Week of February 11, 2019

There is a lot going on during this short week at school. There is something for each grade level and
each ensemble in this weekly NFTBR.

Message from Mr. Kerr: I am having no after school rehearsals this week, as I have not actually worked with
every ensemble, and I have to hear and see where they are at this point. I do plan on having after school
rehearsals in the near future. They will be on the days listed on the calendar.

Message from Leah King to the seniors that are participating in Senior Thesis on February 24:
