KNIGHT BAND NOTES-SUMMER EDITION
Happy Short Summer!!! We are just checking to make sure you all are having as much fun as we are! 🙂 The band directors are currently staying cool in the hot weather, practicing, running, building and getting the band hall ready for you!!! Here are just a few important items to keep in mind as the school year approaches.
1. Summer Band Session
We will have a fun, action-packed week of ‘Summer Band’ before school starts.
Monday–Thursday, August 6-9, 6pm-7:30pm each day.
*Thursday we will take group pictures for the Pfestival of Bands program. Students should wear blue jeans and we will provide the new 2018-2019 Knight Band T-Shirt. (Students will pay for them when school starts, we just need to get them distributed quickly for the pictures).
*If you play a school owned instrument but don’t have it yet, please plan to arrive 30 minutes early.
2. HELP NEEDED!!!
Tuesday and Wednesday (8/7 & 8/8): During our evening rehearsal (6pm-7:30pm), we would like to assemble our band binders (“banders”) for this year. If you have time to spare, we would appreciate having some parent volunteers assist us with this task. The more volunteers, the faster the process (we might even get it done on Tuesday)! Thank you for your support!
Reply to this email if you are interested/available to help out!
3. FLIP FOLDERS and LYRES
*All 7th & 8th graders need to have a lyre and a flip folder for our outdoor performances (Pfestival of Bands, Pep Rallies, Football Games, Walk to School Day). You can purchase them in the band store (https://pflugervilleisd.revtrak.net/middle-schools-/Kelly-Lane-MS/KLMS-Band-Fees/flip-folders-lyres-pages/#/list) or just send cash/check (made payable to KLMS Band).
If you are unfamiliar with what a flip folder and a lyre is, click here: https://knightband.com/lyres-and-flip-folders/
*Exceptions: contra alto clarinet will only need a flip folder and percussionists (including oboes and bassoons) will not need a flip folder nor a lyre.
