Tumbler Fundraiser Collection Tomorrow

Our cups are here. Mr. Fred Barton will be here tomorrow (Thursday) to pass out the fundraiser orders at the end of the early release school day. Just in time for Christmas. 

If you would like to purchase a Carrollton Tumbler I’m sure he will have extras. 

Thanks all.

CONCERT REMINDERS FOR PARENTS:

Please collect your child’s cell phone prior to the performance.

Please do not hold up iPads or cell phones during the performance to record video or audio it is distracting to those behind you.

Please remember to be silent during the performances, this is a formal event not a sporting event.  The students deserve a quiet environment to make music in.  Please leave the auditorium if you have a crying child as we are recording audio.

PARKING:  Remember parking could be a challenge for everyone so arrive early, and be patient.

Thank you all for your support, we look forward to performing for you this evening.

 

Concert Monday Night

With our 8th grade after school rehearsal today we put the finishing touches on our concert music and we are all set for an awesome performance next week. Here is some information to keep in mind as you prepare for next Monday night:

Arrival Information

6th grade band: arrive at 6:30pm in full uniform, shirt tucked in. Report to the stage. 

7th grade band: arrive at 6:45pm in full uniform, shirt tucked in. Report to the warm up room backstage right. 

8th grade band: arrive at 6:45pm in full uniform, shirt tucked in. Report to the front right seats to watch 6th grade perform. 

Volunteer Information

We will need several parents to come help setup after school at the MAC at around 3:15pm. We will also need everyone’s effort to pack up after the concert is over. 

Parking Information

This will be the first concert without the use of the high school parking lot directly in front of the MAC. That is where the new HS is being built. All parents will need to park across the street in the new lower parking lot. The gym and tennis court parking will most likely be pretty full due to basketball game at the HS gym. Please plan ahead and arrive a little bit early. 

Concert Expectations

My expectation for all those watching the concert is that all of the bands will stay for the entire time and enjoy the entire performance. Please do not leave early.

Please collect your child’s cell phone. Be adamant about holding onto it for them, it becomes a distraction when the students are in the audience and should be watching and listening the other bands. 

Please be extremely quiet throughout the performance. We want to create a formal, quiet environment where music can be created. We also record all of our performances for reflection in class. 

When we all work together we can create a great environment for our kids to show off. 

I cannot wait to see you there Monday night.

Good Luck Tomorrow

We have 35 students auditioning for district honor band tomorrow. I wish them good luck, play confidently, be respectful to the judges and do your best. Whether you make the band or not you have already made me proud. 

Reminders

  1. Remember to register and pick up your judges sheet. 
  2. Warmup in the gym, not too much. 
  3. If you need a repair or supplies there will be a repairman in the gym.
