First UIL Rehearsal for Virtual Students

Monday, Jan. 25th, 4:15-5:30pm

4405 Hudson Drive

Sachse, TX

Virtual students in Wind Symphony and Honors Band who have signed up to participate in the UIL performances will have their first IN-PERSON rehearsal tomorrow. Please drop off in the BACK of the school and have students enter directly into the band hall through the door with the platform. Students will have their temperature taken before being allowed to enter. ALL STUDENTS MUST WEAR MASKS! We will provide students with bell covers and special masks to wear while playing instruments as well. Don't forget your instrument and band binder/music!

Pickup will also be in the BACK of the school, outside of the band hall. We can't wait to see you!!!

It's never too late to get started in private lessons! If you want your student to catch up, get ahead, or just get more reinforcement, click below to sign up.

School-Owned Instrument Usage Fees

The $50 per year ($25/semester) fee charged by GISD for students who use a school-owned instrument (oboe, bassoon, bass clarinet, tenor sax, bari sax, French horn, euphonium, and tuba) has now been assessed to your student's Skyward account. The payment for the use of the school instrument is due by March 1, but can be paid online anytime now. You can use a credit card in Skyward or send cash/check (made out to Hudson Middle School) with your student to school. Further details about how to pay online will be sent soon for those who need extra help completing their payment.

**Occasionally, we have students that play other instruments, not listed above, who use a school-owned instrument. The fee has been assessed to those students as well.**

6/7 Grade Choice of Subject

Our current 6th and 7th graders should receive their Choice of Subject form for the 2021-2022 school year very soon. We wanted to point out that if your student has been struggling this year and hasn't been as excited about band, we WILL get back to "normal" band in the future. The way we've been forced to have rehearsals and concerts this year is atypical and not nearly as fun. If your student has been missing out on the football games, field trips, and contests, they are not alone! We hope that you will all continue in band next year and that we will get to enjoy all our favorite parts of being in band again very soon! Hang in there!
