Clark High School Band
We are almost there and there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Only 8 more school days until our well deserved Winter Break (4 of which are half days due to semester exams)!!
Our Winter Concert will be on Tuesday, December 12. Students should be in their place for warm-ups and tuning to begin promptly at 6:30 pm. The concert will begin at 7:00 pm. Formal Concert Black attire required for all students.
Instrument inspections will be on Thursday, December 14 during all band classes. This is our semester exam. Before the Thanksgiving break I sent home a list of supplies that each brass and woodwind student must have prior to instrument inspections and what proper formal concert black attire consists of. Please do not wait until the last minute to make sure that each student has what they need. -5 points for each supply not in class on the day of inspection and -20 points per day that an instrument is not cleaned properly. Students who play marching sousaphone, baritone and any doublers should clean their marching instrument. These students have been told that they can begin bringing these instruments for inspection on Monday.
Have a GREAT week!!
