Advanced Band students going to Disneyand:
Another fundraiser will begin Jan. 22. It's a candy bar sale. Their are 60 bars in a box. Sell all 60 and the students will receive $30 into their band account. Every box that is checked out will have to be sold in its entirety.
We are looking for some chaperones for the Disney trip! Please email Mr. Reid if you are interested!!
NEW!! PRACTICE CHARTS!! Every student is expected to print a practice chart for every week and turn in every Monday for a formative grade.
Parents: Please make sure your band student is the only one handling the instrument. Younger (and older) brothers/sisters love to mess with instruments. They look like they're indestructible but THEY ARE NOT!
BRASS STUDENTS: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE VALVE OIL (OR SLIDE CREAM FOR TROMBONES) AND SLIDE GREASE.
The $40 band fee was due Sept. 1.
