Hello! A couple reminders:
- Today, Monday, 11/16 – Pep Band Rehearsal for everyone – 3:12 – 4:33pm. If I had to guess, we’ll probably get out a little early!
- Tuesday, 11/17 – $12 for Pep Band Tshirts are due – We will be using the same shirts as last year, so returning members do not need to buy a new one unless they need a different size/new one. Checks can be made payable to Alton High School.
- Wednesday, 11/18 – ABOB Night at Chinese Buffet – Click Here for More Information
- Thursday, 11/19 – AHS Orchestra Concert – 7pm, AHS Auditorium. It’s a great opportunity for a Fine Arts Critique! Fine Arts Critique Rubric for All Bands
*Side note – we do have two extra tickets to see Wicked on Thursday, December 10 – we will sell them at first come, first serve. Tickets are still $55 – please let me know ASAP if you are interested!*
Looking to next week:
- Parent/Teacher Conferences – As in the past couple of years, I’ll be using Parent/Teacher conference time to have “mini lessons” with students – students and/or their parents can come in and play for the 10 minute conference slot to get help with concert music, have general questions answered, etc. It’s a GREAT opportunity for me to have some individual lesson time with students to see what help they need. No pressure, really low key – come in and play a bit if you want!
Band grades are in great shape, so we can also use this time to talk about any questions you may have – college, upgrading to a newer instrument, etc. Feel free to stop in with any questions! No need to schedule time – just stop in when you’re here.
- Ms. Davis will be splitting her time between the middle school and high school. She will be at the high school on Monday from 5-7pm, and the entire time (8am-1pm) on Tuesday.
- Monday, 11/16 – ABOB Meeting – 7pm, AHS Orchestra Room
