KARE is Madison’s community service group that meets after school to help others. Our first official meeting will be later this month. Any returning members who would either like to help judge the talent show tryouts or be a stage crew member/emcee the night of the show should see Mrs. Malgioglio ASAP in room 122.

Save the date: KARE’s annual talent show will be held the evening of Thursday, Oct. 9. Tryouts will be held after school on Sept. 15, 17, and 22. Students only have to attend one tryout, but MUST sign up for it ahead of time. Singers need to bring a cd/iPod with a song that does not have the vocals. All talents including, but not limited to, musicians, bands, magicians, vocalists, gymnasts, cheer groups, etc. are encouraged to tryout.

Jazz band audition materials are available in the band room. Students should see Mr. Thornton to sign-up for an audition time.
