5th Grade band members and Parents,
The first concert of the 5thgrade band will be held in the West Branch High School auditorium on Tuesday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. We will be joining the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade bands on their annual holiday concert.
To prepare for this concert, we will be holding our Before School Band Rehearsals. This is a great opportunity for the students of the three elementary schools to meet and perform together before our concert.
There are 3 mandatory rehearsals before the concert:
Friday, November 18th
Friday, December 2nd
Friday, December 9th
5th grade band students will be permitted to ride the early bus, which transports middle school and high school students, to the high school to be dropped off there at 7:25 a.m. If you plan to transport your student, please drop them off at 7:25 a.m. Look for the band room entrance sign on the door to the right of the main entrance of the high school.
We will practice in the high school band room from 7:30 until 8:30 a.m.
A snack will be provided after the rehearsal.
At the conclusion of our rehearsals Beloit students will walk with me across the parking lot to their elementary building while Knox and Damascus students will board a bus that will take them to their elementary school building.
Band students will need to bring their normal band materials (instrument, music, pencil). Please make sure to take your instruments home after school on the Thursday before each rehearsal.
Please fill out and sign the permission form sent home and return it to your student’s homeroom teacher by Friday, November 11th.
Please feel free to call me with any questions you might have. I look forward to seeing you at rehearsal!
