Spring Concert Info

The Spring Concert is THIS Tuesday, May 25 at Sachse High School in the auditorium. Student performers have received 2 tickets for the concert. Audience members MUST have a ticket to enter the auditorium. (Babies under the age of 2 who will sit WITH an adult do not need a ticket.) No exceptions can be made to this policy.

Students MUST wear their band t-shirt with jeans (or dark pants) for the performance. Audience members MUST WEAR MASKS (per GISD policy), will have their temperatures checked at the door, and must also follow the GISD Clear Bag policy. We will be clearing the auditorium between each performance and will not begin to allow the next audience group in until approximately 10-15 minutes before the scheduled performance time.


**If students do not have their band shirt, they will receive it after paying their $30 band fee for this year. If a student needs a new shirt because they have lost or outgrown theirs, those cost $10 (cash or check made out to Hudson Band Boosters).**

We will be taking inventory and sending school-owned instruments to the repair shop early next week. It is imperative that ALL school-owned instruments are returned this week.


6th and 7th graders who WILL be in band at HUDSON next year (and use a school-owned instrument) will receive another instrument before we are out for the summer so they can practice while we are out of school.

REMINDERS - REPEAT INFORMATION

Please Pay Instrument Usage Fees ASAP

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 was 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.**
