eNews #3 – 10/15/13

by Charles Laux on October 15, 2013

Thank you for your continued support of the KSU String Project!  Things are going very well and we are liking the progress we are seeing in class.  Please ensure that your child is practicing and reinforcing the techniques they are learning in class.
For parents who have brought in snacks, thank you.  The snack assignments for upcoming weeks are below.
Snack assignments by the week…  
10/20 – Carter, B. Smith, Villefranche
10/27 – Kalejaiye, Careathers, Green
11/3 – Cote, Marks, ??
11/10 – Fortenberry, A. Smith, Sayers
11/17 – Morman,Oberle, Narasapurapu
11/24 – Sherritt, Hawley, Renshaw
If you have not signed up, please contact Mr. Laux.  We still need one more volunteer for 11/3.
For snacks, there are a total of 42 students, and 10 staff.  Each week I will let the three volunteers work out how you would like to do it. In the past the students have had one item such as a small bag of chips, cookies, or fruit snacks.  Store-bought items are best.  Anything is fine and we really appreciate your help!
As part of our concert uniform, we will order really cool KSUSP T-Shirts.  The shirts are $10.  We can accept checks made payable to KSU.  If a student has a t-shirt from a previous year, they will not need a new one (unless they have outgrown it, etc.).  The design will remain the same as last year.  Order forms are attached.  Please be sure to return your order form along with payment no later than this Sunday, October 20.  We need to allow time for the shirts to be ordered/printed in order to have them ready for our concert in December.
