2. The 7th/8th grade band will be marching in the Old Settlers' Day Parade on Saturday, September 24th at 9am. We have already begun practicing for this event. Students need to have tennis shoes and a bottle of water for class everyday.
3. Students will have a playing test over "Victory March" this Wednesday, September 14th. This must be played from memory! Students who do not pass this test will have until Monday, September 19th to make it up for partial credit.
4. Eligibility begins this week. The Middle School office will begin running weekly reports to identify ineligible students (students that are failing one or more classes). Please help encourage your student to turn in all of his/her work. You can check your student's grades on Information Now via the school website. Contact the Middle School office for more information about this.
5. Students that are ineligible and/or do not pass the "Victory March" playing test will not be permitted to march in the parade. Students that are not permitted to march due to grades and/or the playing test, will need to complete an alternative assignment to earn credit for the missed performance.
6. Uniform for the parade will be MS Band tshirt (tucked in), blue jeans (no holes), and tennis shoes. If students ordered a MS Band tshirt, $15, payable to P-T Bands, will be due on Wednesday, September 14th.
7. This Tuesday, September 13th will be the kick-off of our annual Cherrydale Fundraiser. Please remember that the band receives no funds from the school, and we need as many people to participate as possible. The money raised will go toward contest fees, new music, and new instruments.
