6/4/18 All Bands Knight Band Notes
It has been a GREAT year Knights! You lived up to all expectations and continued the “Tradition of Excellence!” Thank You!! We are looking forward to see what 2018-2019 brings!
Farewell 8th Graders! Thank you for all you have done this year! Have a great journey into the next chapter as you “Soar with the Hawks!” We’ll be watching! 🙂
Instrument Turn In
No instruments this week! All school-owned instruments should have been turned in last Friday. If you still have one, please bring it on Monday!
Soon to be 7th & 8th Grade students will receive their band placements this week. There has been some confusion about auditions. If a student signed up for band as 1st or 2nd on their choice sheet, they will be placed in one of the three concert bands. The auditions were not whether they would ‘make band’ but just which of the three band classes they would be placed in. All placements are final.
If your 6th or 7th grade band student plays a school-owned instrument and wants to continue renting their instrument over the summer the rental fee is $20. We will issue out instruments after the inventory has been inspected. You can pay cash, check (made out to KLMS Band), or online (https://pflugervilleisd.revtrak.net/middle-schools-/Kelly-Lane-MS/KLMS-Band-Fees/klms-instrument-usage/#/list)
Some Private Lesson Teachers will be teaching over the summer. Contact your child’s private lesson teacher for details. If your child did not take lessons this year, but you would like to get them started, please contact a band director! 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be a short summer band session the week before school starts (August 6-August 9, 6-7:30pm).
