Hello everyone!

Another thing that we are participating in. here's what it is....

Tri - M Petition and Change Drive Contest
MENC's goal is to deliver one million signatures to the Department of Education on June 18, 2009
Petitions for what? well the MENC with Tri - M wants to call on the U.S. Department of Education and all American Leaders to:
-Mandate that music and the other arts be part of every child's core curriculum;
-Ensure music and the other arts are included as a part of a balanced education addressing the whole child, to prepare them for the creative thinking necessary for success in the work force of the future;
-Ensure qualified music teachers and sequential curricula be recognized as the basis for providing all students with substantive education in music and the other arts;
-Ensure programs in music and the other arts provide rigorous instruction, monitor progress and performance through meaningful assessment, and take place within a structure of accountability to school officials, parents, and the community.

Everything is due to John Chang, me or Ms. Maloney by April 28, 2009 (Latest April 29, 2009)
It's due to the MENC by April 30.

When you see me around, ask me for the petition form

Did I mention it was a contest? well the Chapter with the most signitures get one Tri - M banner and Tri - M t - shirts for each and every member of the chapter. 2nd place gets a Tri - M banner
*even though we already have a banner, who cares, it's free. lol

Regarding to Relay For Life

I just recently learned that Relay for Life is the day after Prom. For those who are going, just tell me what time you will be showing up, but keep in mind that our drumline will be performing in the morning, and our Marching Band's Drum majors along with your President and your Vice President will be marching along with them. I would like as many people as possible that morning as well, because I would like to get a picture and send it to MENC so they may publish it on Tri - M News, also so we may put it on our Tri - M yearbook and send it to MENC and try to win Chapter of the Year, so we can show MKHS we dominate as a Tri - M chapter around here, and it's our turf muwahwahahahaha.....
yeah.. so Prom is Friday, May 15, 2009
Relay For Life is Saturday, May 16, 2009 - Sunday, May 17, 2009
For those of you who will be working with service clubs, I understand that, but you will have a lot of time to be with Tri - M through out the day. So stop using it as an excuse! The person in charge already told me they have A LOT of vollunteers, so there would be no problem if you guys stepped away from your service club.
For the forms, just fill out what you can. I'll tell you how to fill out everything else on the meeting we have on March 6, I will be at another meeting with American Cancer Society on March 2. So if there are any questions, feel free to ask.

The American Cancer Society

I was just recently at a meeting/ dinner with the American Cancer Society, and I have signed us up as a team for the "Relay for Life" event held at Alhambra Park on May 16-17. They asked me if I can try to get the whole music program involved. Like one thing that they want is that, the first lap which is for survivors of cancer "The Survivors Lap", and they would like our band and or our drumline to lead the way on the first lap, also at night when they do the candle light ceremonial thing for loved ones they asked if our choir can sing while it happens. Can't wait!! this is a big cause and of course our National Honor Society is here to help! =D Music helps in all aspects of life, getting through tough times like cancer, music can cure the mind and the soul (woah Albert, Thats deep, lol) BUT ITS TRUE!!
and we know our own Tri - M advisor attended this last year and the people there still remember Ms. Maloney, for those of you who don't know, Ms. Maloney, our great Tri - M advisor found out last year that she has cancer in her left eye. So our chapter should be involved. =]
Here's a video to understand what we will be doing, I'll have more info at the meeting friday

So Whats up with the Social?

I said it started at 12:00pm before but lets make it around 12:15 ish I guess. Anyone with board games, bring them if you think it'll be a fun thing to play. Bring something that we can play with.
Thank you to all of you who are contributing to this event. Please try to make it.

If there are any questions feel free to contact me via email [ ] or the best option which is calling me. ask around for my number. i dont want to post up my number because this is the world wide web so yeah. ask around
