We are in need of some volunteers for next week’s Pancake dinner/concert (see below). It’s a fun evening, but we’re needing a few more helping hands. Please sign up using this link, thanks in advance: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C084EA4A92DA5FEC52-47072203-pancake#/
A special shout out to the following students who made the KMEA all-state band! We’ve never had this many kids make it…way to go! Also, a special congrats to Anahi Silva, as she is the 1at 4 year all-state band student in the history of SM North! They will rehearse/perform at the state convention in Wichita, Feb. 22nd-24th.
Anahi Silva- 2nd chair flute
Christian Adams- 11th chair trumpet
Eva Taylor- 6th chair trombone
Henry Duff- percussion/mallets
Gregor White- 1st alternate tenor sax
Feb. 2nd (this Friday)- pep-band basketball game. Report time of 6:15PM in the band room. This is the Hall of Fame night, so it’s a bigger deal to have everyone at this game. Please email me if you have a scheduling conflict.
Monday, Feb. 5th– band booster meeting at 5:45PM in the band room. Everyone is invited to attend, and we always keep the meetings to under an hour.
Tuesday, Feb. 6th Pancake Dinner/Concert itinerary:
5:45PM- everyone meet in the cafeteria to start eating pancakes. The cost is $8 a person. I know it’s a little more than in the past, but all of our costs have gone up. Although it’s optional to eat, PLEASE make plans to eat with us…it’s a really fun night to share dinner together!
6:00- both jazz bands will play in the cafeteria as everyone is eating
6:45ish- everyone walks over to the auditorium for the concert. All bands will play two songs, in the following order: 6th grade honor band, freshman band, concert band, symphonic band. The concert will conclude around 7:30PM. Students, this is a graded event.
Students, concert attire is business/Sunday best. Slacks, button down shirt or sweater, dress, etc. No specific color coordination.
Feb. 9th– pep-band basketball game. Report time of 6:00PM. We’re starting a little earlier because it’s band feeder night. This is an “all hands-on deck” game since we’ve invited all 6th-8th graders. Please email me if you have a scheduling conflict.
That’s it for now. Let’s hope the snow days are over!
