Monday – Substitute Teacher, Day 2 – All sub rules apply. Don’t act a fool.

Optional Knott’s Berry Farm Performances – Marching Band, Jazz Band & Orchestra We have been accepted to take a group of students to perform at Knott’s Berry Farm! This is an “extra” trip and is not required to attend for a grade. In order to attend, students will need to provide their own admission. There are two options for this:

  1. Bring in proof of Knott’s Berry Farm season pass – will be photocopied per request of Knott’s Berry Farm
  2. Purchase a discount ticket through BYEU for $35.00

We will be performing music that will be featured at our Winter Concert as well as some additional songs. Students who attend will miss all day of school.

Substitute Teacher – 10/18 & 10/21

There will be a substitute teacher on Friday, 10/18 and Monday 10/21. Students are expected to be on their absolute best behavior for the substitute teacher both days. Students will be playing in all classes, and leaders will be asked to help run rehearsals. There is zero period on Friday for Jazz Band, but there is no after school rehearsal. Please be patient if the room is not unlocked in the morning or after school–you may ask the custodians to unlock the room to pick up your instruments. Rehearsal plans will be posted in Google Classroom as well as with the substitute teacher
