Hello 7th and 8th Grade Band Families,
We are having a Band Picture Day on Thursday, November 16th. Students need to wear their band polo (with regular school clothes) for a group picture. The group photo will be used in the yearbook, so all students will participate.
If you would like to order a copy of the group photo, you can print the attached order form (or use the order form for info to order online). Bring the form to picture day. You also have the opportunity to have individual pictures taken of your child with their instrument. Small group photos of siblings or friends is okay, too.
Hello 6th Grade Band Families,
It is time to start planning for our concert December 14. The sixth grade band meets in five different classes and we need to practice all together. To do this, I have scheduled 3 rehearsals from 3:00-4:15pm on the following dates:
- Wednesday, November 29
- Monday, December 4
- Monday, December 11
These rehearsals are important and required. Now is a good time to begin making arrangements for rides. We have 122 students in 6th grade band, and I am sure there are parents willing to help with rides. :)
The concert is December 14 at South Middle School in the gymnasium. The performance begins at 7:30pm. Students will arrive by 7:00pm to warm up. The students will wear their band polo with black or khaki pants and nice shoes. Please do your best to meet this dress code. If you cannot, please use your best judgement to make sure your child looks nice for their first concert.
You are welcome and encourage to invite friends and families to the concert.
8th Grade Band will perform at the Veteran's Day assembly on Friday, November 10. To help students prepare for the performance, I have provided audio files of each part. You can stream the music or download it to an mp3 player.
