2020 Marching Band Update

A Note from Mr. H.

I hope everyone has weathered these last few months. I have missed working with you in person and seeing your growth as young people and musicians in the classroom. There are lots of questions about the fall and this update shares with you what we currently have know. Please be flexible as things can always change based on what the CDC, state government and school district decide is in the best interest of the safety of our community.

Drum Majors will be announced next week. Leadership will be selected during band camp. Students interested in being on leadership should begin checking the leadership page and band remind (listed below) early to mid-July for more information on the selection process.

In light of the economic uncertainty, the current hardships that many in our community are experiencing, next year's budget has been reworked and the fair share will be $100.00. More information about that will be coming as we get closer to the beginning of school year.

Students returning in the fall can keep their sheet music and equipment with them for the summer, they need to fill out the summer checkout form by clicking here. Information on returning equipment for other students will be posted in Skyward and Teams when it is available.

Students need to select one of the following scales: Concert G or C and one of these scales: Concert Ab or Db. Students will then play the etude posted in Charms.

Anyone who has any questions about this can message me in Teams or contact me via e-mail. Students can submit audition material from 5/21-5/31.
