The Jr High will be having their 1st Semester Awards assembly on January 12th from 2:23- 2:50pm. We will be honoring our students for their accomplishments in the academics and in sports. Parents and other family members are welcome to join us celebrate with the students. 

DLR Play Auditions for the play "The Pitch" will be on Monday, December 18th from 3-5pm in the Little Theater.  Please attend if you plan to audition, because there is only ONE day of auditions.  If you are NOT auditioning for a part on stage and only want to be backstage or in production, come get a form from Ms. Leamanczyk to fill out and you need not attend auditions. The play performance will be held at Pinecrest on March 1, March 2, and March 3, 2018.  Watch the website as we get closer to these dates for ticket sales. Once they go up for sale they go fast. 

Sat February 3rd –Rt. 72 Solo/Ensemble Contest at Oregon HS

We will be hosting the Jr high solo and ensemble contest in February. We will need A LOT OF HELP from students and especially parents: door monitors, concessions, ticket takers/sellers, etc! If you are willing to help, please let Mr. Beske and me know! Additionally students signed up for solos/ensembles before Thanksgiving and have been meeting with me since then.  Please ensure they are practicing! Music needs to be memorized for this event! I have also made practice recordings so they may practice with my help anywhere—those recordings may be found on the choir website:

Sat. March 17th—IGSMA Organizational Contest at West Middle School in Rockford, IL

We had an overwhelming number of “yes’s” from both our survey and in-class vote. Please mark your calendars for Sat March 17 as we will need everyone from our choir there! If your student cannot be there that day, please let me know ASAP so we may plan accordingly! We are also very fortunate that our contest site is so close.  I will be requesting an afternoon time (likely around 1:00p) based on the information from the survey. As soon as we get information, I will let you know the exact schedule.
