I hope this finds you all doing well. Thank you band students for a great week last week and thank you so much to all of the new parents that I met at the Band Parents meeting on Wednesday night! It was great to see so many new faces! :) Here is what we are looking at this week.
1.) Start-Up Forms
The fall start-up forms are now very late. Please return your Student/Parents info sheets, uniform rental/cheques, and the cover page from the envelope ASAP.
Congratulations to the BAND 10 class who has returned ALL of their forms! Pizza lunch coming soon!
2.) Band Classes This Week
Practice Cards for week 1 can now be submitted (Grade 9s and 10s). Week 2 this week!
Monday - Pro–D Day, No classes
Tuesday – Band 9
Wednesday – Band 10, Band 11/12
Thursday – Band 9
Friday – Band 10, Band 11/12 (Shortened classes due to Welcome Back BBQ)
3.) Performing Band Rehearsals
All outside the timetable rehearsals will be running this week. Please check the orange schedule that was sent home to see when those rehearsals take place. Please note, for returning students, that some of the rehearsal times have changed.
4.) Uniform Sizings
The Spectrum Band Parents Association will be running two uniform sizing sessions this week. We ask that all families choose one of the following sessions to attend a fitting. If you have not submitted your cheques for uniform rental please bring them to the uniform sizing. It is very important that we get every student out THIS WEEK as our timelines for sizing, hemming, sewing and altering are very short. Thanks!
Monday, 17 September 6-8pm in the Band Room
Wedneday, 19 September 6-8pm in the Band Room
5.) The Great Apple Pie Event / Thrifty's Smile Cards
Keep selling those apple pies! :) Order forms are due this Friday (September 21st) by 3:00pm in the band room. Sorry no late orders can be accepted. Students can now sign themselves and their parents up for the "big day" (Apple Pie Making Day on Saturday, September 29; 9am – 5pm in the school's cafeteria) in the band room. Please remember to make arrangements to pick up and deliver your pies on September 29th. There is no storage available at the school.
Thrifty Foods Smile cards will be distributed at the uniform sizings this week… they are a great way to support the band program! Click HERE for more information.
