Directions to Singletary

Direction to Singletary Center for the Arts

Follow US 27 South to Lexington.  Go past Rupp Arena get into the left turning lane and turn Left onto Maxwell. (Wildcat Liquor store is at that light.)  Follow Maxwell until you get to Rose.  Turn Right onto Rose.  Singletary is the large building on the top right hand corner of the intersection.  You will more than likely see buses pulled in front.

Please make sure that you do not enter the auditorium when a band is playing.  Wait until they are finished and then you may enter.

We will sight read directly after our prepared section.  You will not be able to watch this portion. I will release students to you after I have gotten the scores.

You will need to walk with the band back to the buses to get their belongings, turn in their cumber bun, tie or crossover and sign them out with the bus chaperone.  You may only sign them out if you have turned in a note prior to leaving HCMS.

Thanks Julie Lucky

7th & 8th Grade Band Assessment

Dear Parents or Guardians,

Band Assessment is quickly approaching and the band is getting better.  I am excited about our music and hope that with student practice we can bring it together for a great performance. Their home practice will be the difference between a great performance and one that is not good.

Our mandatory band rehearsal will be Saturday March 12, 2016 at HCMS from 9AM-3PM. All students are expected to attend.  I am paying professionals to work with our students.  This will be the only time that our band will be able to play together before Assessment and it is an important rehearsal.  Pizza will be provided for lunch.  Students who do not attend the rehearsal and haven’t spoken to Mrs. Lucky will not go to band assessment and will not attend Gatti-town.

Our band will be performing Tuesday March 15, 2016 at 1:40PM at Singletary Center for the Arts in Lexington, KY.  I will send home directions.  I am hoping that parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts and uncles can come and see them perform.  Most parents try and take a half day off of work.  It is free!!!!!

I will need to know ASAP whether you are able to come and transport your child back home in your own vehicle that day.  The bus garage will need to send all but one bus back to run routes and it will cause us to get back later than planned.  We can do that but I have found that many adults go and then take their children home leaving only enough to fill that one bus.

The school policy states that I must have a written note that I will turn in to Mr. McIntire before the trip stating that you or a family member will be taking the child home from Lexington.  This note needs to be in by March 7, 2016.  Please start looking at your calendar and talking to your boss and see if there is any way to go and watch your child perform.  No problem if you can’t but we always have a good crowd and it is something special that you won’t want to miss.

Dress will be the same as the Winter Concert:  Black dress pants, white long sleeved dress shirts that buttons from bottom to top, dark socks, dark shoes, dark belt.  No tennis shoes. (Please let me know weeks ahead of time if you need help with this)

PARKING FOR MARCH 15, 2016

BAND ASSESSMENT

7th & 8th Grade Only

I have spoken to the UK Events Parking coordinator and she has given one option for parking.

Parents will need to pay at the parking structure on Limestone Ave.  $2.00 for the first hour.  The sight will have the charges after that.  Make sure you bring money for the garage.

I will send home a map that shows where the garage is located in relation to Singletary Center for the Arts.

You will be ticketed by UK parking if you park anywhere else on campus.

You may not park in the sections marked P on the map on the back like last year.  You must use the garage on Limestone. Sorry.

7th & 8th Grade Band

Dear Parents,

 

The Winter Concert was great!!!  Thanks for everyone’s efforts and thanks parents for encouraging your children to practice and get prepared!!!!

 

I’ve decided to scrap the practice journals this nine weeks and rely on student performance tests for grades.  Students were given a section of music when we got back from our break.  They were given a date and are expected to record this music in class on their assigned day.  I will listen to the recording after school and assign grades.  A new section will be assigned for the next week.

 

I am hoping that students will begin to practice more.  We have a lot of work to do before band assessment in March.  Possible snow days could put us behind so everyone needs to dig in and do a great job.

 

I’ve ask all students to take their instruments home every day in case we have a snow day.

 

I will be staying after school on Tuesdays for 6th grade woodwinds and Wednesday for 6th grade brass and percussion starting this week.  7th and 8th graders may stay on Thursdays for extra help.  We will finish at 4:30 and you can pick up your child in the front of the building.

 

I have also spoken to Don Wilson Music in Lexington and they will be selling fold up stands for practice.  They come in Black, Blue, Green and Pink.  You may send in 10.00 to order.  I will run it through the school account so you can make checks to HCMS.

Let me know if you would like to order one.

 

Check the dates for the rest of the year on the back of this letter.  We need to finish strong!!!!
