Music Department Update Fall '15

Questions? Comments? Email me!

Welcome Back!!

Can you believe we are almost half way through the first marking period?!?

Friendly Band reminders:

  • Band Students have Practice Log Homework due every 2 weeks. They need to come before or after school for 20 minutes and practice in the band room. I sign off on their practice. Please monitor Genesis for updated grades.
  • Any band student using a school instrument owes $30 for a year long rental. Cash or Check payable to the KHS Student Activity Account is appreciated.
  • Polos have been ordered. There was a mistake on the embroidery, so we are waiting for them to come back again. If you are purchasing a polo, it is $16 cash or check to KHS Student Activity Account.
  • Attendance at Football games is a requirement for band. If your student misses a game, there is an alternate assignment posted the following Monday. They have 5 days to complete the assignment.
  • Please continue to monitor grades in Genesis. A student failing ANY class will NOT be permitted by administration to attend any field trips.
  • I am accepting any of the following donations: cases of water, full size candy bars (for our candy sale in November), items or gift cards to raffle off at the concert, and snacks to sell at events.

Thank you for your support!
