Middle School Latest News
All bands are currently working on developing music for a Spring Concert.
Students, please have all your materials at your seat each rehearsal, which includes YOUR OWN MUSIC AND PENCIL at your seat each rehearsal; this will allow you to make marks on your music for improvement and the limiting of mistakes. Please also refrain from writing or leaning on the music stands.
We recently purchased twelve new music stands for middle school band use. Thank you to all who helped raise money through our Butter Braid Fundraiser.
Students have practice logs due each Friday. Please see the attached sheet for information.
