The Institute for Excellence Charter School
Dear TIFECS Parents,
It’s almost the end of the year! That also means that it’s concert time and I would like to fill you
in on all the details for the Second Annual TIFECS Spring Concert.
This year’s concert will include our first through fourth grade students as well as a surprise
performance by the teachers! It will take place at Winslow Township High School on
Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 6:00pm. I would like students to arrive at 5:30pm. The
dress code will be “Spring-festive” (what you would wear to a nice springtime party or church).
Each grade level will represent a different aspect of the performing arts that will be summed up
with our outstanding 4th Grade Musical!
This year, there will be an attendance policy for the TIFECS Concerts. Since 45% of the
students’ music class grade is Participation, I am incorporating concert participation into the
grades. In addition to this, the students are performing pieces that require a certain number of
students and a missing student will be detrimental to the group.
What does this mean for your child?
- If you child cannot attend the concert, I am asking that I receive documentation by
letter or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will “excuse” the student from
attending the concert. This will allow me to fill in their spot.
This letter should be received no later than Monday, April 23th.
- If a student does not show up to the concert and I have not received documentation
from their parent, the student’s grade will be affected negatively and they will be asked
to submit a make-up assignment at my discretion.
- “Exempt Students” will not be responsible to make up any work for missing the concert.
In addition to the wonderful sights and sounds that the students will be providing on stage, there
will also be the First Annual K-4 Art Show display in the lobby! All students and family members
are welcome to attend the concert; your children have been working very hard and look forward
to putting on their best performance for you.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to email me at the above address.
