Woodwind Day

Monday, 3 October 2016

We are off to a great start with the Martin area band ensembles!  The Grade 6 band had their first rehearsal on Sept. 26 - it’s wonderful to hear the beginning sounds of a group of young musicians! 
Some things for the month of October:
INSTRUMENT LOAN FORMS:  Please return if you are using a school instrument
ONLINE PAYMENT:  Families should soon see a request for online payment for instruments ($120, if you’re using the school’s), and transportation fee ($50, with the exception of McLurg Grade 6 students)
OCTOBER 19 – Woodwind Day at the U of R – all Grade 7/8 woodwind players are invited to the University for the morning – more details/bus times to follow
GRADE 6 BAND T-SHIRTS – All new band students will be sized for their band uniform t-shirts during full band on October 12.  A note will be sent home with all students with cost, etc. 
MARK YOUR CALENDAR – Our winter concert this year is on December 6, 7:00pm at Martin.  This concert will feature all of our elementary groups as well as high school.  See you there!
