Carowinds Online Payment/Holiday Practice

Good afternoon,

Here is the link to pay the Carowinds downpayment/commitment fee if you would like to pay online.

I am asking that all students make arrangements to bring their instruments and music home this Friday so that they can practice a little bit over break. I want for the students to rest and enjoy their time off but I also want for them to have a successful concert on December 5th. I have a few extra instruments for the tubas if they absolutely cannot bring their horn home on Friday since they ride the bus. Let me know if you need help making arrangements.

There will be an optional District Honor Band practice on Monday the 20th from 11AM-noon here at the Junior High. If you are still in town and would like for your kid to get some help for their audition then I will be here.

The date of the actual audition is December the 2nd and our school is slotted to go around 1PM for their auditions. I plan on having a lead chaperone guide the students on that day since I am required to be at the event all day as a judge. If you are interested in leading that small trip to the auditions please let me know. You would load the students on the bus, take roll before leaving, sign them in at the school, let them warm up and audition, then stop for some food on the way home. If you are interested it would help me tremendously. The school if gracious in offering a bus to and from the auditions so I hope that we can take advantage of it instead of each kid having to figure out their own ride.

Let’s have a great week and get the Carowinds money turned in for those 8th graders!
