All morning rehearsals will resume next week, and start at 8:00 am. The room is always open by 7:45 am so kids have time to set up, do some personal warm-up and say hello to their friends.
Monday- Jr. Jazz Band
Tuesday- Grade 8 Band
Wednesday- Grade 9 Band
Thursday- Sr. Jazz Band
Morning rehearsals are mandatory for all band students and are necessary to help prepare our music on a continual basis. Band is a team sport, and works best when all team members are present!
MANDATORY BAND CAMP MEETINGAll students attending spring band camps need to have a parent representative at the Band Camp Parent Information Night. This is MANDATORY under CBE Off-Site Activities regulations for all overnight trips. Please attend our meeting on THURSDAY, APRIL 9TH at 7:00PM. I realise that this is also Parent Council meeting night and some of you are involved in both sessions. If you are involved in both meetings, please try to be present for your portion of the meeting.
After the meeting, I am required to either meet or talk on the phone with any parents that did not attend the meeting. As we have nearly 300 kids involved in band, even 90% attendance will still result in approximately 5 hours of contact time to catch up with all the parents unable to attend the meeting. Please do you best to be in attendance on the 9th in order for your child to attend our upcoming camps. Thanks in advance!COCO BROOKS ORDERS DUE Wednesday, April 1st, NO JOKE!
Our last fundraising opportunity of the year ends on Wednesday, April 1st. Please ensure orders and money are turned into Mrs. Shipley in the band office by end of day Wednesday. Once all orders have been processed, an update of your fundraising totals will be available by April 9th. We will email this information home and have it available at the parent meeting.
