Hope your summers are coming to a close safely and you are looking forward to the start of the 2010 school year. Our Trip to Florida will be here before we know it. On the topic of Florida here are some reminders for you to think about. First off the SYF Road scholarship is available for any student to apply for but the MUST be NOMINATED by a parent, grandparent, teacher etc. AGAIN THEY MUST BE NOMINATED they cannot just apply for it. The first of three deadlines that the students will be able to participate in is fast approaching. Please See the information on the Florida 2011 page here on our website for instructions on nominating your student. The three deadlines are as follows:
The February date will not be available as you must allow 2 months for the funds to become available to you and that will put us beyond our trip date.
Secondly, Please watch the website over the course of the next week or so as we will be doing a fund raiser for the Florida trip that will only be active for a week. We will be doing an event called Bessie bingo where we will sell patches of land that will be mapped out and then we will release a cow and where she does her business, that person wins the grand prize. Information regarding this will be released within the next week.
Lastly we are still taking registrations for the trip and will be doing so up through the month of October. Please bear in mind that the longer you wait the more stress it places on making payments. Please consider allowing your students to participate in this great opportunity to perform and learn in one of the most world renowned performing venues.
In closing Mr. Oyer and I would like to thank those parents who were able to volunteer to help with the concession stand at the Champaign County Fair on Friday. Those parents will see money appear in their students trip account. More Opportunities will be coming available as school begins!
Mr. Ruhlen and Mr. Oyer
