From The Director 3-5-2023

Good evening!

Congratulations to the Winter Guard who placed 3rd out of 7 in their upper level AAA class! Great job ladies! Your hard work is really paying off!

Thank you to Ashley for bringing in snacks. We are still in need of more for rehearsals/etc though!

Thank you to Lauren, Diane, and Julie N for Chaperoning Pre-CPA. While the students didn't get Ones, they performed very well and we know what we need to do to improve before CPA next week.

Thank you also who have volunteered for upcoming events!

For CPA on March 14th, we don't have to leave the school until 10:30, so chaperones, please be in the band room by 10:15. We will still be returning by 6PM. There is a large break for the judges prior to our performance so we won't be able to watch anyone else perform prior to ours. That is why we are leaving later than originally planned.

All information below this is repeated from the last email, so IF you have been reading them, you don't need to read it again.


Our next parents meeting is Monday the 13th at 6:30, immediately following our rehearsal. In fact, to kick off the rehearsal, we are going to perform for you all 1 more time and show you exactly what they will be doing the following day (so rehearsal will technically be going until about 6:45 instead of 6:30 that day).

Anyone who is interested is running for a Band Boosters board position for next year needs to be nominated at the meeting on the 13th, at which point we will vote for those members, and their first responsibility will be at the following meeting the first Monday of April. I hope you are all considering helping out your child in this way. Responsibilities of the board members are in the attachment
