My apologies for the late post. I was involved with the grade 9 Honour Band all weekend and I forgot to send it out.
We will follow the regular early morning band schedule this week for grade 7, 8, and 9, and we will have a jazz band rehearsal on Wednesday after school (3:15-4:00).
The Honour Band weekend is going really well and we can’t wait to share the music with all of you on Sunday!
The concert is at 2:00 at the new UPEI performance centre. Watch the video below for directions!
Tuesday, January 24: Grade 7 early AM Band (if there are no delays or cancelations tomorrow)
Wednesday, January 25: Grade 8 early AM Band and Grade 9 Honour Band rehearsal after school
Thursday, January 26: Grade 9 early AM Band
Friday, January 27: Grade 9 Honour Band weekend begins (see Google Classroom for the detailed schedule)
I hope that everyone is safe and warm on this icy, rainy day!
Here is the band rehearsal schedule for this week:
Tuesday, January 17th: Grade 7 early am band is
canceled (I will be attending a curriculum meeting in Summerside)

Students will be given new band music and new individual playing assignments this week, so they should check for details in Google Classroom 🎵
