News From the Band Room


Week #13

Hi Folks - We are closing in quickly on the end of November/beginning of December. That means Fall Play, Myerstown Holiday Parade, and the annual Band Booster Craft Show on December 1st.

This weekend, the fall play, Play On, will be presented in our high school auditorium. The shows are Friday and Saturday at 7pm. Each year the band boosters are in charge of concessions for the fall play. You should have received a link to sign-up to volunteer. Even if it is just for one of the two nights, your help is greatly appreciated.

Next Saturday, November 24th, the band will be performing in the Myerstown Holiday Parade. Please remember your student will need a Santa hat for the parade to wear with their band uniform.

On December 1st the Band Boosters will be hosting the annual Band Booster Craft Show at the high school. This is a big fundraiser for the boosters. Please click on the button below for more information and please share on your social media. If you would like a yard sign to help advertise, please contact Michelle Hitz

Also, on December 1st, seven of our band students will be auditioning for the PMEA District 7 Upper Band festival to be held at Chambersburg High School January 24-26, 2019.

If your band student is interested in participating in the LLMEA County Band Festival, a Google Form was posted on their Schoology page. Deadline to sign-up is November 30th. The festival will be held at Garden Spot High School on January 19, 2019. Students MUST be available for the entire day of the festival to participate and parents are required to attend and take their child home at the conclusion of the concert. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Thanks and have a great week!
