Fine Arts Festival and Marching Band

Posted: March 30, 2018 in Uncategorized

Good Friday to you all! The 6th Graders have the Fine Arts Festival coming up next week on Tuesday, here is everything you need to know:

  • Call time for the concert is 6:30. That does not mean students get there at 6:30, it means that they are siting in their seats with instruments out ready to tune and do last minute preparations.
  • The concert begins at 7:00
  • The students will be given a Fine Arts Festival T-shirt (which the $5 paid for), but they are expected to wear either jeans or khaki pants. If your student wants/needs and alternative pants option please have them run it by me first.
  • We will play four tunes including STAR WARS, for which they will be joined by the Red Band from the high school.

If your student is going into high school next year they have the opportunity to join the Marching Band or Color Guard. Marching band has been a huge part of my life and some of my best memories are from the activity, which without I would not be doing what I am doing today. I have handed out to a few students the marching band commitment form, which they are to return to me by April 5th with a $25 installation fee. I would highly encourage your kids to join the band. If you have not seen a marching show before, it is unlike any other. For some students marching band is the reason they stay in school but it is one of the most rewarding experiences you can gain from high school.

Thank you all so much for your students. They are a pleasure to work with every day and I am looking forward to continue working with them next year. Have a happy Easter weekend!
