Announcements and News

Message from the Directors

All of the students are working hard in class and on the field. Please remember the following:

  • Grades are important. Please make sure your student is in class and keeping up with all of their assignments.
  • The first round of All State tryouts will take place in January. The audition is digital. The cost is $30 per student and money should be turned into Mr. Newman.
  • In preparation for virtual concerts, all bands will begin after school rehearsals so that we can hear all of the students performing together.
  • Students will be screened in for afternoon rehearsals: temperature check and questions. If in brass/woodwind sectionals, students will be outside. For full ensemble, we will be in the commons 6+ feet apart with masks on anytime the student is not playing.
