Good afternoon!

     As you all know, Palm Beach County Schools have been closed through the end of Spring Break.  This past week I instructed all students to sign up for “Google Classroom” and to take their instruments home in the event of a prolonged stay at home and should we need to begin online learning. There are many assignments that can be completed using Google Classroom. The first priority would be for me to upload possible music to practice for upcoming concerts that will hopefully happen once this crisis passes.  In addition, should this continue after spring break, we can upload assignments and etudes for classes as well.  

     If any of you need to pick up their instrument, you can contact me via Google Classroom and my Email. But… you should have already done this.

     Please don't worry about Grades as of this moment. I have a lot to update and I will make every effort to get it done before grades become official.  

    Although many of our Band Department activities have been cancelled; State Solo & Ensemble, SFWGA Competitions and Championships, All-County Orchestra, we have much to look forward to. Some of those things are… End of Year Concert (Band, Jazz Band, Orchestra, Guard), rebuilding the FHHS Falcon Band Drumline, Band Banquet, Graduation, Band Luau and more.

     This Corona Virus is a situation we have never faced before.  So, it is important to plan for an extended absence, but also to continue to work on things that would be beneficial whenever things get back to normal.  Please stay tuned to the news for all the information coming out and stay safe and stay healthy.
