This weekend is our first of two trips out to Homestead High School. Since our performance time is so early we will not be rehearsing on Saturday morning. Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks!
Here are the tentative itineraries for the next three weekends: Homestead, Open Class Invitational at Homestead, and Regionals at Lafayette Jefferson. Again, these itineraries are tentative, but times should not be altered too much (if any).
This Saturday we will be staying at Whitko and working on building and designing the props we need for the show. Please find the attached information regarding this day. Thanks!
If you need to make a late photo order your last day is tomorrow. You can still order after tomorrow but your photos will arrive much later. Please get them to me before I leave for the middle school tomorrow afternoon. Thanks!
Here is the finalized itinerary for this weekend. We will be doing pictures before the homecoming game, and call time for that is 5:00 in uniform. Call time on Saturday is 12:00 noon, so enjoy a little extra sleep! Please ask if you have questions!
This Wednesday evening is parent teacher conferences at the middle school, so we will unfortunately have to cancel evening rehearsal again this week. Enjoy the evening off! I've also attached a tentative itinerary for DeKalb this weekend. Look for a finalized itinerary on Wednesday.
Great job to all the kids on yesterday's first show, and thanks to all the parents and staff who helped out both yesterday and this past week in my absence. I'll say it again, you all have shown me why Whitko is a fantastic place to work!!
Here is our finalized competition schedule for the year. Based on our available budget these are the shows we'll be attending. The ISSMA shows are qualifiers, meaning if we don't qualify at one round we won't perform at the next. We will be taking one weekend off between DeKalb and Homestead. We'll be doing a prop-making day that day for all who want to help (more info to follow on that).
Thank you all for the kind words you have sent regarding my father in law. I have passed all of them on to my wife and her family and they are deeply grateful. You have truly shown me why Whitko is a great place to work! I will be back for the Bluffton show on Saturday but I will not be at school Thursday or Friday. Please still plan on rehearsals at 7:00 AM the next two days, that will not change. Mr. Rhoades and Mrs. Leppek have been kind enough to offer their help and be with the kids from 7:00 to 8:00 when my substitute shows up. Thanks also to Malarie and Nikki for running rehearsals in my absence!
Here is the finalized Bluffton itinerary. Times have not changed from the preliminary itinerary. Unfortunately I do not have digital copies of the extra information such as admission cost, concessions menu, and things like that. That information is on my desk at school and I am unable to access it from home. If you have questions try to ask an upperclass student and/or parent.
