Proficiencies Graded – Students Please Read

Proficiency 4 is now graded. Since I just now posted this grade, I will give you until 8am on Monday to resubmit if you want to try for a better score.

Due to the overflow of late work this trimester, I have decided NOT TO ACCEPT ANY LATE WORK for the next Playing Proficiency. My time needs to be spent better planning and preparing for our rehearsals, not digging around for late work. The next proficiency is due Monday, December 1st. Please be responsible and plan accordingly.

Parents, a note from Kevin Egan, the West Linn Director: We have a very nice Performing Arts Center. The public is welcome and the Festival is FREE to the public.

Unfortunately, we do not have good parking. Please let parents know that they might have to walk a bit because of the lack of parking. It opens up A LOT after school gets out at 3:15. It’s also chaos from 3:15-3:30 on the streets surrounding the high school. Please have your parents avoid arriving during this time slot. They will be happier (and safer!).

There will be light concessions if your kids get hungry. Candy, water, etc. All proceeds go back to the music dept.
