Dear Eagle Ridge families,
As you know, our ninth annual Spring Evening of the Arts is on Wednesday, June 12th at 6:30 in the school gymnasium. It will be a wonderful evening celebrating the arts at Eagle Ridge with performances by the senior band, junior band, jazz band, bell choir, boomwhacker club, recorder club, dance crew, and student soloists. Student art will be displayed for your viewing pleasure as well.
There is no "cost of admission" for this concert. However, we would like to invite you to make a donation to the school's arts fund if you would like to do so. In the last couple of years, we have purchased 40 bells, 30 boomwhackers, 25 ukuleles, a piccolo, and a xylophone....and a partridge in a pear tree:) Mr. Martin longs to purchase a baritone saxophone and bassoon for the school to enrich the variety in the instrumental program. Also, as our school nears its ten-year anniversary, some of the instruments in our current fleet will need to be slowly replaced in the coming years.
It is an important school initiative to support arts funding, however it is very difficult to divert money from other areas where it is already spread so thin. Any support you are able to provide via a donation at the spring concert (or at any time of the year!) would be gratefully accepted and sincerely appreciated. There will be a box for admission donations at the gym's entrance. We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday!
