There is a bit of confusion about beginning band scheduling for tomorrow, February 1st. I listed it as a scheduled day on the “schedules page,” but in an earlier post I said it would be cancelled due to Night of the Notables. Therefore, I have decided to make it optional. I will teach any students who decide to stay, but I will not take official roll. There will NOT be any phone calls home for children who are absent.
It has been said that “February is the new May,” because of the district and school performances this month. The 4th graders will be presenting a Drumming Extravaganza on February 13th at 4:30 and the citywide honor choir is February 15th. Band is cancelled for both of those days. Because of all of these cancellations, I have decided to add some optional Friday morning practices on the 9th, 16th and 23rd of February. These run from 7:45-8:30 in the auditorium. Hopefully, your student can take advantage of one or more of these sessions to keep them playing during this busy time.
