Candlelight Dinner update

Congratulations to Sheila, Francis, the Candlelight Dinner committee,  band students, and all the band parents involved.  Your hard work and positive approach to this event inspired excitement and wonderful results.  Thank you to all the parents and band members who helped me with the loading, unloading, and setup of instruments to and from KISH.
It was a great evening of celebrating with music, food, and friendship.  The band members came together and bonded as an inclusive group.  There is no other group in school where you see grade 8 to 12 students come together, work as a team, and do it over the span of a school year.  It is a unique aesthetic experience of music, travel, and performance.
Next for the band is band trip to Halifax for the Atlantic Festival of Music April 25-27.
Well done everyone involved.

Candlelight Dinner Ticket Sale Contest . . .

CHANCE TO DOUBLE YOUR TICKET SALES!!!!

Hey gang…with the final days of the ticket sales for the Candlelight Dinner upon us….we wanted to offer an opportunity like no other!!!

Again this year, we will be offering the credit for Ms. Profit’s tickets sales to the top seller.  On top of that….we will be entering the names of all of the students who sold 5+ tickets overall into a draw for a chance to double their credits!  That’s right folks….if you sell 5 tickets and your name is drawn…you will be credited for 10 if you sell 10…you will be credited for 20.  It doesn’t get any easier than that!  Based on previous years, that would be a minimum of $150 extra credits….that’s like 10 hours of grocery bagging you WON’T have to do!!!!!  Could it get any better???

I will remind everyone one last time that the cut off for ticket sales at the Scotiabank is Tuesday, Feb 20th.  If anyone is having trouble getting their tickets purchased….please let me know and I will make the arrangements to have the tickets delivered wherever you need them to be.  Let’s put this final push on and get to the 200!  As a group…we can do it!!!

 Thanks

KISH BPA
