Hello PSHP Families,
We are looking forward to our second Friday and getting more into a routine!
Students may go directly to their classrooms this week. If anyone ever has
any questions or problems, please ask the ladies at the Information Table,
which is in the first hallway as you enter the east doors, before you get to
the Fellowship Hall.
The Orchestra classes, except Beginner Orchestra classes, will have optional
chair auditions during their class time this week. This is great for
students that want a leadership role in their orchestra class. All violins
will need to decide if they want to be a first violin part (usually has
melody parts) or a second violin part (usually has harmony parts) and sign
up in class tomorrow. I had put this into Gibbon Sunday night, but I don’t
think I entered it correctly to email to everyone.
* Intermediate Orchestra: EE Book 1, p. 24 #87, #88
* Bach Orchestra, ARAW Unit 14 and High Tech Book, p. 14, #10
* Beethoven Orchestra: Essentials for Strings, p. 36, #1 and #2 for
DM scale, Sounds of Celebration, Book 1, I Love You Lord. Practice
whichever part you are trying out for. I violins=solo part, II violins=top
part of violin ensemble part.
* Remember to bring your pencil for both your music stand or folder,
as well as theory class.

3. Any adult or high school age student that is interested in sponsoring or
being a part of Yearbook, please meet in the Sanctuary tomorrow at Noon. We
have two co-sponsors: Shelly Pichler and Liz Talbot, as well as assistants
Barb Crocker, Jennifer PugaBaker, and Lisa Kilburn. This is a great
opportunity for any motivated and interested high school student that wants
to learn about photography and yearbook editing. Family credits will be
applied to your family bill for participation in this.
4. All parents are invited to a Parent Mixer in the Fellowship Hall at
either 10:00 or 2:00. This is a great time to meet people and ask any
questions. We will have handouts with PSHP information that will be
helpful, especially for new families!!
5. Adult Teacher Meeting at 12:10 in Room 203. Bring your lunch as we
meet! We will talk about Gibbon and how to take attendance, post
assignments and post lesson plans.
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. 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
4. High School girls in advance classes will need to order a concert dress
if they have not already done so. See Judy Cymbaluk in the Music Library to
