Saturday Morning students have received a Newsletter welcoming new members, providing feedback on the Christmas concert, an update on the Arts Award programme, housekeeping and practical arrangements and news of coming events. There is also a reminder that the Friends are always looking for new volunteers – we need a few more helpers for Saturday tuckshop once a term. If you would like to help please fill in a card or the form at the front desk or Email us.
If your youngsters, like mine, forgot to take the newsletter and bring it home, you can find a copy here… Bury St Edmunds CMS Newsletter Spring 2015 .
Thanks to all who donated at our Christmas Concerts. We have had a letter of appreciation from East Anglian Children’s Hospice which you can view here… East Anglian Children’s Hospice Letter
A new school term has started, and Music School with it. Volunteers should have received an email with details of the new tuckshop rotas. Email John if you were expecting to hear something about them and you haven’t! For news of forthcoming concerts and other events see the Coming Events page.
Many thanks to all who donated at last weekend’s concerts. We have been able to make a donation of £200 to East Anglian Children’s Hospices. You can find some of John‘s photos of the Saturday Morning concert Here. Have a great Christmas everybody and see you all in the new year!
…are coming up soon! See the Coming Events page or links on Calendar for details.
For those parents, carers and others who stay at Music School on a Saturday morning, the school has now enabled Wi-Fi Internet Access. A new set of keycodes are set up each week and work from 9am to 12pm. Each keycode can be used to connect two devices. You can request a keycode from Mr Carlsen. The school uses a proxy server for internet access, so it’s a good idea to work out how to configure your device or browser’s proxy server settings in advance… or ask John for help – he is usually in the library.
Students today were given a letter with consent form about the end of term Christmas Concert. Consent forms need to be returned by Saturday 29th November.
The Suffolk County Music Service is piloting an Arts Award programme this year. Details were given to students in a letter just before the half-term break. You can find a copy of the letter here. There will be launch meeting after BCMS activities on Saturday 15th November.
Just a reminder that there is no Music School this weekend (or next). Music School restarts the week after the half-term holidays. See the full calendar of rehearsal dates here.
You are invited to join us for tea or coffee and biscuits at our Annual General Meeting in the library at County Upper School. Hear all about what we have been up to in 2013/14 and our plans for the coming year. Have your say in what we do to support our children’s musical activities and bring them new opportunities. You can find the Agenda here. The meeting will start at 10:30, but tea and coffee will be available beforehand.
