AEB Weekly 12/4/17 to 12/10/17

W. Charles Akins High School Band - Austin, TX

Congrats on a great showing at the TMEA Region 18 Band Auditions! Click below for results!

Excellent Job Hosting Region Auditions!

We received nothing but rave reviews on your hard work hosting the Region Band auditions! AEB Directors are so proud of the hard work of our parents and students in hosting students, parents, and directors from the entire Austin area!

Continue to Check Sectional & Ensemble Rehearsal Schedules Weekly!

All students are responsible for checking the website calendar for full ensemble and sectional times on a regular basis.

Schedules are subject to change weekly and "I didn't know" is never a valid reason for missing a sectional or rehearsal. We do our best to keep changes to a minimum, but there are always some unforeseen adjustments that need to be made.

All Accounts Must Be Brought Current Immediately!

There is a significant amount of money that is currently owed on Band Fees.

Please, please, please take a look at your CHARMS account to see what money is owed and settle your account balance this week.

Directors will be calling home to work out payments this week...we must settle all accounts ASAP!
