Band Bulletin #38: 5/31-6/6

The year has come to an end, and though things ended in a non-traditional manner, we are still so VERY PROUD of everything our students have accomplished this year. We will be finalizing grades Monday and Tuesday to reflect missing/late work that was turned in Friday and over the weekend. Please be sure to check Progress Book one last time on Tuesday for accuracy. Final grades will be submitted Wednesday morning. THANK YOU to students and parents for their patience and perseverance during this time of offsite learning.

CONGRATULATIONS to the Class of 2020! You are leaving a great legacy in the Band Program and we know you all will accomplish great things! THANK YOU to all our Senior parents as well for everything you have done to support these fine students’ participation and growth in the Band Program!

SUMMER DIGITAL MAILING

Our traditional Summer Mailing went out digitally this year. The mailing contains info about Band Camp, Medical Forms, and Band Booster information. Medical Forms are not due until Uniform Fitting Nights the first week of Band Camp. However, our Band Boosters are needing help immediately with Athletic Programs. If you are interested and able to help, please contact Melissa Burdick.

The mailing was posted on students’ Google Classroom and also sent out to parents via Remind and email. The Summer Digital Mailing can also be viewed HERE. ONLY STUDENTS need to confirm receipt of the Summer Digital Mailing through the confirmation form on Classroom. Parents do not need to send confirmation emails. Parents just need to ask their student to make sure they have confirmed receipt of the Summer Digital Mailing on Classroom. Please also make sure students have completed the STUDENT INFO FORM on Classroom and paid the BAND BOOSTER FEE.
