Important Bonfire Information / Letter from Mrs. Kipp

Dear chorus families,
This e-mail will update you on the events / deadlines that are coming up in the next few weeks.
Our bonfire is scheduled for Saturday evening (10/20) at the Scott fire circle.  There is an attached list of what students need to bring, if they signed up to come. Unfortunately, it is calling for RAIN.  In the event that it is RAINING at 5 pm the bonfire will be called off.  Unfortunately, there are not dates available after this weekend.  If the weather is nice chorus students can still “sign up.”  Just have them bring either a pack of hot dogs and rolls or 6 large candy bars.
The deadline for the second NYC payment is today (Friday).  Each payment is $115.  Please turn them in as soon as possible as we have a $4,000 payment this month to cover the cost of our show, “Waitress.”
Students have a deadline to turn in their performance apparel of November 2nd.
