Congratulations to all of our Platt Performing Arts Students and their contribution to our department throughout the year!
Thanks to the parents, friends and students that attended the awards ceremony on Friday night.
We had a great trip to Virginia Beach. The band members received an award of "Excellent" and 2nd Place in the Concert Band category. Congratulations go to them and the chorus members that received the same ratings. All should be very proud of their work!
Taco Night was a great success! Thanks to all who came out to support the Performing Arts at Platt!!!
It looked like people were having a good time and I was glad to see so many students there helping out.
Kudos go to those of you who were here right after school and worked until we closed up close to 9:00pm! That's a long day and true dedication!
Now - on to our MATTRESS DAY Fundraiser! Spread the word and hand out those flyers.
We have a home game this Friday where we will add our Movement One marching and playing on the field. We will again need parent assistance for our pit and our stars! Please email me if you are able to help us out. Even if you think I already know you will be there. Sometimes I forget who can be there for each specific event and an email would be greatly appreciated!
An email update was sent to all parents and students of the marching band about our UMASS Band Day performance this weekend. If you did not receive this email, please check your contact information in Charms and contact me so that I can send it to you directly.
Remember, we use the email database generated in Charms to communicate with students and parents. If you have not updated your information you will not receive our emails regarding important dates and information.
