Winnipeg Trip Cancelled

Hello Families.  Following is a copy of the note set home in regards to the Winnipeg Music Trip being cancelled.

"It is after many conversations and much consideration that we regret to inform you that the Sheldon-Williams Collegiate Music Department Spring Tour to Winnipeg has been cancelled.  There were many factors involved in this decision and we can assure you that we did not come to this decision lightly.  We appreciate all of the efforts made by families to get the deposits paid in January.  If you have paid your deposit for the trip, you will be hearing from SWAMP regarding refunds for those payments.

We apologize for any difficulties this may have for you.  We are looking forward to the rest of this year and providing a quality musical experience for our students."

We are so excited for our concert tonight - the groups are sounding great at our final rehearsals this week and we can't wait to entertain you.  We have a silver collection at the door but we also wanted to let you know about a few other things taking place in the foyer tonight!

We will have:
  • A hamper for non-perishable food to contribute to the Sheldon-Williams Food Drive, which is sending hampers to eight families next week!
  • A 50/50 with the money going towards buses for the Spring Music Tour!
  • Tickets for the Wizard of Oz, Sheldon's Musical performing January 15-16, 2020.  The tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students/seniors. 
The choir students are asked to meet at the school for 6:25pm and the band students are asked to meet at 6:15pm in the band room.

As well, if you would like to volunteer to help with the 50/50 and Silver Collection, please click HERE.
