We do have some extra shoes you may wear.  Football players, cheerleaders, and poms may wear those respected uniforms for the football game performances.

My grading policy will be based on a combination of the following:

  1. 50%..Performances-attendance, punctuality, effort.

  2. 50%..Classroom/Rehearsals-participation, attendance, punctuality, effort.

Excused absences include absence from school due to illness or family emergency, and director’s excuse-special situations excused by me well in advance of a performance.

                                                                              Thank You,

                                                                             Mr. Olmsted
