This week in band (Week of September 17th)

Mr. Brown and Mr. Grimes would like to thank everyone who participated in the fundraiser. It was a big success, and we could not do all of this without your help.

6th Grade – 6th Grade will be continuing with class as normal. We have our first playing test at the end of this week.

7th Grade – 7th grade will be finishing up playing tests this week. Please make sure you have checked your students grade in the past few weeks. If you have any questions please let Mr. Grimes or Mr. Brown know.

8th Grade Рparents please do not forget that Chicago deposits are due this Wednesday September 19th. You can play on mypaymentsplus, or you can send in a check. Please realize that this is a hard deadline, and we cannot extend it.

We sent home information about 8th grade night at Walton last week. There is no cost for 8th grade night, but permission forms are due this Friday. We encourage everyone to join us for this event. It allows your child the opportunity to see what the marching band is like in a fun environment. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Grimes or Mr. Brown.
