DIRECTOR'S NOTES

5/26

-We are very excited for the upcoming marching band season that is right around the corner!

-Here is the reminder sheet for the June Rehearsals with dates/times/locations - June Rehearsal Reminder Sheet

-There is a parent meeting for all parents that are new to Band, this will be run by the Band Boosters, and an overview of the season will be explained from a parents' perspective.  

-All parents are encouraged to download the Equipment and Supplies list so they can shop during the summer so that their student has all of their required materials and items by the time Band Camp begins in August.  A copy of the list is here: Required Equipment List & Percussion Required Equipment

-During the June Rehearsals students should enter at "Door 15" which are the PAC Doors.  All parents that are entering the building to attend the Booster Meeting or purchase the Band T-Shirts or Band Polo Shirts, should also enter at "Door 15"

-Because of construction, any TROMBONE, BARITONE, TENOR SAXOPHONE, or TUBA players - should plan on entering at "Door 5" which is the door directly under the "NR" on the outside of the High School.  This door will take you directly to the Science Hub, where all Low Brass will be rehearsing in June.  Please see the diagram below:

-Students should check the "June Rehearsals Reminder Sheet" that was posted in Google Classroom for information about the upcoming June Rehearsals.

-Reminders for all parents - any notes about student absences should be written on a paper note, signed by a parent, and the student should hand it to Mr. Vitale in-person BEFORE the absence occurs.  

5/19

-Students should continue to use Google Classroom for announcements for the rest of the year.  I will officially "close down" the 2020-2021 Google Classroom for Band on May 29th - and all students should make sure that they have enrolled in the NEW Google Classroom for the upcoming Marching Band Season for 2021-2022.  All further announcements will be posted in the NEW Google Classroom page for the new Marching Band Season

-When the results of the Band Front, Percussion, and Leadership Lists have been decided - the results will be posted on the "Forms and PDF's Page" here on the Website - not the Google Classroom Page

-When the results of the Field Commander Auditions and Band Council Voting has been tallied - the results will be posted on the "Forms and PDF's Page" here on the Website - not the Google Classroom Page

-Any unclaimed awards by students who were absent or Full-Remote students will be thrown away if not claimed by the last day of school
