New York City Trip, April 2016

The permission slip may be downloaded and printed at the bottom of this post.

Dear Parents and Students,

On Wednesday, April 13, 2016, the EWG Music Department will travel to New York City to attend a performance of “An American in Paris” at the Palace Theatre.  Tickets for this performance are available on a first come, first served basis, and cost $120.00 each.  This includes bus transportation/driver tip to and from New York, and tickets in the mezzanine level.  Note: this price does NOT include any meals, or souvenirs.

To secure your place on the trip, a deposit of $60 is due starting on TUESDAY, December 1, 2015, but no later than MONDAY, December 14.  You are welcome to pay for the entire trip at once (it certainly makes life easier for us), and may also choose to apply your band/chorus fundraiser money towards this trip.  An up to date list of account balances will be posted on the band and chorus websites shortly.  All checks should be made out to: P.O.P.S.   We prefer that you please send your deposit with students, but you may also mail to: Mr. Gregg Charest, 930 Nooseneck Hill Road, West Greenwich, RI 02817. Remember, first come, first served!

We are in need of 1 chaperone for every 5 students who attend this trip (18 chaperones), so all parents are certainly welcome (and must fill out and pass the district’s background check).  Chaperones should also send a $60.00 deposit at this time.

 If you have financial concerns and require scholarship money, we may be able to help.  Please email Mr. Charest (Gregg_Charest@ewg.k12.ri.us) or Mr. Runner (Ronald_Runner@ewg.k12.ri.us) immediately.  

2015 All-State Audition Schedule

The 2015 All-State Audition Schedule is posted!

Attached below, you'll find the following printable documents: 
    1. Audition Schedule 
    2. Moses Brown Driving directions and campus map.  (The campus map is important because it will help decode the schedule (what building and what room the audition is in.)
    3. Your scoring rubric, which you must fill out in advance of the audition, and hand to the judge as you enter the room.  If you were to lose this rubric on the day of the audition, you would still be allowed to audition, but would need to request another form from the room monitors - it's better to have it ready in advance!

Pie Sale Form

posted Oct 14, 2015, 10:14 AM by Gregg Charest

If you require an extra Pie Sale Form, I've attached one below - feel free to print as many as you need.  The Pie Fundraiser is the ONLY fundraiser this year that directly raises funds for individual student accounts.

Each pie you sell raises $5 to be used towards future band trips.  POPS (Parents of Performing Students) manages the accounts until the money is needed.

PIE FORMS are due back to the school by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16.
