This week in band (March 26th)

6th Grade

We will be doing our T-Shirt reorder the week after spring break. Please be on the look out for an order form. We are offering our 6th graders the opportunity to play in chamber ensembles before and after our 6th grade concert (Chamber Ensembles are really small groups with one person only playing each part). This is voluntary, because it does require students to come in early and practice. We open the band room at 8am every morning. If your student would like to come in and practice they are more than welcome, but please do not drop them off early. This causes a problem with unsupervised students.

7th Grade

A big thank you to everyone that has chaperoned over the last few days. We could not do the things that we do for our students without your help. LPGE was a great success, and all of our evaluators really enjoyed the concerts.

We will be continuing to work on Spring Concert music. Please make sure your student made it home with the entire uniform, and that it is not laying in a pile at the bottom of their closet. We will be wearing those uniforms again for the spring concert on May 1st.

Rookie week at Walton for the marching band will be April 16-20. I cannot encourage each student enough to try this out. We have students each year that say they will never do marching band only to really enjoy rookie week. We will be sending out details soon about times and exact dates, but it will be after school each day that entire week. If you can only make one of those days please come on out and try it. You will not regret it.
