Dear Parents,

We had a great weekend, thanks to everyone who helped our students succeed. We are the smallest band in our division and yet we came in 2nd place! This week will be equally as busy and important that we are at our best. This is the last week of regular season and we hope to continue with a strong placement in post season! Our annual Butterbraid Fundraiser has begun, each student is asked to sell 7 braids at $12.50 a piece. Please ask your child for the order form and help us make our goal.

Curriculum for the week:
MPH this week will focus on music from Part IV, if your child has received less than a 12/16 in Powerschool please help get them into a regular practice schedule. Students will be asked to come in Monday and Thursday for MPH.  We will have extra music rehearsals this week as listed below for entire sections of the band. Please let me know if you have any questions.
