Good morning parents and students,
Welcome back to the start of the second half of the year. Do not forget that it is not the 2nd semester yet. You still have till Jan 22nd.
Guard—Please see guard schedule for your schedule this week.
Band- There are no band practices after school this week.
Band and Guard Assignments
All Band Guard assignments that were due before Christmas break will be accepted until this Friday (Jan. 8th). After Friday, they will stay in as zeros.
There will be a few more assignments for the 2nd nine weeks and most of those will be played in person in class.
All County Auditions
All wind ensemble students are required to audition or submit a recording to me for a grade for the all-county band audition. This is a requirement for receiving on honors credit your junior and senior year of band. Students that do not audition or submit a recording, will have the non-honors credit for band instead. Please see the team’s pages for the required etudes and scales. Please note the audition submission requirements, the practice and concert days as well. You need to notify me ahead of time if you can not make any of the days or do not want to participate in it.
Solo and Ensemble
All students are highly encouraged to participate in this activity. Details about how solo and ensemble will be given out very soon. Solo and Ensemble dates are moved to the end of February. I believe that all solo and ensemble judging will be done virtually.
Concert MPA and Jazz MPA
Concert MPA will be a recorded activity here at the high school and then will be sent to judges for assessment. Dates for all of this will be sent out soon.
Guard Fees and Band Fees
At this point, you should be completely done with payments. If you are behind on payments please get them in as soon as possible. If you already setup an extended payment option, please refer to your agreed upon payments dates. Booster parents will be contacting parents soon to discuss any missing payments. Please be kind and courteous to them as they are volunteering their time to help the program.
