Choir/Strings Musical Updates for Feb 16-19

Thank you so much to out incredible Musical theatre students in Freaky Friday –  Cast, Crew and Pit Band – for an amazing first dress rehearsal on Friday. I am SO proud of this group of kids – socially distant, responsible, hard working, prepared and professional! WOW! I am incredibly lucky that I get to work with such incredible kids and such a supportive and talented teaching partner (Mr. Davis!). Thank you to our amazing choreographer Kanika Jackson and the parents that came to assist back stage and that brought individual snacks for the kids during breaks – it was so appreciated! PLEASE SEE THE LINKS BELOW TO PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS, this is going to be an incredible show and you are guaranteed to have an amazing time watching it from the comfort of your own home! Please help spread the word and get people to buy tickets, this is our only source if income this year, plus we want these kids hard work to be seen by the biggest audience we have potentially ever had!!

Student volunteer shifts run from 8:30am to 2:30pm with final pickup occurring at 3pm.
The online volunteer sign-up can be found here:
Due to COVID-19, and to meet the needs of the Victoria community, The Bottle Depot has instituted a bottle drive service where NO SORTING and NO COUNTING is required.
Instead, The Bottle Depot will provide supplies and our school community will fill as many bags as possible.
All you have to do is drop your contribution in a bin!
Bottle Depot staff will sort and count the donations and will pay 80% of the value to the music program.
PLEASE REMEMBER: All SD61 and Reynolds Secondary protocols around social distancing apply at this event.

Have a great week, stay safe and be kind!
