What a Great Week !!!!

Wow!!! What a great start to the school year.  Ms. Menendez and I are so proud of the hard work that has been done already this week.  I wanted to put up a post to say thank you, and hopefully if you have subscribed you will receive an email.

6th Grade Band Announcements:

We have begun instrument screenings so your child may have already tried the three (or more) things that they are interested in and have selected their instrument. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE AN INSTRUMENT YET!!!!

We will have our instrument nights on Sept. 2nd and 3rd for you to come browse and purchase the correct brand and model of instrument you will need.  There is an awful lot of junky, fake instruments on the internet that will set you back a lot of money, please wait and come to instrument night.

A reminder that all band forms and fee’s are due next Friday.

7th and 8th Grade Band Announcements:

We had a great first week, getting our horns back in working condition and playing through our new upper level warm-ups and chorales.  We will continue to play and challenge your children next week.  We will also begin preparing the students for Trojan Band, and District Honor Band Auditions next week.  Please listen out as your child should be practicing 2 to 3 nights per week.

A reminder that all band forms and fee’s are due next Friday.

Trojan Band Update:

There will be a sign-up sheet up on the wall for Trojan Band, and those Fee’s ($15) will be due by Aug. 26th, which is our first (and only) after school practice.  Please check the calendar.  Remember the $15 will cover the cost for there performance shirt and Hat.  8th grade band members who already have a shirt and hat that fit will not need to pay to be a part of the Trojan Band this year, if you need only one new part of the uniform please pay $10.

Thank you again, please share this website with any other band parents you know just to make sure everyone is subscribed.

Have a great weekend.
