Rehearsal Update

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to post a quick update in light of today’s CPHO news conference.

I will provide a new rehearsal schedule for this week as soon as I get more information about the circuit breaker measures and how they might affect our band practices.

Take care, everyone!

Storm Day Updates!

Grade 8 early morning band will go ahead tomorrow (Wednesday) as scheduled.

Grade 9 Jazz band is canceled for tomorrow after school.

The band room will be open after school tomorrow from 3:15-4:15 pm for students who want to practice, get extra help, or record playing assignments.

A reminder that the band room is open every Day 1 and Day 4 during the lunch break for students who wish to practice or record assignments.

Late assignments must be submitted by 3:00 pm on Thursday, February 25th in order to be included on the March report card.

A new sign up sheet for the remaining grade 8 percussion auditions will be added to Google Classroom tomorrow.

Grade 8 Percussion Auditions

Percussion auditions have now been scheduled for MONDAY, February 22nd. Please click on the button to see your audition time and please arrive on time for your audition with your current instrument and music. A notice has also been posted in the grade 8 Google Classrooms. Be prepared to play the assigned scale (Bb concert) and technique study (Drive Time) and review the rhythms at the back of the blue book. Good luck to all!

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.
