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!

One Band, One Family! Mr. Brian Boron, Band Director,, 847-486-4437

Volunteers Needed 12/3 & 11/26

Holiday Bazaar volunteers are essential! There are slots for set-up help on Friday before the event and throughout the day on Saturday. Please sign up for a shift here. We need everyone’s help to make this event a success!

We also need a few parents to chaperone the Holiday Parade. Sign up here.

Wrapping Paper and Accessories Needed

We are accepting donations of wrapping paper, ribbons, bows and tape for our wrapping station at the Holiday Bazaar.  There is a box in the band room or you can drop it off at Laura Ashley’s house at 240 N Branch Rd, Glenview.
