Hello, hello, hello!
May is upon us - which for most might mean the school year is near the end, but for band, it's the month that restarts our marching band life!
Our 2017-2018 Marching Eagles Informational Meeting is Tuesday, May 2nd in the CM Auditorium at 7pm. It shouldn't last longer than thirty minutes or so, but it is highly important for you to be there to receive the necessary information for next year.
On Thursday, May 18, we will have our beginning band instrument rental night. We had this back in August for the current year's fifth graders, but we are having it in May this year for next year's fifth graders! If your child is interested in helping out, that would be wonderful!
We will be having a FUNdamentals camp this year for freshmen and sophomores on June 20-21. It will be from 8am-12pm and we will be focusing on marching and the music for the field show.
Band camp is July 31-August 4 from 8am-5pm.
Student leaders - please be aware of our meetings! They are required of you. If attendance and communication are issues, you will no longer be a student leader.
The next two weeks are concert weeks and then we start prepping for the Memorial Day Parade!
