Leadership forms

Great job at CTA! This week we will be working on preparations and plans for the middle school visit/recruitment day next week.   Leadership intent form Anyone who is interested in a leadership position next year please fill out the above intent form. Student leaders can be in any grade level and are chosen based on ensemble need and previous class participation. Please note that just because you were previously in a leadership role does not mean you will be in one next year it is not because you did not do a great job it may simply be because our needs have changed. Student leaders will be chosen based on what is best for the ensemble. This weeks quiz is a 20min practice or sectional out side of class. No recordings due this week.
