Kiwanis Jazz – Wednesday, February 13 (assuming schools are open and busses are running)

It certainly has been an interesting week so far 😊. Fingers crossed for tomorrow’s weather.

As long as classes are on tomorrow, Junior and Senior Jazz Ensembles will be attending the Vancouver Kiwanis Jazz Festival so please ensure your child arrives in the band room at 8:00am in their uniform with their instrument, music and a bag lunch as we will not have the opportunity to purchase one. We will be traveling by district busses to the  Bethany Baptist Church in Richmond. The email band member parents should have received at about 6:50pm Tuesday evening included another copy of the information letter that went out previously to clarify any other details. We will be back by 2:30pm as our buses are part of the regular school bus schedule.

Please check the district website Wednesday morning for any clarification necessary regarding weather. If for some reason your child is not attending tomorrow, please let me know so I am able to adjust our plans accordingly.

Many Thanks – Mr. Follett

P.S. Members of Senior Wind Ensemble, please remember that regardless of the weather, we have no rehearsal tomorrow before school due to the festival

No Junior Jazz today, February 12

While the district has not yet made a decision regarding school today, the snow is still falling here and I would rather ere on the side of safety. As such, I am cancelling our Junior Jazz rehearsal for this morning to give more time for roads to be plowed before anyone makes the trek to school. Please check the SD35 website and social media for the district’s call for the rest of the day.

REGARDING TOMORROW’S FESTIVAL IN RICHMOND: Please assume that we are still on for the Kiwanis Jazz Festival tomorrow, but I will email and post to social media and  www.dwpoppymusic.comregarding tomorrow’s participation as soon as I have more information.

  1. If your child hasn’t dropped off their permission form, today during the day or tomorrow morning will be fine
  2. I am still looking for one or two more chaperones so if you are available to join us, please let me know.

Many thanks and please share this to other members of the band
