2018 MUSIC DEPARTMENT TRIP – Orlando, FL (April 2-7, 2018)
The next Music Department trip has been planned for spring break 2018. We now have a waitlist for the second bus. If you are still interested in traveling to Disney with the music department, please register to be placed on the waitlist. Once we have enough to formally open the bus, the waitlist will be lifted and you will be officially registered. Our hope is to lift the waitlist in the next couple weeks, but we need more participants to make that happen. We are looking forward to another great music experience for our musicians and families.

MARCHING BAND HELP NEEDED

MARCHING BAND PRACTICE REMINDERS
As we move forward with marching band season, please make every attempt possible to be at every practice for the scheduled time. Be sure to schedule appointments, work, and lessons outside of practice times as it is very difficult to learn and refine music and drill when individuals are missing. In addition, Mrs. Wickman should be notified in advance of any unavoidable conflicts to determine if the absence will effect the individual’s permission to perform that week. Absence due to sickness or emergency need to be communicated by a parent in a timely fashion.
All instruments must be properly stored after each practice. Instruments must be stored in cases (closed and latched) in lockers or the storage room. No instruments should be left on the floor or unsecured area. Drum line equipment must be in cases stored in the percussion room along with harnesses. Sousaphones must be stored in the percussion room. It is important to be sure all valuables are secured in a locker during marching band practice. Leaving items out in the hallway, in the band room, or in an unlocked locker is inviting theft. Please help remind each other to secure your items properly before heading to the practice field.
Marching Band members be sure to bring instruments, music, dot books, poker chips, and pencils to all practices. Since you will be going to practice after being in class all day, remember to bring appropriate clothes and tennis shoes for marching.
