IMPORTANT DEADLINES for Fine Arts Night Dec 3

The Fine Arts Night (FAN) concert for ALL students taking music in the fall semester is Thursday, December 3rd. Your child received an informative letter with a detachable parent signature that is due on Tuesday, November 24.

The FAN performance will be the culmination of weeks of preparation for the 8th grade recorder ensembles, as well as 9th grade choir. This is a mandatory performance for all fall semester Music students, and will count as 10% of their semester grade. If they do not attend this concert, they will receive a ZERO. Please confirm that the following is marked on your calendar:

WHEN: Thursday, December 3, 2015. Students need to be checked in to their assigned rooms (TBD) at 5:20pm. The concert will begin at 6:00pm.

WHERE: NPX Building G

IMPORTANT DETAILS: Students must arrive promptly by 5:20 p.m. for a warm-up and dress rehearsal for the concert. They will receive a detention if they are late for their call time. NPX faculty will be on hand to check in the students and monitor the rehearsal, and so we are asking that no parents enter G Building until 5:50PM, just before the concert is to begin.

CONCERT ATTIRE: All students must be dressed in Concert Dress attire as stated on page 53 of the NPX Family Handbook, when they arrive. Boys must be in long sleeve, white, collared dress shirts, with black slacks, black socks, and black shoes. Girls must wear black and/or white, (separates are fine), shoulders must be covered, and black dress shoes (open-toed shoes and reasonable heels are permitted).

Please contact Ms. Harris with additional questions.
