HONOR BAND AND CHOIR
Congratulations to Lizzie Lepore and Chris Dyrland-Marquis for making it into the North Central Montana Honor Band and Choir! They will travel to Cut Bank to rehearse December 1st and 2nd with around 100 other "cream-of-the-crop" high school student musicians. The culminating performance will be the evening of Dec. 2nd at Cut Bank High School -- the public is welcome to attend the concert.
A big "congratulations" to Kayla Hoffman (flute) and Chris Dyrland-Marquis (alto sax) for a successful "UM All-Star Wind Ensemble" weekend! They were nominated to participate in this intensive band event hosted by the University of Montana, alongside several hundred other high school students from across the northwest region. They rehearsed some challenging music nearly non-stop over the weekend with UM faculty, guest conductors and composers. Their work culminated in a fantastic performance on Sunday afternoon to a packed-out crowd on the UM campus. Way to go!
CHRISTMAS CONCERT COSTUMES
This year's Christmas Concert (on Thursday, Dec. 18th) will feature some "song and dance" from the animated movie Frozen (yes, the kids are excited -- it is going to be a lot of fun!). We will provide Nordic-style felt vests for all students to go over their concert clothes. Students can wear plain colored turtlenecks or mock-turtlenecks or similar simple Nordic-style clothes. **Your students are welcome to wear Scandinavian heritage costumes as well. Hats or heavy clothes might be too hot on stage. Please contact Mr. Wilson if you have any questions (733-2081, firstname.lastname@example.org).
YEARBOOKS ARE HERE!!
The 2013-2014 yearbooks are now available! Stop by the school office to purchase your copy! Cost of the yearbook is $25.00.
CHRISTMAS CONCERT HELP If you are interested in helping decorate for the Christmas Concert, OR helping move equipment DURING the show (we need a "set crew"!), please contact Mr. Wilson at the school (733-2081, email@example.com).
13th ANNUAL REMEMBRANCE TREES
The holidays are a wonderful time for family and friends. They are also a time for remembering loved ones who are no longer living. The High School Student Council is sponsoring the 13th Annual Remembrance Tree program to honor and celebrate the lives of our loved ones. Christmas trees filled with lights to honor these individuals will be on display in front of the school from November 30 until New Year’s Day.
Bulbs, in memory of friends or loved ones, may be purchased for $5.00. Orders for bulbs must be received by Friday, November 28. A lighting ceremony, in which all community members are invited to attend, is scheduled for Sunday, November 30 at 4:30 P.M. During this ceremony, those who purchase bulbs will be invited to add their bulbs to the tree when the names of their loved ones are read during the ceremony. The lighting of the community Christmas tree will be held in conjunction with the Remembrance Tree ceremony! In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved inside.
Order forms are going out in the mail this week. You may also call the school office to place an order. (733-2081) Proceeds from the Remembrance Trees are used to purchase Christmas gifts for underprivileged children.
Mike Lee, son of Rick and Janet Lee, is marrying Bridget Bruggeman on December 27th in Tell City, Indiana. As a show of love from Highwood, I am planning on mailing a box of wedding cards for Mike and Bridget to open when they open their gifts. If you’d like to send a wedding card and maybe your 2014 family Christmas photo, a box will be set up in the school office. Jayne Plouffe will collect them and get them sent off in time for the big day. The family hopes to have a Montana reception for the couple next summer.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE
The Highwood Community Methodist Church will hold their next Praise and Worship Service Sunday, December 7 at 6:00 P.M. Everyone is invited!
