Hudson Hawk Band Updates
Week of 8/8/22
You will receive a weekly Smore with updates for the band (usually on Sundays). Please make time to read through them and keep up with what we are doing and working on in class. You can always contact us with questions or concerns and we look forward to meeting with all of you soon!
See you on Monday!
**We will ALL bring instruments/band supplies for the first time on Tuesday, August 9th.**
When students arrive at school in the morning (starting on Tuesday) they will come straight to the band hall to drop off their instrument and band binder. After putting their instrument in their locker, they will report straight to either the cafeteria to eat breakfast or to the big gym if they are not eating.
**STUDENTS MUST BE WEARING THEIR SOAR CARD WITH THEIR BAND PASS INSIDE THE POCKET TO BE ALLOWED DOWN TO THE BAND HALL BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL.**
At the end of the day, students will come down to the band hall at dismissal to pick up their instrument and band binder to take it home and practice each night. If your student is a car rider, you are welcome to drop off and pick up your student in the back of the building (near door #11), where the band hall exit is. **It is less crowded at pickup in the back - take advantage of being in the band!**
When we begin sectionals with the Honors Band and Wind Symphony students, the band hall will open at 7:50am. That will begin the 3rd week of school. Until that time, the band hall will open at 8:15am.
Shirt Sizes THIS WEEK!
If you would like to order EXTRA shirts (for parents, siblings, etc.), we will have a form to fill out next week, after our shirt design has been solidified.
WE HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ALL STUDENTS TO USE A LOCK!
If you would like to use your own lock, you are free to do so. You will need to provide the band directors with a copy of the key or the combination if you choose to use your own lock.
Band Binder Distribution
**ALL REQUIRED BAND HANDBOOK FORMS AND A 2022-2023 PERFORMANCE CALENDAR IS IN THE HANDOUT SECTION OF EVERY BINDER.** The calendar has already changed slightly since we copied them and put them in the binders. You can always find the most up-to-date version of the calendar on the band website.
These forms are due by Friday, August 26 for a grade.
