Memorial Day Parade Information - Monday, May 30
Band in the United States started as marching bands (specifically, military marching bands). It is part of our heritage and a great experience for young musicians. On Monday, May 30 we get the opportunity to pay tribute to our veterans and our nation by marching in the Memorial Day Parade. **This is a mandatory event for 7th Grade Band Members who are in town. 6th Graders are not required to march, but can if they are interested.
**We understand that this is a holiday and that many families have plans out of town, etc. We do not expect you to change your family's plans. However, if you are in town it is important to have your child participate.
Here are the specifics:
Time? Parade Starts at 10:00 AM. All band members need to report to the main entrance
area of CHUMS by 9:30 AM. ***Mrs. Haraldson will have Door #9 and the band room at PMMS open starting at 9:00 AM on Memorial Day if you want to get your instrument or forget something.
Route and Pick Up? The parade begins at CHUMS and ends at Walker/Main Street near the Public Library. Parents please meet us in Public Library Rear Parking Lot immediately after the parade! We recommend that parents park in the rear parking lot of the library and walk back up the parade to see/hear the band.
Uniform? Black Band shirt, black pants, black socks and shoes (no shorts or sun glasses)
Important! Remember to leave instrument case in your parent’s car when you meet at CHUMS. You will just need your assembled instrument.
School Instrument Turn-in Day PLUS Rental Information
All school instruments and supplies need to be returned to the PMMS Band Room no later than Tuesday, May 31. We need to inventory all of the school owned instruments on this day.
Instruments will be reissued to current 6th graders by Tuesday, June 7th. Current 7th Graders using school instruments should contact Mr. Mesner or Mr. Melrose about getting an upper middle school instruments.
IF YOU ARE RENTING from Ward Brodt or another music store we would encourage you to keep your instrument over the summer if you are continuing in band next year. In fact, if your child is continuing in band now is a good time to consider purchasing an instrument. Let us help you though!! There is A LOT of junk out there!
If you are renting but not continuing instruments should be given to one of us the last two days of school. However, the only way we will know that an instrument is going back is if your child gives us the instrument (we will not send it back without them telling us to...otherwise we will ask them to take it home).
