Dear Parents and Students,

       We are halfway to March, and with it comes Music in the Schools Month. With that in mind, it is also time for our 5th annual Fine Arts Gala! This year the theme is Music Through the Decades! Here are some important items to add to your calendars regarding the Gala.

       There will be a mandatory dress rehearsal for all 5th-12th choir members on Wednesday, March 8th from 3:15pm-5:30pm in the H.S. Gym. This is an important part of the performance as there are many transitions that will need to work through with both vocal and instrumental ensembles. On Thursday, March 9th, call time for students will be 6:15pm. This performance is also mandatory.

     Dress for Gentlemen will be: solid, brightly colored button down/polo shirt or sweater, black pants, black belt, and dress shoes. Dress for Ladies will be: solid, brightly colored blouse or sweater, black skirt (covering the knee) or slacks, and dress shoes.

     This year we are offering the opportunity for advanced seating. There are a total of 128 seats available at tables, which gives you a chance to have some of the best seats in the house. Tickets for these seats will be available beginning February 13th in both the elementary and secondary offices for a donation of $10 each. Complimentary seating will also be available both sections of bleachers.

     When students are finished performing their selections, they will be asked to sit with parents and stay for the entire performance. We also ask that students do not sit with a group of friends by themselves. This is out of respect for those performing. If you choose to buy reserved seating at a table, please inform the secretary of how many children you have performing in the Gala, as we will just add a specific number of extra folding chairs to your table for them to use.

     We are in need of parent volunteers in multiple areas: Set Up Crew on Tuesday, March 7th at 7:30 pm and Tear Down Crew, Parental Supervision in Classrooms before the Performance, and Donated Baked Goods for the Silent Auction. We are also asking you to consider donating a few Easter basket items by February 27th so we can make our Easter Basket Sale another huge success this year! Please drop off donations in the Choir Room! J

   Thank you for all of your prayers and support. If you would like to volunteer, please email me at zentz.heidi@mcsflames.org to let me know in what capacity you would be able to help us. Thank you again for the privilege of teaching your incredible children! J We’re looking forward to a marvelous night of music-making for the glory of God!
