Couple of things that you need to know this week
1 - You should start practicing. Work on your scales. Work on your band music. Work your region music
2 - Friday night, there is a meet the teacher from 6 - 7 at McDonald. Feel free to come by and see the band hall (it's the same as last year) and find where you new band locker is at.
3 - You will NOT need your horns the first day of school, we will start playing on the second day of school.
