This Week in Band (Weeks of October 15th and Week of October 22nd)

Dear Parents,
All students have been working hard over the past few weeks. We have started preparation for our November Concerts, and Solo and Ensemble Festival

Fundraiser Delivery (All Grades)

Our fundraiser delivery will be next Wednesday October 24th from 11am-6pm. If you come during the school day you will probably still need to sign in at the front office. We do not have the ability to store items, so everything must be picked up on this day. We are still looking for a few volunteers to help. If you are available please sign up below.

Sign up to help with delivery day.

Solo and Ensemble Groups
We continue to prepare for Solo and Ensemble. Please remember that all Solo and Ensemble groups have two performances. On the night of November 1st we will have a Preview concert in the Dickerson Theater at 7pm. The concert will be followed by a short reception.

Solo and Ensemble will be two days later on Saturday November 3rd at Hightower Trail Middle School. We have just received times, and I will be passing those out on Friday. If you have any questions please let me know.

All State and Honor Band

All All state and Honor Band students should be preparing for auditions. We will know audition times next week.

6th Grade

Our 6th grade concert is fast approaching on November 27th. We will be wearing band T-Shirts and Jeans for that concert. Our band T-shirts should be delivered by next week. The concert will be at 6:30pm and will only last about 30 minutes. Please make sure your calendars. All students are expected to attend all concerts. If there is any issue please let Mr. Grimes or Mr. Brown know as soon as possible.

7th and 8th Grade Band

Our first concert will be the night of November 29th at 6:30 for 7th grade and 7:30 for 8th grade. We will continue our tradition of letting the students wear tacky holiday sweaters for this concert. If your student does not want to wear a sweater then a band T-shirt will be fine.

Uniforms

We will be sending out uniform information in the next few weeks. We are reducing the cost a bit this year, so we have had to wait on some funds before we could order uniforms. Thank you for your patience with this.

8th Grade Chicago trip

An email went out today to all parents selected to be a chaperone on the trip. The next payment is due November 9th. If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.
