Donations

In the wake of the devastation caused to our district by Hurricane Harvey, we are accepting donations to help our students. We have had a lot of people ask, so if any of you would like to pass this info along, please do!

**************

We are still in the process of assessing our needs. Here is what I can tell you RIGHT NOW that we need.

We need LOTS of these (like…200+):

1″ black binders.

3-ring pencil pouches

Highlighters

Packs of dividers

***We will always accept used instruments. Greatest needs will be flute, Bb clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, and trombone. If it needs repairing, it’s fine! We’ll take care of it.

I will continue to add more as we know more. We will also probably have a PayPal donation option on our website.

Flooded Instruments

VERY IMPORTANT–

Students:

If your instrument got wet in the flood, you need to get it out of the case and let it air dry. DO NOT PLAY THE INSTRUMENT AT ALL, as the water is contaminated and you risk getting sick.

When we get back to school, whenever that is, we will look at what we need to do to make sure your instrument is sanitized. You will probably need a new case. The good news is–if you are renting your instrument from the music store they will take care of replacing whatever needs replacing, as will the school if you have a school-owned instrument.

You are NOT in trouble if your instrument was flooded. It’s not your fault. Tell us so we can help you!

We have been told that the band hall did not flood, so we can at least be thankful for that.

Finally, if your family needs help cleaning your homes at this time, let us know!

NEW 6th GRADERS–HORN DRIVE NIGHTS

 

WHAT’s a HORN DRIVE??

When you come into band for the first time, there is a LOT of stuff that you’ll need.

                                                              …UNFORTUNATELY, most of this stuff has to be bought a music store, and none of them are in the neighborhood.

We are here to help–we will bring the music stores to you!

We will have three local music stores: Swicegood Music, H&H Music, and Music & Arts

at the NULL MIDDLE SCHOOL BAND HALL

on Monday, August 28 from 5-8 PM.

 

It will not take the whole 3 hours; you can anywhere within that time frame.

You will be able to place your order right then and there and they will deliver everything to you at school.  Students must be accompanied by a parent.

 

NOTE: Financial difficulty is no excuse to quit band.  We want all students who want to become musicians to have a chance.  If you are having trouble getting what you need, please talk to a band director in private.  Your personal information will be confidential.  We do ask that you visit the music stores first.
