eNote – February 26



February 26, 2021


Good afternoon, POTP!

We have updated the WEEKLY SCHEDULE and online calendar for the next two weeks.

  • We have two final after-school rehearsals before MPA.  They are REQUIRED and VERY IMPORTANT!
  • MPA is Saturday, March 13.  It is a required performance for our instrumental students.  Details below.

HCS is offering an excused absence and virtual learning day on Thursday, March 4.  WE WILL HOLD IN-PERSON REHEARSALS during our regular-scheduled classes on Thursday.  Those are VERY IMPORTANT 90-minute rehearsals.  It is IMPORTANT that students attend these rehearsals in-person as we make our final preparations for MPA.  Students electing to e-learn on March 4 are encouraged to attend the rehearsal in-person and will be allowed to return to e-Learning after their rehearsal.  Both Mr. Adams and I plan to be in attendance leading rehearsals on Thursday, March 4.

Our Music Performance Assessment event will be held here at Spain Park High School on Saturday, March 13.  We will break the event into a series of mini-concerts to allow for social distancing for our students, families and friends.  Each performance will be professionally recorded and submitted digitally for evaluation.  Students will only attend and perform in their assigned concert.  This performance is REQUIRED for all in-person and hybrid students.  There will be alternate assignments created for our full-time virtual students unable to perform in-person at this time.  Here is a the day’s schedule:

3/13 @ SPHS Music Performance Assessment
