LONDON TRIP - FAMILIES OF CURRENT 9th and 10th Grade students!
We hope we have given you some time to think about your commitment to this trip for 23-24. We would like to get some early data before we look at firm commitment in the Fall. This is an anonymous survey - ONLY ADULTS SHOULD COMPLETE
Please take 2 minutes to complete this survey: https://forms.gle/4wDJTutwuDh3EbcP8
The following classes require your attendance during your exam time for graduation music rehearsal:
A2 (Symphonic Band Winds)
A3 (Wind Ensemble)
B1 (all winds)
GRADUATION INFORMATION - FRIDAY, MAY 27th
Who: All members of Wind Ensemble or Symphonic Band (basically all band students except color guard) who are not graduating are required to attend. Because of the limited percussion parts, we have asked 4 percussionists to play, so all percussionists will not have to attend.
When: Friday, May 27th at 5:30 pm. You need to be there by 4:30 and in the building by 4:45 pm. When the ceremony before us ends and clears the floor, we will meet on the floor of the arena. We will be taking a truck for percussion equipment and large instruments. Prepare for lots of traffic when arriving and departing.
Where: Von Braun Center Arena. You are responsible for getting there. Carpooling is encouraged. Parking will cost money.
What to wear: Business casual - no jeans, no tennis shoes, nice top - no midriff. If you choose to wear a skirt, please wear skirts that touch your knees when sitting. Please dress for the band being on stage of a formal graduation ceremony.
Other things: The VBC and their security run the logistics of the event. The easiest way to get in is to meet us outside behind the arena near the truck and bay doors (between the south hall underground parking garage and arena . If security tells you to go to the front, you may have to take your stuff through security, so be prepared for that.
The ceremony will be over by 7:30 pm at the latest (but may be sooner).
If you are using a school owned instrument this year, the rental is free but you must take your instrument to Southeastern to have it evaluated and returned to the playing condition you received it in. This cost is on each individual.
Please make sure all outstanding dues for 21-22 are paid. Contact Brenda Tapia if you have any questions at email@example.com
The first payment for band booster dues for NEXT YEAR are due by the last day of school. The first payment is $250 and is due to the band box or paid online through Charms. Band Booster dues are $750 for 22-23. There is a 5% discount if you pay the entire amount in your first payment ($712.50).
