Intermediate Band students will have no rehearsal but will be set an assignment in its place..students will be advised in class but what this space and the Intermediate assignment tab for more info.
 The goals of the senior retreat are to both give students a chance to get to know each other and bond as a team, but also to work on some core concepts and understand the goals Mr.Ward, Ms. Klippenstein and myself will be setting for them throughout the year and how we plan to get there.

The rehearsals and activities will be held at Allan Bowl (328 Main St, Allan)  supper will be provided there. PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP IF STUDENTS HAVE ANY FOOD ALLERGIES. The students will be having pizza for supper.
Bussing – Students will take Buses as normal with the exception of Allan Students who will just remain in Allan School until rehearsal time and Clavet Students who will need to wait at Clavet for the Aberdeen Bus to pick them up between 3:30 and 4:00pm. The retreat will end at 7pm (half and hour early) to allow time for the buses to return to their home communities at the regular weekly time.
