Year End Band Schedule Take 2

WALKER

Sadly . . .

the week following our spring concert on May 6th, my responsibilities turn towards the 4th grade class preparing them for band recruitment. May 1st will be their last small group lesson during the day. It's always hard for me to turn my current 5th graders loose after all of their progress and to think about starting all over again!


By the way, I know that May 1st is also the kids' Slave Simulation and have worked their lessons around it so they won't miss anything. We WILL have 7:45 am as well.

additional performance added - june 1st during school


I am happy to report that the CHMS Symphonic Band will be doing a playing tour of the elementary schools on Monday, June 1st. The Beginners will get an opportunity to perform at this assembly as well. The Walker Assembly will be at 12:45 pm. Experience tells me we will need a rehearsal to keep everything fresh so we will meet on Friday, May 29th at 7:45 am with instruments. The kids are excited about the chance to play this music again for their classmates & teachers.

Band Breakfast

Friday, May 22nd - 7:45 am - no instruments but please bring band binder


We will have a light bagel, cream cheese, strawberry and water breakfast (ingredient list provided below). In addition, we will watch a video of their performance, make purchases from the pot of gold and talk about some things they can practice at their leisure over the summer.
