Senior Dance Team Parent Meeting - or any parents from any team that are available and I haven't met with yet!

The Senior Hip Hop Team will have their parent meeting for Armstrong on Monday March 2 at 4:30 - right after their practice. It won't take long.

The BBoys will probably have their parent meeting after their practice on March 11 at 4:30.

I do not know when the juniors are planning to have their meeting - but you are welcome to come to either of the above parent meetings.

Again - students will not be allowed to go on the trip if a parent or guardian has not attended a parent meeting.

If you have already attended a parent meeting - then you do not need to come again!

See you soon!!

Parent Meeting

Here is the parent plan:

I will hold another parent meeting for the parents who were not able to attend the first meeting. If your parents do not attend, you will not be able to go on the trip to Armstrong. If it turns out that there are quite a few people who are cut from the Armstrong trip, the entire trip will be canceled.

If you have a preference to meeting times - please leave me a comment or send me an e-mail.

I would be willing to do one meeting for each team after a team practice - but I will not meet individually with each of the 51 parents - please think about the time and effort that is put into this event - by all.

Semester 2 Week 3 Dances!

Block E - Every Man I Fall For
