6-8 Solo/Ensemble Contest Postponed

posted Jan 28, 2019, 7:43 AM by Tyler Morgan   [ updated Jan 28, 2019, 7:44 AM ]

        With all of the bad weather and missed school we have had over the past few weeks, we have decided to postpone the 6-8 Solo Contest that was schedule for Saturday, February 2nd. We believe that if we were to keep the contest on its original date, we would be putting many students into a situation where they would not be successful, creating a bad experience for many. We will also be cancelling all remaining 6th grade after school practices until we find a makeup date for the contest.

We believe that the process of preparing and performing a solo is a valuable learning experience for each student. For this reason, we will be looking at several different options for rescheduling the contest. We realize that by rescheduling something like this mid-year that there may be unavoidable conflicts for some families. We will do our best to accommodate as many students as possible.
