Going into Break

As we head into break we wanted to make sure everyone was aware of a few things.

Fundraiser update: We have sent in the fundraiser order. We should be notified in the next two weeks when delivery will be.

8th Grade Doublers: 8th Graders that are placed in symphonic band are allowed to double. All students wishing to double will be given a permission slip today (Thursday September 21). Please return the slip as soon as possible. If your student is out today you can download the form here.

Parent Permission Double Band 2017-18

Instrument drop off: We have had lots of instruments dropped off in the front office lately. We ask that parents do not bring instruments and drop them off for students. While we would love for our students to have their instruments in class all the time, our front office staff is not able to receive and guard personal instruments until your student comes to get it. Please be considerate of our front office staff and do not bring forgotten instruments. Thank you so much for understanding, and please email Mr. Grimes with any questions.

This Week in Band (Week of September 18th)

Our 6th graders will be continuing to work in their books

7th Graders will be testing this week on Tuesday and Wednesday

Please expect to see a piece of paper coming home at the end of the week with information about Symphonic Band, Concert Band, and Full Orchestra

Our 8th Grade Band has also been invited to perform at the Music for All Southeastern Concert Festival. This is a huge honor, and we will begin to prepare next month for this March Performance. You can also expect to see some paperwork about this performance in the next few weeks.
