From Mr. Haag:
The next big event is the OMEA Solo & Ensemble contest that we are hosting here at KMS on Saturday 23 FEB. We have 305 entries representing over 500 students and about 200-300 parents/family members coming from South Kitsap, Mason County, Bainbridge Island and all points in between. We need help running the event.
We have 12 judges hired, Ted Brown Music will be here for repairs, and the Navy Band Northwest Woodwind Quintet will be performing a noontime concert in the library. We need to have parents help supervise as door guards for the adjudication rooms and supervisors for the aux gym/commons area, library, and setup/cleanup crews. It will be the largest musical event happening in Kitsap County that day.
[Here is] a digital copy of the JOB SIGNUP SHEETS I showed students in classes yesterday. Some students and parents have already signed up. These are the blank sheets so you can see what and where the need is. If you are able and willing please reply to me via email. Thanks!
An updated schedule of when students are playing is here KMS & KHS SCHEDULE 2019 . Students who help out will receive extra credit, and we will be feeding all parent and student helpers free pizza and snacks for lunch that day.
Below is a link to the Signup Genius for the upcoming Viking Jazz Fest that our Jazz Band will be taking part in on Thursday, Jan 31st.
“First concert is Monday 05 NOV 7pm at KMS. Students are working hard in all bands to share what they are learning and have accomplished this fall quarter. We look forward to seeing you there.” – Mr. Haag
