Beginning Band Update

Week of August 29th

Band Parent Orientation Meeting

Thanks to all who were able to attend last week. Please turn in any forms this week that you may have taken home with you to finish.

If you were unable to attend, your child was given all of the paperwork on Friday, August 26th. Please ask them to give it to you so you can read, fill out, and return this week.

We will be sending out reminders later in the week to those that are missing things.

If you purchased a booster membership, we will be giving out the car decals by the end of this week or right after labor day. If you ordered a new band uniform shirt, they will be here around Sept. 20th.

Fundraiser Has Started

Your child received all the information for the fundraiser on Friday during class. Below is the letter included in their packet of information. Remember that you do not have to participate. Those students who are using the fundraiser as a way to pay their band fees need to raise $80 in sales to make enough profit to pay their fees.

Fundraiser is due on 9/8/22.

Beginning Band Books

Please don't forget to get your Essential Elements Beginning Band Book for your child. We will be using them soon. You can get one from the local music stores or order them on Amazon.

Practice Records and Chromebooks

Students will be given a home practice record the week after labor day. They will be turning those in with a parent signature weekly. We are trying to build a culture of individual accountability for our band team.

Eventually they will also have some assignments to be recorded on their chromebook during class time. Students will not be taking chromebooks home.
