Berrien Springs Band News

Welcome Back (again!)
I am going to operate under the assumption that the HS will have an Even day tomorrow (Monday) since we still have to finish 6th hour/8th hour HS exams. HS Band students will need their CHROMEBOOKS and their INSTRUMENTS tomorrow (Monday)
Middle School Students, the schedule for the week is:
7-12 grade Parents, we need your help. With the unexpected weather break, we have lost an entire week of rehearsals. Both band and choir have Festival coming up. Festival is similar to a state standardized test that your students take - except we perform for a panel of judges. Here's what we need your help with: We need your student to PRACTICE their instrument at home. PLEASE! We can only do so much during the school day, especially when we have alternating schedules with choir. Ask your students what their music is, and have them play a bit for you.
We will also be asking for an extra set of rehearsals either after school or in the evening coming up to help the students prepare. We also will need the extra time to put the 8th grade bands and 7th grade bands together (since they are all in different classes). As soon as we get the information about those extra rehearsals ready, we will notify you immediately.
