January 15 Updates

6th Grade

Our very first 6th grade band concert is in 8 days! It is next Tuesday, January 23 at 7:00pm. Students should arrive between 6:30 and 6:40, and parents will want to get a seat in the auditorium so you don't miss any of it! Boys should wear all black dress shoes, long black socks, black dress pants, and long-sleeve white dress shirt. Girls should wear the same, but all black (including the tops).

6th grade passoffs are beginning this week as well. We went over the assignments and Charms in class on Thursday and Friday of last week and sent home information on both passoffs and Charms. Please ask your student about this if they haven't brought it home to you yet.


7th & 8th Grade

Our next concerts for 7th and 8th grade (as well as LGPE) are in March. Please check the calendar for the exact dates and times. The concert uniform will be strictly enforced at the Pre-LGPE concert to prepare us for the adjudicated setting later in the month. Boys will be provided bowties and vests for these concerts as well. 

Passoffs are continuing for our 7th and 8th grade students. Every 7th and 8th grader in band should have completed the Fundamentals Passoffs from the Fall semester. If you haven't, you can still turn them in at any point for full credit. We just want you to do them! Our next passoffs will be excerpts from the LGPE music itself. 


8th Grade Disney Trip

The third payment for the Disney trip is $100, due on or before Wednesday, January 24. Our first two payments totaled $325. If you still need to catch up with those payments, please do so as soon as possible. If you have any questions about payments or the trip itself, please email Mr. Lowery.
