Good Morning Everyone,
I want to connect with everyone as soon as I got the totals on “Tastes & Tunes XI” and here it is! We raised a total of $7,800.00 dollars with the event which is a fantastic total. I can’t thank everyone enough for the money we raised for the Band on that wonderful day. You guys went above and beyond the call of duty on that beautiful day to support our program and I cannot thank you enough for your support. A special thanks goes to Catherine Coats and Julianne Korn for spearheading the event for us as you guys hit a Home Run for the Band along with all of the volunteers who put their time to make the event a Big Success. Those of you who attended also contributed along with all of the Bands who played so well to make the day so special!
The Jazz Band scored two Excellent’s and one Superior Rating at the Southeastern Jazz Festival. I am proud of your efforts as I wait to hear about Outstanding Musicianship awards to come out. I will let you know when I hear something.
We have only 2 Band Events scheduled as we close out the year. Graduation is on Saturday, May 11 at 2:00 p.m. (time is tentative) and Band Awards on Thursday, May 16 at 7:00 p.m. in the Gym. Please plan on attending as every student in the Band Program will be recognized for the year on that evening.
The rehearsal schedule is as follows for the remainder of the year.
April 25, 30 and May 2: Marching Band after school (all students with Seniors Optional))
May 7 and 9th: Graduation Practice after school. (All Symphonic Students minus seniors)
We are still missing a few Band Uniforms and we need to have them turned on before school ends for the year. They can be washed on a cool cycle in your washing machine and dried in a drier on a cool cycle as well. Please do not return dirty uniforms.
“The Calendar listing the Upcoming Activities is full of new dates for you to familiarize yourselves with so please have a look.
Please remember to sign up for Donors Choose on their website and help support our band. That site has provided up with great help with our program with a donation of $600.00 worth of equipment already! We are looking forward to more help from parents in this free donation program!
I hope everyone has a restful Spring Break. We all earned it as we close out the school year!
