Virtual Student UIL Commitment Form

If your student is in Wind Symphony or Honors Band and they are virtual, please fill out THIS FORM to let us know whether or not they will be performing with the combined band for the UIL Concert & Sightreading Evaluation this year. We will be participating virtually, by recording our band performance all together and sending the recording to the judges to watch. There are some required after school rehearsals involved, where all COVID protocols will be followed. Safety is our first priority.

The first after school rehearsasl for VIRTUAL STUDENTS ONLY will be on January 25 from 4:15-5:30pm in the band hall.

This form is due Tuesday, January 12!

6/7 Grade Choice of Subject

Our current 6th and 7th graders should receive their Choice of Subject form for the 2021-2022 school year next week. We wanted to point out that if your student has been struggling this year and hasn't been as excited about band, we WILL get back to "normal" band in the future. The way we've been forced to have rehearsals and concerts this year is atypical and not nearly as fun. If your student has been missing out on the football games, field trips, and contests, they are not alone! We hope that you will all continue in band next year and that we will get to enjoy all our favorite parts of being in band again very soon! Hang in there!

It's never too late to get started in private lessons! If you want your student to catch up, get ahead, or just get more reinforcement, click below to sign up.

School-Owned Instrument Usage Fees

The $50 per year ($25/semester) fee charged by GISD for students who use a school-owned instrument (oboe, bassoon, bass clarinet, tenor sax, bari sax, French horn, euphonium, and tuba) has now been assessed to your student's Skyward account. The payment for the use of the school instrument is due by March 1, but can be paid online anytime now. You can use a credit card in Skyward or send cash/check (made out to Hudson Middle School) with your student to school. Further details about how to pay online will be sent soon for those who need extra help completing their payment.

**Occasionally, we have students that play other instruments, not listed above, who use a school-owned instrument. The fee has been assessed to those students as well.**
