    MNSOTA Tier 1 Orchestra Festival
     
    On Thursday, February 9, the 8th Grader Orchestra will perform for the MNSOTA Tier 1 Orchestra Festival at St. Croix Preparatory in Stillwater. If possible, Ms. Spargo would like the Orchestra students to arrive at Edgewood at 7:15 a.m. so she can have a brief rehearsal and leave promptly when the bus arrives. Students will leave at 8:00 a.m. and arrive back around 12:45 p.m. Since this will interfere with the regular lunch schedule, all students attending the field trip will need to bring money to eat lunch at Subway or bring a bagged lunch. Although the performance is not open to the public, 2-3 parents may attend as a chaperone. If you can help out, please mark your interested on the permission form. Permission forms are due by Thursday, February 3.  You can find a copy of the form here.
