Friday, September 2nd- Away football game.  As stated on the summer/fall calendar, this is optional for all JV and varsity band students.  Please sign up by band room office, in case you haven’t already.  Report no later than 5:45PM to the North band room, IN YOUR SHOW SHIRT.  We depart at 6:00PM for SM South, and should be back to North around 10:00PM, depending on how long the game lasts.  PARENTS and STUDENTS: Unless there are unique circumstances that arise, all band students must travel back to North on the bus if they go with the band…it’s the only way everyone is safe and accounted for!

Parents: Listed below are the band booster meeting dates for the 2016-17 school year.  Although optional, all parents are encouraged to attend.  This is a great way to get additional information and get plugged into the program.  We have a wonderful group of parents that not only help our band kids, they have a great time doing it!  Please consider attending the meeting so you feel “in the know”!

All meetings are from 5:45-6:45PM in the North band room.  Meetings never run longer than one hour, so you have the rest of your evening open.

Tuesday, Sept. 6th

We will probably have a meeting in April and May.

STUDENTS: Any students interested in auditioning for the John Phillips Sousa Honor Band should read the flyer by the band room office, or visiting [email protected]  Auditions are in October.  

STUDENTS: If you received zero points for not completing the Charms assignment, please login to Charms, using the school code of “smnbands”, then using your SMSD ID for the password, and editing the “update info” icon.  Be advised, Charms does not contact me when someone does this, so please email me that you’ve completed the assignment so I can give you partial credit for this assignment that was due last week.

Finally, next week is a “regular” week in band with the normal early rehearsals, except we do not have anything planned for Monday since it’s Labor day.  I hope everyone enjoys the longer weekend!
