Reminders and Updates

Hello all. With so much going on I thought I would catch you up. 

Cookie Dough

Keep selling. Hold on to all orders until Sept 15th. Parents please help with organizing and holding on to your child’s money until the turn in date. 

Trojan Band

Our first, and only, Trojan Band rehearsal is next week Tuesday after school from 3:30-5. We should have shirts and hats to distribute and all music to run through. I will not need the Trojan band parent committee at this rehearsal. I will need our Trojan band parent committee at next Thursday’s game. The game begins at 5:30pm, students should go home from school and get a ride back to school for the game. Report time is 5pm, the location of  he game has not yet been determined, I am hoping its in Grisham stadium. 

District Honor Band

Today in class we spoke about district honor band and the signup has been posted. I recommend all students tryout for district honor band. It is a significant challenge for all students and pushes them to new levels of musicianship that cannot be found by just attending band class. In short, the students prepare a short solo and scales and will travel to Cartersville on a bus in December to audition for a band made up of the scoring students from all of the schools in our district. If they make the band they get to go for a weekend in February to Ringold GA to perform with the honor band. It is an excellent opportunity for all 7th and 8th graders and is one I highly recommend. 

Chair Testing

7th graders should be finished up today. I heard a lot of great, well prepared students in my office this week. Bravo!!! 8th grade begins next Tuesday. 

Thank you all again for support. Go Band !!!
