Upcoming Events

Updated Calendar! 2011-2012
REQUIRED Performance/Rehearsal Dates –
Put these on your calendar now! Work, Driver’s Ed, and sports practice do not excuse you from these events.  Adjust your schedule accordingly. Let Mrs. Hayek know of any conflicts (such as a dance recital or championship game) ASAP!! For an excused absence, you must make Mrs. Hayek aware of the conflict at LEAST a month ahead of time and make-up the work accordingly.
All dates and times are subject to change, but will most likely be as written.  I will provide PLENTY of notice if any dates or time change.

**All events listed with double stars (**) are, at this point, for the advanced women’s ensemble (Blues in the Knight) only!
