Hello Everyone,
This Friday our High School Symphonic and Concert bands will be traveling to Plainwell High School to perform at MSBOA District Band festival. The Symphonic band and 6 concert band students will be leaving before the end of the school day at 1:45. Concert Band students will be leaving from our High School at 5:15. The remainder of the information can be found on the attached “fact sheet.” I know our performance times are early, but it would be WONDERFUL to play for a supportive group of parents and family members.

If you plan on driving your student home from festival and/or you plan on allowing your student to ride home from festival with another family, please fill out the form at the bottom of the fact sheet and return it to school by next Wednesday.

If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail Ms Latham.

Just a few items to keep you up-to-date regarding upcoming band events.

Pep Band: Our High School band students are required to perform at two of the four upcoming pep bands. We have a great time cheering on our Girls and Boys varsity basketball teams as they compete. Students are asked to wear GL gear and meet in the band room at 4:30pm. We will perform for both games and pack up immediately following halftime of the boys game. Although we cannot say for certain what time each event will wrap up, please plan on picking up students after 9 pm.

Box Tope for Education!!

datePosted on 07:54, January 22nd, 2015 by The Webmaster

Hey band students and parents, just a reminder to please turn in your Box Tops for Education that you have been collecting. We have an entry deadline coming up on March 1 so we need them all turned in before then. Ms Cha has a bucket in her classroom for them and Ms Latham has “a faded pink box hidden somewhere in the band room” that she uses ;-) Also, some General Mills products have a special code on them for a chance to win 1 million Box Tops! The codes can be clipped and turned in with the regular Box Tops. Thank you everyone!
