Hello 7th & 8th Grade Band Families,
I wanted to make sure you are planning ahead for our first band concert on September 26 at South Middle School. The concert will begin at 7:00pm in the gymnasium. Friends and family are strongly encouraged to attend!
I am still working out details for the student report time, but typically students arrive at 6:30pm to warm up. I'll send more details as we get closer to the 26th.
During concerts, students wear the band polo (same as last year) with black or khaki pants and nice shoes. If your child is new to Ray-Pec or needs a new polo, make sure to complete the form to receive a band polo (rpbands.com/bandpolo). Band concerts are special occasions and we ask that students not wear jeans, shorts, yoga pants, or tennis shoes. My standard advice for parents and students with questions of the dress code is to please do your best. I understand that some families do not wish to purchase new clothing for kids during growth spurts. Many families borrow clothing from friends and family to make things a little easier. So, please...do your best. :)
