Band Announcements for the Week Ending on December 15th
Greetings band families!  
1. Practice record 2.9 is due this Friday.  It is the last practice record of the semester.  The next required practice record will start on Friday, January 12th and will be due on Friday January 19th.  

2.  Playing Test for a grade boost.  Students whose grades have fallen behind due to not turning in practice records will have a chance to make up some of their grade with a playing test in class next week.  2nd and 3rd period band students will be tested on number 102 in the red book, 4th period will be tested on number 96, and 5th period will be tested on 84.  

3.  Group year book pictures will be taken on Tuesday, December 19th.  Students should wear their concert uniform (Broncho Music Polo and tan khaki on the bottom).  If they do not have a Broncho polo shirt, they can wear a plain red polo.  

4.  ISSMA Ensembles have been rehearsing this week.  Those who are performing at the ISSMA contest at Harrison in February should master their parts over the holiday break.  

5.  It is always hard to lose students at the end of the semester from band class.  However, if your child will not be continuing in band second semester, you will need to inform me first.  Then contact the guidance office to request a schedule change.  Students who have signed up to perform in solo and ensemble contest have made the commitment to continue through the year since the contest is in the second semester.  I hope that all students are able to continue learning their instrument.  We have so much to learn!! 
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
