IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS SELECTED FOR 6TH GRADE PERCUSSION
If your student was selected for 6th grade percussion they should have brought a letter home to you at the end of the school year. These student will need to rent/purchase a bell kit and snare drum (Beginning Percussion Kit) from one of the local music stores or from a student who has owned them in the past. You will also need to purchase a Percussion Book 1 from the Tradition of Excellence series.
Letters were mailed out today that explain how summer lessons will work this year. It also includes VERY important dates for the high school students. I have attached the letter to this post.

Congratulations to the Junior High and High School bands on a tremendous concert last Thursday. The elementary will have their concert on December 13, and they will perform at 2:30pm and 7:00pm.
As we approach the end of the semester students need to make sure that they are taking their things home with them. Anything left in the classroom, other than materials required for class, will be taken to the lost and found. The room will be getting a new look over the break.
A copy of the State Band itinerary can be found below!

Instrumental music lessons will begin the week of June 6 2016 and will conclude on Friday July 22, 2016.
I apologize for the short notice. There were some difficulties and delays in arranging host locations.
Lessons will be held at Grace United Methodist Church in Boelus on Mondays, Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Dannebrog on Wednesdays, and at the New Hope Christian School in Cairo on Fridays. Lessons for high school students will be held in the afternoon on each of the three days at the high school.
These are group lessons and will focus on proper skill development at each grade level. The schedule for these lessons will be the same for each day. That schedule is:
5th grade from 9:00am to 9:35am
6th grade from 10:00am to 10:35am
Junior High from 11:00am to 11:35am
High School from 1:00pm to 1:45pm
The 25 minute period between group lessons can be used for individual lessons on a first come first serve basis. Individual lessons can be scheduled in the afternoon if needed, but will be hosted at the high school.
