I hope your child has told you a little bit about the productive week we have had! It's been a hot, sweaty, RAINY, but beautiful week.
We have learned the first two movements of our 2016 field show - Latin Life. We know both the drill and the music and the kids have been giving me 150% every day (something that never goes unappreciated.)
Starting next Monday, August 8th, we will have marching rehearsals from 4pm-7pm (THIS WAS A MISTAKE ON THE ORIGINAL SCHEDULE. IT IS UNTIL 7PM.) From 4pm-5pm, we will focus on parades, so 8th graders will be required to be there. From 5pm-7pm, we will focus on the field show so 8th graders will be dismissed. However, this Monday will be slightly different: from 4pm-6pm will only be field rehearsal so 8th graders do NOT have to be in attendance. Starting at 6pm, we will have a parent/family preview. The kids will show you what they worked on last week!
If your child has to miss a rehearsal for ANY REASON, please email me the dates. Reminder that band IS a grade, so missing any rehearsal does effect them negatively. When school starts, we will talk about ways to make up those points.
Thank you and if you have questions, please ask me!
Updates will go out weekly to all band parents and students. If you're not receiving these updates, double check Ms. Davis has the most up-to-date email address for you!
