Reynolds Beginning Band

Week of Sept. 19-23

Ice Cream CONEnection today!!!

Remember we have our Ice Cream CONEnection social today after school for our Beginning Band students!! This will take place at Reynolds from 3:30-5:00pm. Please plan to pick them up promptly at 5:00pm from the Library Loop outside of the Band Hall. We are so excited to have some fun! Check our social media sites for pictures of the event this evening!!

Practice Records Due Tuesday!

Remember, practice records are due EVERY Tuesday! They must be signed by a parent or guardian in order to receive full credit. Students who earn an 80 or higher on all their practice records will be well on their way to earning a reward trip to Pin Stack in December!! Happy practicing!!

If your student has lost theirs, you may print another off of our band website, or pick up an extra in the Band Hall!

Band Project

The students were assigned a "History of Your Instrument" project this week in class. The purpose of this project is to help them learn a little about their instrument and to be able to present the information learned in an organized fashion. We want them to be as creative as possible! The best projects will be publically displayed. We hope they have fun putting this together while learning about their instrument! Projects will be due on Wed/Thurs in class next week.

All Instruments Going Home!

At this point, all students should be taking their instrument home with them regularly (tubas on the weekends). We have learned SO MUCH in the first four weeks of school, and our young musicians have plenty to practice. I strongly encourage them to schedule a regular practice time and location to develop a consistent habit. We appreciate you helping to encourage them in this endeavor!

We are excited about what we are doing in each of our classes and can't wait to show the students off to you at our Fall Concert on October 3rd!!
