NPMK Director’s Message

Thanks again for another successful Saturday! We had tons of volunteers out, masked up, to help our kids have a great day. We appreciate all those that bought Air Grams, Candy Grams and High Reach Raffle tickets to help us raise some money. With no Football concessions or Knight of Sound, every little bit of money raised helps.
The results from our October 10 competition were announced last night. The Woodwinds had their second straight first place finish and earned an impressive score of 86.00. The Brass joined them, winning their division! Percussion and Color Guard both increased their scores with impressive performances! I felt that the performances last night were the best so far across the board. So, I expect we’ll have more great results next week!
This week we have a slight change in schedule as we are off Tuesday and rehearse on Wednesday instead. This was due to the National Honors Society induction that was scheduled for Tuesday night. Saturday’s schedule will be very similar to this week. Look for that schedule in the mid-week bulletin.
Finally, I hope you will consider joining us for the Champs Dinner on Sunday. This is a fantastic event for our kids. It is not mandatory for students or parents to attend, especially due to the pandemic, but if you are comfortable attending I think you’ll be really amazed if you are a first time NPMK parent.
Thanks for everything! The finish line is in sight and we are doing everything we can to make these last few weeks safe and special for our kids.
Mr. S
