Butter Braid Fundraiser Due

Please get Butter Braid orders in as soon as possible. The last day to turn them in will be this Friday (Dec. 1).  Don't forget that students (or their parents) must pick up their order after school on Thurs. Dec. 14th between 3:30-5:30 pm.  Students orders will be bundled and packaged together, so it is not possible to sort out individual customer items.

Final Spaghetti Supper Reminders

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday for the Spaghetti Supper!  Please refer to the earlier blog post regarding the rehearsal schedule for the afternoon.  Two more things to add:

1.  Cello players MUST bring their instruments from home!

2.  Everyone should bring a folding stand for the rehearsal (all black stands will be on stage).

ILMEA Information

Please see the attached documents with some preliminary information for students who are participating in the ILMEA District 3 orchestra.  Even though Olivet has said they will provide stands for students, we are still asking students to bring a folding stand.  Dress for the concert will be "nice clothes" (no jeans, tennis shoes, etc. - "shirt and tie" is about the appropriate level).  Bus leaves NCHS at 6 am - plan on being 10 minutes early!!!!
