Sandy Lake Reward Trip Info

We are preparing for our upcoming festival performance at Sandy Lake on April 26. The participating group will be comprised of students that have earned their way. All students must have completed their Pass-Off by Friday, April 13th. Please click HERE to get the details.

If your child has yet to pass off the required skill set they can submit via Google Classroom their pass off attempts or email it directly to your primary teacher by tomorrow at midnight. We will not review their submission until Monday. So their attempt should be their best/final attempt.

Mr. Davis:French Horn, Tuba/Euphonium, Trombone

Mrs. Brinkman: All Woodwind classes

Mr. Beaty: Trumpet

Mr. Crawford: Percussion

Required Rehearsal:If a student misses this rehearsal they lose the opportunity to go to Sandy Lake. We only have the oppotunity to rehearse twice and it is essential that we have 100% attendance to ensure a successful performance at Sandy Lake!!

We Need You!!

The Scoggins Middle School Band Booster’s are looking for people for next year’s Board. We need a President, a Treasurer ( a financial background is very helpful), someone to coordinate chaperones and volunteers, a Secretary, someone to handle spirit wear and someone for hospitality.

For the most part these are very easy jobs with a 45 minute meeting once a month and an additional hour or two commitment a month. (Our Treasurer usually works 4-6 hours a month, but may climb to 8-10 hours a month for fundraising or startup). This is a wonderful opportunity to be involved and informed! Come to our meeting this Wednesday to learn more! The meeting is in the Scoggins Band Hall at 6pm
