dinners of a few children. We need to raise around $1000 to feed them all.

This year’s Final Blast will be featuring Motown! See how many of these you know already!

ISSMA is coming!!

ISSMA Choir Competition is on the horizon! It will take place Saturday, March 18th! We have 12 school days to finish practicing our selections. We will be singing 3 songs for 3 judges at Goshen Middle School. The event is free and open to the public. We should be getting our exact performance times by Friday. As soon as I have them they will be posted here and sent home in a parent letter with all the details you will need for this event.

As far as volunteers, we are doing fairly well. We need 2 parent chaperones for 7th grade and a photographer for grades 7 and 8.

Bus chaperones will meet their group at the buses 10 minutes before departure. Our students will be leaving from NMS in the front teacher’s parking lot.

Locker Decorations should be dropped off by Monday, March 13.

Photographers should follow us through rehearsal warm ups and into our performance. Pictures should be sent in the following Monday. All parents can send us pictures but it would be nice to have someone who is focused on getting close up shots.

Please remember that all conflict forms are due by Friday, March 3.
