The RTA band students were very helpful with the Remembrance Day ceremonies performing and helping with set up and take down. They played O Canada and carried out a very professional demeanour throughout both ceremonies. I have heard many compliments from staff and parents about how well they performed.
In the past I have taken a small group of students to the Education Centre downtown to perform O Canada at a board of directors’ meeting. After performing, each student receives a certificate with their name on it. With the RTA band’s success on Remembrance Day, I am looking into finding out if this could be a possibility for them this year.
The Winter Concert will be a combined RTA and Dr. George Stanley concert held at Lord Beaverbrook Theatre on Wednesday January 25th. The RTA 7-9 band and grade 5 and 6 music students will be performing. Dr. George Stanley grade 4 music and 5-8 band students will be performing. Students should arrive by 6:00 pm and be dressed in black and white. More information to follow.
I will be available for walk-in parent/teacher conferences on Wednesday November 23rd from 3:45 to 6:00pm for all RTA parents. - Ms. Thesen
