Band Rehearsal Schedule (Feb.16-18)

Due to repairs that had to made to the basketball nets in the gym this morning, grade 9 rehearsals were moved to the band room and I ran two 25 minute sectionals instead of a full band practice.

Because of this change, we will have a full grade 9 early morning band practice in the gym next Thursday, February 18th. The grade 9 brass sectional scheduled for Friday, February 19th is cancelled.

Thank you, and have a safe and fun long weekend!

Band Uniforms

Band uniforms were passed out to all students before Christmas, but we were missing a few sizes. Orders are being placed on Monday for white band shirts and vests for those who need them. Please click on the link below and complete the Google Form if your child needs to order a new white shirt and/or vest or if they need a different size. The cost of uniforms is covered by the annual $25 band fee. Thank you

February Rehearsal Schedule

We are turning another calendar page this weekend and I have created a rehearsal schedule for the month of February. All rehearsals are early morning rehearsals unless otherwise indicated on the calendar.

Thank you for your support; the students are working hard and they sound great!

*The schedule may need to be adjusted if there are school cancellations or delays, or if there are changes in the gym schedule.

Happy New Year!

Please find below the early am band rehearsal schedule for next week. Students are asked to be in the band room by 7:45 a.m. on early morning band days. The school doors will be opened by the custodian at 7:30 a.m. Now that winter weather has arrived, please review the band policy for storm closures, cancellations and delays (see tabs at the top of the page).

The band room will be open on Monday and Thursday from 12:10-12:45 pm this week for students who wish to practice or record playing assignments. Extra help is available from 3:15-4:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

As always, please send me an e-mail (in advance if possible) if your child is unable to attend an early morning rehearsal.
