UPCOMING FOR 8TH GRADE STUDENTS!

Auditions and placement for High School Band

The students will be auditioning for their high school placement in band starting Monday, January 9th during school. Students should be practicing over the break so that they are ready to perform on video for the high school band directors. The videoing is to make sure we have the right student with the right audition. There had been some concern with audio only taping. Continue to encourage them to practice diligently for this audition.
