Sixth Grade Band Bulletin
Happy Spring Break
We are right in the middle of a very busy time for the band. This newsletter focuses on the upcoming events and assessments.
I hope you have had a wonderful Spring Break. If you are traveling, please travel safe. I'm just returned from sunny Arizona. It was nice getting away and seeing the Cubs. I think this is our year!
As always, please contact me with questions.
Hoagie Sale Going on Now!!
If you are not familiar with this traditional fundraiser, it is now in its 34th year.
The great part about this fundraiser is that it benefits the Buffs (they can buy us new instruments), it benefits the students (students earn a $1 Buffs Buck for each Hoagie they sell), and they are delicious!
All RMS Sales are done online. If you know people who may be interested, they can go to the online form and order hoagies. They just enter your child's name. Your child gets credit!
Here is the website:
Here is the RMS Letter from the buffs
The Sale Ends Friday, April 8!
New Spring Concert Date
The new date May 16th. The time of the concert is still 7:30pm. It is still located at RMS.
Students who want additional help can simply ask me for help, and I will be glad to help them before or after school.
