Dear Parents and Students,
I hope that you are having a WONDERFUL summer! I have been living at Hawaiian Falls as often as possible. I am actually a little bit tan, too! :-)
Well, it is August 1st and it is time to start thinking about band class! Sometime today (hopefully) you should be getting a letter from me. If you just can't wait, you can get it in the "Handouts & Files" area of Charms, or here is a link to it:
8th Grade Summer Letter
Parents, there is a letter in there for you also.
Couple of things that you need to do:
#1 - If you are going to come to the picnic, please go to Charms and RSVP (tell me you are coming) so I can have enough food for everybody.
#2 - Start working on your All-City music that is in the letter!!
Now, if you haven't got you letter yet, you can download it from either the "Handouts & Files" area. They are in a folder called "City / Region Music". You should only see the music for your instrument. If you are a Double Reed (Oboe,Bassoon) or Saxophone (Alto, Tenor, Bari) you will have to pick the appropriate one. Baritone players, your instrument is listed under "Euphonium" Be sure to get that one, not the one that says Baritone TC.
Scale sheets look different, but they are the same notes and rhythms. Then, Selection 1 and Selection 2. Start working on small parts of it.
You can also go to the band website and download them there. However, they are password protected. So, if you do it that way, the password is "practice" :-)
I hope you are ready for a GREAT year! I am so excited and can't wait to see you all on August 23rd for some hot dogs!!!!
If you have ANY questions, please feel free to e-mail or call!
