YO Notes 4.17.17

YO You ROCK!!!!

Really good rehearsal on Monday. We're getting lots of positive feedback from parents and staff...everyone is really impressed with your sound, intonation, etc. I'm so proud of all of you and how hard you're working. It's paying off!!! Woo Hoo!!!

This is the time for the final push to the concert. You guys know how important it is to work for a strong finish...it is when we're the most tired that we must dig deeper to meet our goal successfully. Let's do this thing!!!

I sincerely wish I would have recorded the very first day of Lock In last August. You would be amazed at the difference. You have come so far and it's such an honor to work with each and everyone of you. Thank you so much for an incredible year. You are the best!!

A couple of reminders: If you haven't turned in Raffle tix, you need to do so by tomorrow.

Also, I want to thank the students who auditioned for O Magnum. (-: It was a tough decision but after talking with Mr. Hill and Ms. Maniaci, it was decided that Bella Twocrow will be our narrator. Congrats Bella.
