Director’s Notes

Hello Band Families! 

Congratulations to Symphonic Winds on excellent performances last week at Springman and Attea! We got a lot of middle school students excited about being part of our band family!

The Holiday Bazaar Fundraiser is December 3rd! We will need small groups to sign up and volunteer throughout the day! Look for the sign-up sheet that will be posted this week! If you are looking for a group to perform with or want to brainstorm song ideas, please come see me!

Show shirts have arrived! Once they are organized, a post will go up on google classroom letting you know they are ready for pickup!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
