Week of February 13th

REMINDER Final TRIP Payment due no later than Thursday, February 16th prior to midnight.  The payment site will not be available on Friday, February 17th.

Looking for something inexpensive but incredibly entertaining to do for Valentine’s Day?  Come to the Lincoln East Orchestra’s Finale Concert!  This is always a fantastic show.  We have band kids that also play in the orchestra, and many of our Wind Symphony students will be joining the orchestra for the second half of the performance.

Take the night off from cooking this Thursday and join us in the cafeteria for Tri-M’s Third Annual Souper Bowl Solo & Ensemble Night!  Enjoy some soup, and support our students as they preview the pieces they will be playing at the District Solo & Ensemble Contest this Saturday at Northstar High School.  The evening begins at 5:30PM, and will wrap up at 7:30PM. The cost is $5.00, with kids 12 and under eating free.

Trip Note:  This will be reiterated in future trip communications, but we wanted to let you know ASAP about a miscommunication during the meeting with our travel agent on February 2.  It was announced that several meals would be at the student’s own expense.  THE ONLY MEALS THAT ARE NOT INCLUDED ARE ON TRAVEL DAYS–SATURDAY, MARCH 11 AND WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15.  The evening meal on Tuesday will be at a professional sporting event, so please note that the $15 meal allowance will probably not cover what your student may want to eat!  Encourage them to save some of their spending money for that meal.
