Tuesday, Jan 31- pep-band b-ball game.  Report time of 6:00PM.


Monday, Feb. 6- pancake dinner/concert!

6:00PM- everyone eats pancakes in the cafeteria as the two SM North jazz bands play.  Although students/families are not required to eat the pancakes dinner, we would really appreciate everyone eating as a group!  Dinner is $7.00 for all-you-can-eat, and Chris Cakes is our caterer.  In addition to pancakes, they’re also including sausage and orange juice.  We’re planning on at least 250 people eating with us.  In addition to a great meal, it’s lots of fun!

6:45PM- everyone transfers to the auditorium for the formal portion of the concert.  The order of performance is: 6th grade honor band, freshman band, concert band, symphonic band.  Each group will perform two tunes, and the concert should wrap up around 7:45 or so.

To clarify, this is a graded/required performance for ALL SM North band students.  All students need to stay for the entire event.


Tuesday, Feb. 7- pep-band b-ball game.  Report time of 6:00PM.  There is also a booster meeting this same evening, which is 5:45-6:45PM in the choir room.


ALL band students, if you haven’t dropped by to pick up a pair of aviator sunglasses, please do so after school any day you wish.  ALL band students receive a free pair of sunglasses, regardless of whether you traveled to Florida!



Listed below are the 2023 Summer Band camp dates.  Students and parents, PLEASE do your best to make travel/vacation plans around theses dates, especially if you’re planning to be in varsity band.  As a parent of 3 children who all participated in varsity band here at North, I know this can be difficult…but so many varsity students are planning on a 100% participation rate, as we learn a significant portion of the competitive marching band show during this camp.    It’s the same basic schedule as last year, except a few days later on the calendar, as the school year is starting a few days later relative to this year.  Having said all that, please let me know if there’s going to be a scheduling issue.
