Your students should have brought home an order form for polos - either that or they will receive them from me tomorrow. These polos will be the shirt that students will need to wear with black pants for all concerts and similar events. It will be a black performance polo with a logo for the music department embroidered on the side.
Students in the 5th and 6th grade bands will not be required to purchase a polo since they will likely outgrow it before next year. The requirement of a shirt will only apply to those in grades 7-12.
I am attaching a copy of the order form to this post. The cost is $20. As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
Here is a link to the February Newsletter. I know some of your students will not bring it home! Please note the dates for the upcoming concerts and the information about ordering polos for concert attire.
Hello parents and students! Here is your February update!
Concert Band: Though we are still working on concert music, we are going to take a step back to some basics. I have asked students to bring their Essential Elements book 1 to school if they still have it. I know this may be frustrating to some students, however, there are many basic musical skills that simply were not reinforced in the past that are preventing our band from moving forward. So, please encourage your student to see past the current struggles to what the band will soon be!
6th Grade Band: We are continuing to work on concert music. We will be reviewing some of our basic concepts over the next few weeks as well. Just to make sure we are all on the same page.
Beginning Band: The February Calendar is attached at the end of the post. Please note the change in a couple of the groupings! We will be continuing to work hard and by the middle of March will have our first rehearsal as a full group! How exciting!
Concert Choir: The Choir is doing a great job learning music for the next concert. They are working hard learning how to read music better and, in turn, be better musicians. Just for fun: ask them what solfege is!
Please note that the next concert date is tentatively set for March 6th at 3 pm. This concert will include bands and choirs (minus the 5th grade band).
