During our Retreat on 11/15 and 11/16, we will be serving dinner on the evening of Friday, 11/15 and lunch on Saturday, November 16th. We have created a signup genius for water, desserts, utensils, and volunteers. We would greatly appreciate it if you could sign up for a slot. You can drop your donation at the school before we are serving the meals(5:30PM on Friday or 11:30AM on Saturday) or send it in with your student. Please note we have taken into account all dietary restrictions. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
WWS SHOW CHOIRS UPDATE
Hello everyone! Things are starting to get into a higher gear around here! I have some items for you all. I’ve tried to make this brief…please read everything and let me know if you have any questions!
COLUMBUS DAY REHEARSAL
Starts at 9am at WWS. Pizza will be provided for lunch! Excited to keep working!
-Esprit and Classics each have their own entry in the 1st ever WWS Homecoming Parade. The Parade is Tuesday October 15th, at 5pm. It will be a relatively short parade, approximately .5 mile. We're going to have our staging area in the Atten Park (tennis court area) parking lot, march down Wiesbrook and then end in the WWS parking lot. The groups are planning on wearing Classics/Esprit gear and walking with signs and handing out candy. MEET AT ATTEN BETWEEN 4-4:30. THIS IS NOT MANDATORY TO ATTEND. It would be great to have a big turnout for the first ever parade, though!
ESPRIT AND CLASSICS COMBINED PARENT GET TOGETHER
While many of our students attend the Homecoming dance, please join us and meet the parents of the 2020 Show Choir competition season.
We'll enjoy complimentary appetizers and soft drinks. Alcoholic beverages (cash bar) will be available. Live band starts at 7:30 in the Fireplace Room.
Please RSVP HERE: http://evite.me/e28Gw7fVDs BEFORE Monday 10/14 so we have an accurate count for food.

SHOW CHOIR CLINIC
This year, both Classics and Esprit will attend Clinic on the same day at the same location. The clinic is once again hosted by Naperville North and will run from 8am-approximately 4:30pm on Saturday December 14. Our show choirs will be joined by Naperville North’s Show Choirs as well as a Show Choir from Naperville Central. Should be a great day of learning, improving and connecting!

Dear Classics Parents,
Many thanks to all of the families that donated food, drink and games to the Classics BBQ. The contributions were greatly appreciated. Despite the rain the kids had a great time and were lovely guests. You have all raised mannerly and gracious young adults. (Good job!!)
A special thank you to Cindi Emma, Sue Lewis and Jennifer Belmont for helping set up, serve and clean up. Many hands make light the work not to mention a lot more fun.
I do have two bags games that I’m not sure who they belong to. If you are missing your bags game please email me at email@example.com and I can drop it off to you or you can pick it up from my front porch.
