Hudson Hawk Band Updates
Week of 8/2/21
You will receive a weekly Smore with updates for the band. Please make time to read through them and keep up with what we are doing and working on in class. You can always contact us with questions or concerns and we look forward to meeting with all of you soon!
See you on Monday!
**We will ALL bring instruments/band supplies for the first time on Tuesday, August 3.**
When students arrive at school in the morning (starting on Tuesday) they will come straight to the band hall to drop off their instrument and band binder. After putting their instrument in their locker, they will report straight to their 1st period class. If they are eating breakfast, they will make a stop at the cafeteria to pick up their food before going to their 1st period class.
**STUDENTS MUST BE WEARING THEIR SOAR CARD WITH THEIR BAND PASS INSIDE THE POCKET TO BE ALLOWED DOWN TO THE BAND HALL BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL.**
At the end of the day, students will come down to the band hall at dismissal to pick up their instrument and band binder to take it home and practice each night. If your student is a car rider, you are welcome to pick up your student in the back of the building, where the band hall exit is. **It is less crowded at pickup in the back - take advantage of being in the band!**
