Good evening everyone!
I would like to introduce myself, my name is Mark Malechek (Mr. M), and I am very proud to be the new music teacher at NKHS. New Kent is a very special place to me, as I am a third generation NKHS alum (Class of 2002). It is wonderful to be back in the New Kent community. I am thrilled to work with you all this year!
I am working on updating this site with information for the upcoming year, so check back often over the summer. I am working on getting performance dates for all ensembles on the calendar, so that you can plan accordingly.
Marching Band camp will be August 6-10 and August 13-15 from 8 AM-6 PM school. We are very lucky to have enlisted the arranging skills of Bryan Kidd (former Chief Arranger for the United States Navy Band, Washington D.C.), as well as drill design by Donald Bradner. The working title for the show is "Something Old, Something New." Stay tuned for selection updates!
The music program now has a Facebook page! Check us out: www.facebook.com/NKHSMusic
I am working to get my NK email address, as soon as I do, I will link it here.
Band camp is going VERY well! We have two parts of the show on the field and we are excited to show you TOMORROW (Wednesday 8/23) at 5PM for our Parent performance! Please come and check out what your students have been working on!
You have already received and will continue to receive emails from Liz Miller and Tammy Dore about parent involvement and fundraisers. Please sign up where you can to help. Parent support is what makes everything run smoothly.
The FIRST GAME of the season is NEXT THURSDAY (8/31) and the schedule is as follows:
6pm Snack break (bring your own snack)
6:40pm Step off
6:55pm National Anthem
Students will be done when the game ends (8:45/9:00ish)
We would LOVE to see you in the stands for our first game!
THANK YOU to all of those that donated, purchased a mattress, encouraged others to participate, bought or sold fruit, etc... NKHS Music had a very successful fundraising campaign this year.
Every dollar brought in is being used to support the students and expand educational and performances opportunities.
Your continued support is instrumental to our growth and success.
Thank you for supporting Music at New Kent High School.
If you or someone you know is in the market for a new mattress, NKHS Music has got what you need! We are working with Custom Fundraising Solutions to host a mattress sale at NKHS on June 10 beginning at 10am. We will be turning the gym into a mattress showroom!
