Notes for all band members–
1. Students will be bringing home a bright orange form about Band Fees. We were able to get them from $20 down to $10 to make it easier for families who are having to clean up their homes. There is also a place on the form for 7th/8th graders to order their uniforms and for those students who are renting an instrument from the school to pay for that. Just check off the boxes that apply to you and total it up at the bottom.
2. Students need to turn in their Travel & Medical Form and their Handbook Agreement form. If these were lost during our time off, there are more copies available in the band hall.
Our minor setback is the whole “we don’t have instruments” thing. As you know, we were supposed to have our Horn Drives back in August for you to come visit the music stores here at Null and set up your rent-to-own. Then there was Harvey.
We have rescheduled our Horn Drives for October 4 and 5 from 5:30-7 PM at the NMS Cafeteria. If we want these kids to be ready for their first concert in December, it is HIGHLY important for all 6th graders to show up if they did not do so in the spring.
7th and 8th grade–
We are now playing our instruments! Students should have them every day. They need to make sure they have all necessary maintenance supplies, as they will be tested soon for them.
