It wasn’t possible for us to take the bands on the road this year for our annual Beginning Band Day and PEI Band Days music festivals but we were able to have Mr. FitzGerald come to us for three excellent music sessions on Tuesday morning. We would normally do something on our spring field trip days to reward/thank students for their commitment to band throughout the year and, since we weren’t able to do that in April, we have scheduled some fun days in June!
On Thursday, June 16th, the Grade 8 band students will travel to Murphy’s Bowling Lanes for an afternoon pizza and bowling party. The Grade 9 band students will have their afternoon pizza and bowling party the next day (Friday, June 17th).
The grade 7 band students will have a pizza, movie and pajama afternoon at East Wiltshire in late June (date to be determined).
The band students have worked very hard this year, and they have been incredibly resilient and cooperative despite all of the restrictions and inconveniences that COVID has created for student musicians.
If there are any parents who might be available to help chaperone the bowling parties please let me know.
Have a great weekend!
