December 5 (yes…that is NEXT WEEK–Yikes!): Wind Ensemble Concert at the High School
BJH Wind Ensemble students should arrive at the high school at 6:00 PM. We will meet in the cafeteria. The plan is to get about 15 minutes of “on stage” time before the doors open so we can get a feel for the acoustics of the theater and get used to the lighting, etc…Doors will open for the audience at 6:30. Order of the concert is BJH Wind Ensemble, BHS Wind Ensemble, BHS Symphonic Band. The concert should be over by 8:30 (at the latest).
To prepare for next week’s concert, Wind Ensemble will rehearse Wednesday 11/28, Thursday 11/29, Monday 12/3 and Wednesday 12/5 (no rehearsal on Thursday 12/6). All rehearsals begin at 7:05 AM. Please encourage your child to be on time : )

Important Information about the Music Boosters Christmas Tree & Wreath Sale:
From Darlene Escoe, Bake Sale Chair:
Hello Music Boosters,
We have an exciting new idea for our bake sale during the Tree & Wreath sale on Dec. 8th. As requested in the last email, please everyone bake for this sale.
But, if you bake cookies, don’t individually wrap all of them. We will set up a “Cookie Buffet” and customers can choose a variety of cookies that we will sell by the dozen. We are very excited about this and hope to see a variety of cookies; especially delicious Christmas types.
And of course, if cookies aren’t your thing, we need breads, whoopee pies, cakes, whole pies, etc. We just need you to bake.
Also, we still have 2 openings for the 7:30 shift and 1 for the 9:00 shift if you can help out.
From Claudia Brzoza, Tree & Wreath Chair:
We currently have NO volunteers for the 10:00-12:00 shift! If you can volunteer your time, please contact Claudia.
Tree & Wreath volunteers will be outside assisting customers with tree selection, helping to load their purchases onto vehicles if requested, etc… It’s a festive and fun way to spend a couple of hours!!
