Day 18
 Quote of the Day -Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and places to pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. – John Muir
Homework for all – Practice your instruments for GHR pass-offs, scales,  music rehearsed in class.
Reminders:
 1. All GHR fair shares should be current.
2. National Anthem and Fight Song pass-offs took place today during HOT lunch.  Look for google doc.  Call backs on warm-ups are posted on the hallway bulletin board.
3. Saturday, September 24, is our mini-camp from 7:30-7 PM.  Please make sure this is on your calendar.  It is required!  You will need to pack a lunch.  Have Mvt. 3 memorized.  Percussion  will need to learn ALL of it by 5 PM, as you will not get your music until Saturday morning.  Yippee!!
