Important Announcements for Friday and more

Good afternoon,

Last night was incredible! What a great way to start off the year. The students were very professional and played beautifully. Thank you so much for supporting your students and their hard work. Please know that your help cleaning up afterwards was also appreciated.

Our next concert is December 11th at 7 PM

Veteran’s Day Performance

This Friday our 8th grade band will perform in a special ceremony for a majority of the school day. They will perform for every ceremony listed below except for the high school ceremony. If you would like to attend you are more than welcome to! (Initially I was told this performance was on Monday the 12th. The date had changed was changed and I was accidentally left off of that email. I apologize for the confusion!)

8th Grade will check in with homeroom and will ride a bus over with me to the high school gymnasium around 8:15. If your student comes later that day then they will walk over with their homeroom.

8th graders will wear their concert attire and will be fed Subway at lunch. I could use around 8 volunteers at the high school band room lobby at 10:30. Please email me if you are available to help serve food. 

9:00 – 9:55    CJHS
10:15 – 11:10   CMS
11:15 – 11:45   Lunch for 8th grade students
12:15 – 12:45   CES program #1

District Honor Band

Each Wednesday from now until the audition we will have after school sessions with our high school band students joining us. They will work with your kid individually and give them extra guidance leading into the audition.

Auditions are December 1st at Excel Christian Academy. I will bus your students to and from that event and they will stop for lunch on the way back. Please keep that date open on your calendar. More detailed times to come soon! Keep encouraging your kid to practice. Participating in District Honor Band looks incredible on high school transcripts going into college.
