Welcome to second semester, everyone! As usual, there are a number of exciting events coming up, each with their associated deadlines. See below for some important reminders. 1. Cheesecake Order Forms - Order forms and payment for the cheesecake fundraiser are due tomorrow, January 31st. Please have all checks made out to BOPA, and be ready to pick up cheesecakes after school on February 13th. 2. Accompanist Music Due - If you are working with a school accompanist on a class A solo this year, your piano part must be turned in to the appropriate box (at the front of the band room) by the end of the day on Thursday. Make sure your name is on it so it gets back to you after the festival. Class B accompaniments will be provided by the school. 3. Volunteer at Solo/Ensemble - Parents: sign up here to volunteer at Solo and Ensemble on February 24th. It's going to be another incredible year with over 550 performances by Middleton High School students alone! We are always in particular need of room monitors. 4. Jazz Cabaret - Congratulations to all jazz ensemble students on a wonderful Jazz Cabaret event! Both shows were well attended, and the groups sounded great. If you have any photos or videos you would like to share, please send a link or photos to MHSBOPAwebsite@gmail.com. 5. Minneapolis Trip Final Payment - Final payments for the Minneapolis Tour are due Friday, February 9th.
