November Band Notes 2012

* Are you a band student who attends regularly, comes prepared, stays focused, practices regularly, and plays well? If so, thank you for your leadership! If not, what can you do to improve your contribution to our team?

* Please join us for our Winter Band Concert on Tues. Dec. 4th. All band students are expected to perform. Your uniform t-shirt will arrive before the concert. (Have you paid for it yet?!) You will also need black pants, black socks and black shoes.

* Thanks to everyone for their support of our Lamontagne fundraiser. Chocolate sales begin in January--another great way to pay off your JAM fees ($20) and save for our year-end events.

* We are very excited to be offering Gr. 7/8 jazz band again this year. We hope to have them ready to perform at our Winter Concert. Stay tuned!

* On Mon. Nov. 26th (day 1) all band students will be bussed to Johnson for an RSO Concert at 9:30am. Students will return to their schools at recess. No instruments today!

* Report cards are coming soon! Please look for your child's band mark and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns about your child's progress please contact your child's band director.

* Our next JAM meeting is Tues. Nov. 13th at 7:30pm at Johnson. Please join us!

* Band Parents: Are you getting our emails? If not, please email Ms. Smith ( to get on our list or update your email address.
