Athletic reminders from Ms. Robbins Hello YHS Students, I wanted to remind you all of a few items regarding extra curricular participation. 1. In order to be eligible to play in games or participate in practices you must be in school by 9:00 a.m. On Wednesdays late start 9:00 is still 9:00. 2. The MPA has a bona fide team rule which means you cannot miss a YHS sports practice or game for a travel team or tournament with out penalty. Each student-athlete may miss one according to the policy. MPA Explanation: A member of a school team is a student athlete who is regularly present for and actively participates in team practices and competitions. Bona fide members of a school team are prevented from missing high school practice or competition to compete or practice elsewhere. The form you must fill out is attached. 3. Friday January 27th is the end of Quarter 2 and the first Semester. Eligibility will come into affect on February 2nd. Students must be passing all five courses in order to be eligible for extra curricular activities. Please feel free to check in with me if you have any questions.

Community Service opportunity If any student is interested in earning community service hours by helping out with a video editing project over the next two to three weeks, please let me know ASAP. This is work that can be done on your own time and with the software of your choice, so there is a lot of flexibility in when and how the project is completed. Best -- Ms. Bongard

Auditions for Advanced Vocal Ensemble & Chamber Choir Dear Students, If you are a sophomore or junior and have taken a year of Chorus (Concert Choir) at YHS or had a similar experience at another high school, then read on... ​The week of Feb. 13 we will be having auditions for Advanced Vocal Ensemble and Chamber Choir. The prerequisite for either class is one full year in YHS Chorus or a similar experience at another high school. There is one audition for advancing. Placement in one of the choirs is based on your skills. Sometimes students need a second year of experience in Chorus and then audition again after that year. The audition has several parts and tests your voice, ear, and reading ability. There is a special format and some special music you will need. The first step is to go to my home page and click on either Chamber Choir or Advanced Vocal Ensemble. The direct link can be found on this announcement under Student News. Read the audition information and visit the site with the tracks and music for "Fire, Fire." After looking at the information, contact me and we can decide which voice part you should learn for "Fire, Fire" and you can tell me what your choice song will be. Then we'll look at scheduling an audition the week of Feb. 13. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope some of you consider this opportunity to return to vocal music at YHS! Mr. Dustin -- Rick Dustin Choral Music Director, Yarmouth High School
