Two quick announcements:
1) Materials Inspection this Friday 9/30 during all classes. This will be for a grade.
Since I announced this assignment today I have had several students ask where to get the supplies. For 7th and 8th graders, these materials were due on Sept. 12 and for 6th graders they were due on Sept. 21. Please know that I have gone through the list with the students very thoroughly in class over many days. What will not be needed for the inspection is the home music stand and metronome tuner or app, though all students should have these at home. We also went through the supplies list during curriculum night and the short band parent meeting afterwards. In case the list has been misplaced, you can find the list here at discoverybands.org and please call or email with any questions so we can be ahead of problems that occur, not behind them.
2) MSBOA Solo and Ensemble checks/money orders are due on Monday, October 3 (7th and 8th grade only). However, students may turn in their checks at any time between now and Monday.
If you have any questions about these announcements please contact me and thank you so much.
