We cheered on the 8th grade girls basketball team on January 28th. We will be playing at one more game this season on Tuesday, February 25th as the Warriors host Genoa. We hope that you will come out and help us cheer on our Warriors! I will be sending home a note soon about payment for our Six Flags trip which is scheduled for Friday, May 8th. We are also looking for chaperones for our trip. If you are interested please send me an email or return the bottom portion of the note that will be sent home the first week of February.
Some students are also starting to prepare for Marengo’s 5th annual solo and ensemble contest. We will provide the activity bus every Monday starting February 24th in order for students to practice together with their partners and also receive feedback from myself. Solo and ensemble contest is scheduled for Saturday, April 4th.
I will be sending home more information soon! If you have any questions about any upcoming events please call Mrs. Johnson at 815-568-5720 ext. 118 or email her at email@example.com. Thank you to all who support our music program! ~ Mrs. Johnson
