Band Assessment = March 2016  The week of the 14th.  I will know more after the year begins.  We will perform in Lexington at Singletary Center for the Arts during the day.  I would love fore everyone to try and come for this event.  We usually play during the school day and then parents may take their children home from Lexington or provide a ride at the school when we get back.

Starry Night = April 2016.  I will not know the date until the first of 2016.  We will have a short rehearsal until 4:30 on the Friday before at the high school audiorium and then will warm up at 6:00Pm that Saturday night and perform at 7:00PM.  Students will be allowed to leave following the performance.  This is a district requirement and students are expected to be there.

I will send this home with students in the first week of school.  Please make sure you put it on your calendars.

Failure to attend and perform in these events and fulfill your band obligation will result in not being allowed to go to Gatti-town at the end of the year.

I would also like everyone to sign up for REMIND. (I will send information on it the first week of school.  This is another way for me to get information to you about our band.  Many students do not bring information home.  I will only send notices out for concerts that is coming up, a permission slip that needs to be signed or when the fundraiser products are coming in.  Please ask them about it.

8th Grade Band Students - I plan to create a Christmas Band for performances at nursing homes in town during December.  We will need to rehearse a few times in November.  This is a great way to get Beta Club hours and it is important to perform for these folks who need to see young people doing great things.  I will speak with you more as the year goes on.

7th and 8th Grade Band Students- I will also need help with sixth grade beginners this year.  I will let you know when we start staying after.  Beta Club students will also be allowed to count these hours for volunteer as well.

LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT YEAR!!!!!!
