I hope you had a great first week back at Reynolds! Thank you for a great start up to our classes, especially musical theatre students for their hard work in bringing Silent Auction items and learning a whole bunch of new material for our show. Keep working hard and ensure that you are at all of our rehearsals so you don’t miss out on anything new! I will do my best to update you, but sometimes the schedules change and you have to be flexible when working with such a large group.
Pending any weather madness, we are back to our schedules as per usual which means early morning choir and strings and all after school and lunch rehearsals as per usual. Make sure you are coming to school with your instruments and folders and we will get to work on all new music, exciting!
