Week 8 Words from Mr. Wood

We are going to continue to focus on auditions (link), but be sure to check out our information regarding other end of year procedures below. We miss making music in person and hope you all have a great week!

Student Check Out Form- Please take time to fill out the form below. It will help guide us as a band staff regarding instrument check-in and closing out the year information. If you have any questions please let me know. We are asking that every student/family in the program fill out this form by Wednesday 5/13 as it impacts our district mandated instrument collection day on Monday 5/18. Thank you.
