2. A handful of students have not yet passed the Victory March playing test. Tomorrow (Monday) will be their last opportunity to play it for Mrs. Cartmell or myself. If a student does not pass the playing test, he/she will not be permitted to march in the Old Settlers' Day Parade, and he/she will be required to do an alternative assignment to make up for the missed performance grade.
3. Old Settlers' Day is this coming Saturday, September 24th. The parade will begin at 9:00am. Students need to be at the MS band room by 8:15am to warm up and go to staging.
4. Uniform for the parade will be MS band t-shirt (tucked in), blue jeans (no holes), and tennis shoes.
5. Once the MS band has made it through the parade, we will walk back to the MS band room to put things away. At this time, students will be dismissed.
6. Again, eligibility has begun. Please help your student to remember to turn in his/her work in all of his/her classes. You can keep an eye on your student's grades through Information Now.
7. Many students have failed to turn in their first two practice reports. Practice Reports make up a large percentage of their grade in band. All students should be practicing AT LEAST 15-20 minutes/day.
