Announcements for the week

Good evening,

Here is the schedule for this week:

Monday: Optional DHB practice until 4:15

Tuesday: Optional DHB practice until 4:15

Wednesday: Optional DHB practice until 4:15

Thursday: Trojan Band Championship Game (Pick up time 7:30)

District Honor Band:

As I continue to balance conferences and working individually with our District Honor Band students I am providing three days out of the week for those who are auditioning to seek help and practice. Our conference schedule is much different this year and I am (for the first time) hosting conferences. Students may pick one day or stay for all three and work on their audition materials. We will focus on memorizing our scales and add in sight reading beginning this week. I appreciate your patience as I am balancing my different roles this year. If your student is auditioning it is imperative that you are hearing them practice at home. They should be working on four major scales, a chromatic scale, and a short piece of music as often as possible.

Trojan Band Championship

We are excited to host the championship this Thursday at Grisham Stadium! The students have asked to play for the entire game instead of just the first half. Students will still be fed at 6 PM and if they need to go home at that time they may.  Hopefully we can get most of them to stay the entire game to cheer on our Trojans to victory! Volunteers may contact me if they would like to help.

Fee Payment Form

You should have received a form if your student owes money for something in band. I appreciate your patience as I count thousands upon thousands of dollars each month. Our online Revtrak payment system is fantastic but often does not send me a receipt for your purchase. If I have missed something please notify me and I will correct it on my side. If you have missed something please work on paying off those fees at your earliest convenience.
