As demonstrated on our spring trip, the Remind 101 app can help us get vital info to you fast. Many of you signed up for reminder for the Houston trip but are not signed up for general orchestra information. To do so, please:
Text “@419f4″ to 972-464-2242.
Thank you! It’s free and you don’t need to download anything to your phone. Enjoy all the information!!! This will be very important to us as we get close to the summer and need to communicate events.
Today is Wednesday — Hump Day. It’s also Pearce Orchestra Night at Chili’s!
Let’s grab some dinner at Chili’s AND help support orchestra!
Just come in for dinner and mention to your server that you are with J.J. Pearce Orchestra. Chili’s will donate a portion of your tab back to orchestra. Invite friends, invite the neighborhood!

Pearce Orchestra Families,
Please join the Pearce Directors in congratulating the Pearce High School Orchestra on our recent success. This past weekend at the Space City Music Showcase, both competing groups were awarded “Superior” ratings, “Best in Class” and the Chamber/Advanced group was named “Best Overall Orchestra” for the entire contest. We are so proud of our students!
In addition, I just want to say how proud I am of the student’s behavior overall. Everyone was so professional, always on time and represented our school well. We were able to create many wonderful memories together that I’m sure we’ll be talking about for years to come.
And finally, I want to thank our chaperones and administrator, Donna Anthony. were amazing and took great care of the kids. Without these wonderful adults, the trip would not have been possible.

Parents and Students,
On Tuesday, April 1, 7-8pm in the orchestra room we will have an Orchestra Spring Trip meeting. At this meeting you will receive:
- a detailed itinerary (very different than the one on the website)
- a packing list (required and optional items)
- information about meals, activities, lodging, etc.
- a list/explanation of trip behavior expectations.
You will also have an opportunity to meet the chaperones assigned to your student(s) and a chance to ask questions. Please make plans for the student(s) going on the trip and at least one parent/guardian of that student to attend. A hard copy of the information will be available but the “live” version is better.
