By now you should have a handbook contract signed and returned. If you haven't received it or signed it yet, please ask your student. These need to be turned in by Friday. Any student using a school owned instrument needs to complete the instrument contract and bring in $20. This is to help cover a portion of the cost needed to maintain the instrument. If you have any questions, please email me!
Tomorrow is orientation!
3:30 to 4:30 is for 6th grade only. 4:30-6:00 is for 7th-12th grade.
Incoming 6th graders: If you are even remotely interested in band, please stop by at 4:30 to try out instruments and see what is the best fit for you. There will be band students there to answer any questions you may have, Ms. Cannell will also be there for more questions they may not be able to answer. Information on instrument purchase, rental and school loaned instruments will also be available. Hope to see you there!
7-12 Band Members:
Marion Days is quickly approaching! We will have a rehearsal on Thursday, August 4 at 6pm in the HS Band Room. I will have school owned instruments available, SOME reeds (order hasn't arrived yet) and music for the school song. Please note that We Will Rock You and Let's Go Marion are NOT written down. If this is something you need, I will pair you up with an upperclassman and they will work with you.
Incoming 7th Graders: You are more than welcome to join us for the parade, however, please be aware the music is a bit more difficult that you're used to. It's always a good idea to get your feet wet and do what you can with it. Don't be discouraged!
