Patrick Marsh Middle School Band

This Week in Band at PMMS (Sept 14-18, 2020)

Week One Went Well

Week One Went Well (say that ten times fast!) Thank you for your patience and support during our first week of online school! Your kids did a great job!


This week we will start band lessons. Hopefully, you all received an email reminder with your child's lesson time, day, teacher, and link.


A few lesson reminders:
1) Students should be warmed-up with their instrument and music ready prior to the beginning of the lesson. We have a full schedule and will need to stay on time.

2) Lessons are required. If your child cannot make it to a lesson, please contact us in advance when possible. We will do our best to reschedule the missed lesson.

3) The full lesson schedule can be found on our website: https://www.spbb.org/patrick-marsh-bands.html

Curious What We Are Working On?

If you are curious what we are working on in class or want to know what has been assigned for homework, you can find it all in our "Band Family Facing Document". The link to this document can also be found on our band website. I know all of these links get confusing...when in doubt, just go to our band website to find everything you need!

School Instrument Rental Fee

If your child is using a school instrument, you will see that fee applied to your child's account via Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Simply log into infinite Campus with your user name and password. Locate the "Payments" tab on the navigation bar along the left-hand side of the screen. You will be able to pay the fee online.

First Band Swag Sale Ends Sept 21

Our first Band Swag Online Store Sale will end on Monday, Sept. 21. The goal is to open this virtual clothing store a number of times each year introducing a few new items and logos each time.

Share Your Photos!

We love seeing photos of your kids participating in band from home! With your approval, we would love to share those photos on our Facebook Band Page or on future newsletters. If you have a great photo to share, send it to Chris at cpgleas@sunprairieschools.org. Thanks!

Where Can We Find Information About Band This Year?

TWO PLACES

1. This newsletter will be sent every Sunday afternoon. It will contain the plan for the week, updates on classwork, and special events or opportunities.


2. Our PMMS Band Website will have weekly lesson plans, resources, links, and our weekly lesson schedule. I will also keep links to all of our newsletters on this website if you ever need to look for something shared previously but lost it in your inbox. Consider the website as the "go to" place to find out information this year.
