Hello most wonderful band parents,
I just wanted to keep you posted on all things band-related.
BAND ACADEMIC PLANS:
- This week: Please refer to your band student’s practice log for this week’s homework. If they feel they have completed that homework, please instruct them to continue in their method book and to try different practice methods as outlined in this month’s practice record. For their log, students are responsible for writing down what they are practicing.
- Stay-home two-week absence: Attached to this email and on the school website, you will find a Concert Project for all band students to complete, a B-A-N-D-O (Bingo for Band) game and their April Practice Record that they will need to complete. Both of these assignments can be used as time on their practice record, which will still continue.
If your band student still has their instrument and/or music at school, your band student can pick them up anytime from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
It is very unfortunate that the Brandon Jazz trip has been cancelled. We are in touch with all of our service providers and will let you know as soon as possible about refunds.
GRADE 6 TRIP:
Unfortunately, the Grade 6 trip falls before we are returning on April 13th. As of right now, that date is cancelled, but we are looking at alternative dates.
GRADE 7 TRIP and GRADE 8 MOOSE JAW TRIP:
As of right now, we will plan to proceed as per usual after our return to school. If it turns out the trips are cancelled, we will be in touch with our service providers and will let you know about refunds as we get further information. The Moose Jaw trip payment is no longer due at the beginning of April. I will keep you posted when we return.
All orders for our fundraiser have been placed. The SMPA and I will be in touch with a possible alternate date from our providers.
Thank you for your support and patience,
Music Educator, Springfield Middle School
