Hello Band Family,
After reviewing many calendars here at Discovery and hearing from parents regarding scheduling conflicts, there is no evening that seems to work for rescheduling the band concert. While we do require mandatory attendance for the students for these planned dates on the calendar, a rescheduling due to weather is a little gray to say the least with regard to making this work for everyone.
Therefore, we will be having our rescheduled concert during the day. Specifically, we will begin the concert in the Auditeria on Monday, March 12 at 8:15am with the 6th/7th grade bands, I will then dismiss those grades to go to first hour, we will take a short pause and then begin with the 8th grade band at the beginning of first hour at approximately 8:40am. Students may wear normal school clothes for this concert.
I will take most “extras” out that I had planned so we can move the concert along in a timely fashion. Less talking on my part as well. 🙂
However, we will have our rep from the mattress company visiting us as they require a parent meeting (5-8 minutes) to do this fundraiser. They understand this is a “Plan B” scenario and they are good with this backup plan.
More info later on purchasing a DVD of this concert.
For all parents, if you can join us for this makeup concert please do so. The entrance/exit plan for this event is that parents will use the doors that face the drop-off loop as these doors lead directly into the Auditeria. Parents may park as they normally do for a concert and also on the side of the building by the tennis courts.
Many thanks for your understanding and patience as we explore options to make our students successful. Thanks so much and see you Monday!
