Great First Concert!

What a great first concert!! Mrs. Haraldson and I are so proud of how well the students performed and behaved. Everyone was at their best. Thank you for getting your children to the concert and supporting their efforts! Many thanks also to Mrs. Rockman, Mr. Mesner, Mr. McVeigh, Mr. Davison, Mr. Rush, Mrs. Rush, Mrs. Terhune, and Mr. Weyer for all of the help.

Patrick Marsh Middle School Fall Band Concert 7:00

7th Grade Jazz Starts This Thursday - Updated Information.

7th Jazz will begin this Thursday, October 14th at 7:00 AM.


NEW INFORMATION:

Until December Full Jazz Rehearsals will only take place on Thursday mornings. (Mrs. Haraldson will work with new jazz saxophonists on Tuesdays)


PREVIOUS INFORMATION:

Rehearsals will begin right at 7:00 AM sharp. Parents/Guardians will need to drop off their child in the morning. Door# 7 (turn around door) will open at 6:50 AM and closed at 7:10 AM on Jazz mornings.


Jazz will have three main performances –

  • Middle School Jazz Fest - Friday, February 18.
  • Swing Into Spring Jazz Concert - Friday, April 8
  • 5th grade visit performance- May during the school day.
  • Opportunities to perform elsewhere may come up and will be communicated in advance.

If a student is unable to attend a rehearsal, a phone message or email as a reminder is helpful. If a student misses more than two rehearsals/sectionals or comes late to rehearsals without an excuse, the student may be asked to not participate in the jazz program. Although Jazz is an optional offering, students in jazz must make a commitment to attend all rehearsals and performances. Students need to also commit to practicing this music outside of jazz rehearsals.


Yours In Swing….
