Registration: You will find out your child's playing time about two weeks before STAD. Since approximately 200 students attend STAD, scheduling each student is a large task. Thus we cannot take any time requests from parents. If you and your child decide to participate in STAD, you must make the commitment to be there when your child's playing time is given. If you have an unavoidable conflict you may talk to your teacher, who may or may not be able to switch times with another student of theirs.You will receive a blue registration sheet and a yellow comment sheet from your teacher before STAD. Both sheets must be filled out correctly upon arriving at your performance location on March 2nd for your child to participate. Music must be the original copy (no photocopies) with the first measure of each line numbered and pages marked and ready for the listener.
