This Week in Band (Week of February 12th)

Dear Parents,

Thank you again for all you do for our students. As we enter the end of February and March please know that we get very busy. We have LGPE coming up for all of our 7th graders and our 8th grade Concert Band. Our 8th Grade Symphonic band will be attending the Music for All Southeastern Regional at Georgia State. This is an invitational event, and Dickerson was accepted as one of 6 bands out of over 100 that applied. This is a huge honor for our program, and we very proud of all the hard work our 8th graders have already put in. Please read the events for each grade this week, and let Mr. Grimes or Mr. Brown know if you have any questions.
