Make sure you've checked the calendar and are aware of the mandatory Winter Concerts on Monday 12/15.  Parents, please make sure your child has nice, all black shoes, long black socks, and nice black pants.

Beginners will receive their polo shirt for the uniform on Monday, the 15th at school.

Call time for the concert for Jazz Band and Beginning Band students is 5:30pm in the gym.  Their concert will begin at 6pm and should be over by 6:45pm.  At that time there will be an intermission to reset the band set-ups. Beginners are not required to stay for the second half of the concert, but are HIGHLY encouraged to do so. The Call Time for Intermediate and Advanced Bands is 6:30pm in the band room (unless they are in the gym watching the first half...those students will just go to the band room immediately at intermission). The second half will begin at 7pm and and should be finished by 7:45pm.  Please allow students to stay for approximately 15 minutes after the concert to help stack chairs and stands.

Beginner students should be bringing their instruments home everyday now.  Please make sure students have nametags on their cases.
