Here are the report times for students
for Thursday’s Spring Concert. As a reminder, these student report times/timeliness are also part of the student’s grade. All students will be in concert dress attire which has been communicated with parents and students.
Here are the report times for students for the concert:
-6th grade: Please be on the stage with instruments by 6:15pm.
(not arriving at that time, but fully ready to play with all materials). We will rehearse with you, take attendance, and we will review dress attire as part of the student’s grade)
-7th grade: Be ready to play and tuned in the band room by 6:30pm.
(not arriving at that time, but fully ready to play with all materials). We will rehearse with you, take attendance, and we will review dress attire as part of the student’s grade. Make sure to warmup and tune!)
-8th grade: Be ready in the choir room by 6:45pm with instruments ready to play (not arriving at that time, but fully ready to play with all materials). We will rehearse with you, take attendance, and we will review dress attire as part of the student’s grade. Make sure to warmup and tune!)
NOTE: Concert dress code for band members is the black band uniform (all black except white t-shirt underneath band polo). Please review prior emails or the band website (red folder) or the files section of our band Facebook group page for further details.
NOTE: For all attendees of the concert, doors will not open until 6:45pm. Bucks for Band donors wearing their donor button will be allowed to enter earlier. For any attendees with medical or mobility issues, please feel free to enter early. All others will need to wait patiently in the hallway until the doors open.
We are still in need of chaperones for 6th and 7th grade if you are willing to help our students (8th grade is good). Let Mrs. Peck and I know if you are interested as this is an important need. Her email address is listed at the top of this email. Mrs. Peck will contact chaperones and thanks to Christy Janson, Susan Viloria, Tim and Lisa Ahlgren, and Lori Cabean who have volunteered already!
A personal request
It has always been a great joy of mine to take pictures with the students at concerts during the year. For this year, I would love to get some pics with the students by our new decoupage sign in the band hallway after the concert.
I care greatly about our students. They are your children and my team. I will always care about them far more than they care about me and that’s the way it is supposed to be. Down the road I will be a distant memory, but for me they will always be a part of my life and I will truly miss every last student. As I get older, pics will all I have of them.
I know not everyone has the time and patience to wait around, but I am hoping you will indulge me with this personal favor, if not at the concert then perhaps before the end of the year.
These words seem so insufficient at times to convey my gratitude and appreciation for all of you. Nevertheless, thank you for sharing your children with me and for enriching my life. It is my hope that I have influenced them in some small way, and I assure you they have influenced me beyond measure. As parents, you are truly wonderful as well.
I am friends with several of you and your counsel and friendship has been immeasurable. I am always here for you and the students if ever need. Please know that as you move forward in this fantastic life journey.
This has been a great year with a little bit more to go. There are lots of plans for next year and I am excited to share more with you when the time is right.
Until I see you on Thursday, may you week be filled with happiness, joy, and accomplishment.
