Most of the 7th grade will be attending LGPE (Large Group Performance Evaluation) on Tuesday at McEachern High School. Concert band students should report to school on Tuesday in uniform. They will be attending 1-3 periods as normal. Symphonic Band students can wear their uniforms if they choose, but they will have some extra time to change before we leave. If you would like to come watch your student perform here are the performance times:

Please note that your students will not be allowed to join us on the trip if they are not in uniform. Gentleman should be in tuxes with their black shirt and vest. If you did not receive a bow tie they will be handed out on Tuesday. Gentleman should have black dress shoes and black socks.  Ladies should be in their concert black dresses and black dress shoes.

 

Any parent that would like to take their student home from McEachern after the performance, clinic, and sight reading (the whole process takes about an hour from the start of the performance), should send a signed letter to Mr. Grimes letting him know who is picking the student up. We will check out students at the busses after performances.
