    General Announcements
    1.  Set-Up crews please check in at the Information Table each week.  Check
    the door sign before you set up your room for any new notes on the post-it
    note.  Please see the Information Table if you have any questions or
    problems.  If you need a keyboard for a downstairs room, please go to the
    music office in the north hallway off of the Fellowship Hall.  Upstairs
    keyboards are stored in the storage room next to Room 203.
    2.  Clean-Up crews please check in at the Information Table first.  Also
    please check the back of the door sign for a picture of how to reset the
    room at the end of the day.  The keyboard in Room 102 can stay in there, but
    the rest of the keyboards need to be returned at the end of the day by the
    clean-up crew.  All downstairs keyboards are returned to the music office in
    the north hallway off of the Fellowship Hall.  Upstairs keyboards are stored
    in the storage room next to Room 203.  After your room is restored please
    return the door sign to the Information Table.
    3.  Independent Theory classes are being held at 12:20 and 12:45 in Room
    104, for any student that has a class conflict with their theory class.
    There is no extra charge for this and it is so important that all PSHP get
    both their ensemble class and theory class for all of their classes.  If a
    student is both in a beginner class and an intermediate class, they will
    need to take their beginner theory class at 12:20 or 12:45. Any student that
    is in both Bach and Beethoven orchestra, will need to take their Beethoven
    theory at either 12:20 or 12:45.  Any student that is in Mezzo Choir and
    Bach Orchestra will need to take their Mezzo theory class at 12:20 or 12:45.
    Please see me if you have any questions about this.  On another note, high
    school students in advance classes (not first year Concert Choir students)
    will only take one theory class at 1:45, unless they have a conflict at that
