CHANGE OF TIME AND VENUE FOR THE ROMP PERFORMANCE!

Dear SIS families: 12/26/2018
I HATE making changes like this, but this particular change is unavoidable.
I sent a note home earlier about our “ROMP” (“Rotation’s Over Musical Performance”) happening at the end of your student’s music rotation. Well, I’ve had to change the day of the performance to avoid conflicts with the District’s “Together We Can” Family Engagement night occurring on Tuesday, January 17. The good news is: we are also changing the venue from the SIS Cafeteria to the SIS Gymnasium to provide more room for families.  
So - please make the following change to your calendars !

When (new night!) :  Wednesday, January 16th  at 6pm
Where (new place!) : Selah Intermediate School Gymnasium
Who: All students and families of students currently in Mr. Roderick’s Music Class Rotation
Why: Because we want to show you what we have learned!

I apologize if this change causes any conflicts with families’ schedules. Let me know if there are any questions. See you at the Winter ROMP! 
I hope everyone is having a terrific Winter Break.
