Next week there will be leadership meetings for the 2016 Spirit of '76. Mr. Becker has scheduled the meetings for Tuesday, May 10 at 2:30-3:30, Thursday, May 12 at 2:30-3:30 and Wednesday, May 18th 1:30-2:30 pm. Additional meetings may be announced, interviews will be conducted in June. If you are interested in being a drum major, you need to speak to Mr. Becker and talk about meeting times.


After our concert, we will spend our time doing inventory, turning in music and throwing away broken stuff. The final exam will be to perform the Great Hands for a Lifetime at 120 bpm. The 3rd block final is Tuesday, May 17 from 9:45-11:40 am.


You should have received a list of important dates in your Spirit Notes. Band Bar-B-Que is June 6 and rehearsals start June 8. As things come up over the summer, I'll send more out. We ask that if you are not able to attend a rehearsal, you let us know.
