Band Holiday Party THIS FRIDAY

**Instead of charging admission to the party, we are asking for each student to please bring canned goods, new socks, or toiletries for donation. All band students are invited regardless of donations.**

Our annual band holiday party is on Friday, December 6 from 5:30-7:30pm. Students will need to leave campus that afternoon and return when the party starts. We will have crafts, movies, games, snacks, and an ugly sweater contest!

We will need a few parent chaperones - please email Mrs. Becker if you are interested in helping.

Advanced Bands Holiday Concert

Thursday, Dec. 12th, 7pm

3901 Miles Road

Sachse, TX

All Advanced Band students will participate in our holiday concert at Sachse HS. A detailed information sheet can be found HERE.

We will be working with the 8th grade basketball coaches to ensure our students can participate in both the games and the concert that evening. More info for those students to come soon.

The call time for the concert is 6:20pm at Sachse HS and students will be expected to stay until the end of the concert to watch their peers. Part of our curriculum is teaching audience etiquette, so students receive a grade for the participation as an audience member.

The Beginner Band students will perform the holiday concert on Monday, December 16 at Sachse HS.
