All-School Musical
James and the Giant Peach
The school musical auditions are open to all Pin Oak MS students. Students do not need to prepare anything - the music director will teach them a song and then they will sing it. If your student decides to audition, tell them to go straight to the Caja Negra after school (3:30-6PM) tomorrow. For the lead roles we will have callback acting auditions after Thanksgiving. Those selected for callbacks will be posted before the Thanksgiving break outside of the Caja Negra (room D108).  The audition sheet is attached to the SchoolMessenger email or available in the main office.  Any student interested in auditioning must have the Audition Sheet signed by a parent/guardian.

Picture Retakes
Don't like the first set of school pictures? Did your student miss picture day?  Retakes are scheduled for Tuesday, December 1st.  Order forms available in the main office.
