My name is Ms. Menendez and I am thrilled to have been named director of bands at Carrollton Junior High School. I assume that I am speaking to many familiar faces but in case I am not, I am coming from across the street from the Middle School after three wonderful years there. I am humbled to have been given the opportunity to work in a program that I admire with students that I have grown to love! As we get closer to the school year I will post a few reminders so that we are good to go on day one. I would like to play a little on the first day after going through our handbook. Just remember that all students need a 1/2 black binder with plenty of sheet protectors.
I want to clarify that any student who wants to be in band may be in band regardless of a lack of previous exprience or financial reasons. I promise that if a student wants to join our program or continue being in it that there is a spot for them. Ask your students to recruit their friends. I can get any schedule switched to allow someone to join our band classes.
