Jazz Band

We will not have a Jazz Band rehearsal this week due to the holiday on Friday.
Please spend some time learning your individual parts at home, and we will practice again on Friday, April 22nd 🙂

Yearbook Photo and Uniform Update

Grade 7, 8 and 9 band students are reminded that yearbook pictures for band will be taken tomorrow morning. Students are reminded to bring their instruments for the photo

Grade 9’s should wear their uniforms to early morning band practice and the photo will be taken in the gym.

Grade 8 photos will be taken during period 2, so students should wear black pants and be prepared to change into their white shirts and vests when called to the band area.

Grade 7 photos will also be taken during period 2. Quite a few new uniforms needed to be ordered for grade 7’s, so grade 7 students can wear casual clothes (not pyjamas!) for their photo tomorrow. I have distributed band vests to most grade 7 students and hopefully the new white shirts will arrive in time for the spring concert in June (date to be announced).

Washing Uniforms

If you are laundering your band vest PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU WASH IT IN COLD WATER ON THE GENTLE CYCLE AND HANG DRY OR LAY ON A FLAT SURFACE. DO NOT PUT BLACK SWEATER VESTS IN THE DRYER PLEASE.

Band Yearbook Photos

Yearbook pictures of the grade 7, 8 and 9 band classes will be taken on Thursday, April 14th.

Band students are asked to please make sure that they bring their instruments and uniforms for the photos. 

Grade 9 students already have their uniforms and wore them for the Remembrance Day assembly. Students in grade 8 are asked to please check tonight to make sure that their uniforms still fit. If the vests or shirts need to be exchanged, please bring them to early morning band tomorrow.

*All students should wear black pants for the photo.

Uniforms will be passed out to Grade 7 students tomorrow (Wednesday).
