Beginning Band

What a great week we had here in the Jaguar Den. I would like to take this time to remind parents of Beginning Band students that it is now time for your child to have his/her instrument . I am so excited as I see the instruments rolling into the band room.

This week we will begin playing as a band and I am SO EXCITED to here all the funny and awesome sounds that will come out of these instruments as we embark on this fabulous musical journey together. I say together because I will need the help of all of my students and especially you the parents/guardians. As we start out on this musical journey I am enlisting all parents/guardians to make sure that your child practices on their instruments at least 20-30 mins a day. I know this may seem like a lot of time but this will really help them to excel quicker and make them proficient in their craft.

Also, parents please be advise that the method book that we are using this year will be Sound Innovations for Concert Band. The cost of the book is around $9.00 plus tax. When go to buy the book please make sure that it has the name of the instrument that your child is playing on the book in the top right corner. Please fill free to email me with any questions or concerns.

Hello Jaguar Family,

The Band & Chorus students need your help! Once again this year we will be using Shoparoo to raise monies for the music program at MGLA. This is a very simple fundraising that does not cost you anything extra. Snap pictures of your receipts from any store, big or small, that sells grocery items to earn Roo Points (cash donations) for your school. Whether you’re shopping at a supercenter, dollar store, or local convenience store - it doesn’t matter where you shop or what items you buy - Shoparoo will make a cash donation for every receipt! Submit up to 20 grocery receipts within a rolling 7 day period. Snap pictures of your receipts from any restaurant or other retailer (that doesn’t sell grocery items) to earn entries for your school into Shoparoo’s $1,000 monthly sweepstakes and $15,000 yearly sweepstakes! Each receipt counts as an entry into both monthly and yearly sweepstakes, so spread the word at your school - the more receipts you submit, the greater your school’s chance is of winning. Please fill free to use the code on the flyer yeh37205 when you sign up. As I stated before last year we earned 40,420 Roo Points, which turn into $80.84 for the program. This year, since we are starting at the begging of the school I would like to triple our Roo points and the only way we can do this is if everyone gets on board and signs up and snaps there receipts.
