Knight Band Notes- Beginner Band 9/17/18
Greetings Knight Band Students and Parents!
The fun “Parent Teach” assignment begins this weekend! Students have until next Friday (9/21) to complete the assignment. They simply have to teach you what they’ve learned so far! 🙂 Handout Here: Parent Teach.How to 2017
*Special note for Tubas, Euphoniums, and French Horns: The “home” instruments are still in the shop getting cleaned and repaired. We will send a special email home to those parents when the instruments are ready for pick up. In the meantime, students can practice their buzzing on the mouthpiece, etc. (watch the ‘practice session’ videos!).
We will be distributing T-Shirts in class this week. This will be their uniform for the upcoming Band Pictures as well as the uniform for the Winter Concert in December. (If you have not already done so)…Be sure to pay for the “Band Bundle!” This is the ”Bander” and the 2018-2019 Uniform T-Shirt ($16). You can send checks (payable to KLMS Band) or cash or use the link below to pay online. (Be sure to put cash or checks in an envelope labeled “Band Bundle” with student name).
We need some volunteers for the next football game concession stand! Parents that helped out last week THANK YOU!! YOU ROCK!
Please click on one of the links to sign up. We only had TWO people for the 2nd shift last week! All of the proceeds come directly back to the Knight Band Program! Thank you in advance!! 🙂
