Inventory Assessment- please read!

Every student that has a school owned instrument at home needs to bring that instrument to school and keep it at school starting on the day of the concert- May 18th. This will allow for us to have enough time to check in all instruments before doing our assessment and re-checking out instruments for the summer.

Students that are attending high school band at Birdville HS, and use a school owned instrument should be receiving more information about HS instrument check out next week- details are coming soon!
