April 26th Band News

Congratulations to all of the band students on their excellent performances on Friday morning! The grade 6 students (and their teachers) really enjoyed the concert, and I hope that we will see lots of applications for the EWS band program come in over the next couple of weeks.

Our annual PEI Band Days music festival was cancelled again this year due to COVID-19, but the PSB and the DELL have once again provided sub time and funding for band clinicians to work with band students at their schools. The EWS Band Days sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 26th during periods 1, 2 and 3. Each grade level band will work with the guest director for one period. Students will not need to wear uniforms for this event, but they will need to bring their instruments and music.
