HELLO AND WELCOME BACK!!!!
We anticipate another busy and outstanding year ahead of us! We are already entering contests, scheduling concerts, picking out music and a number of other AWESOME things for everyone to do. Hopefully, everyone already has their schedule and you are in the correct band class. Please don't worry if not!! Let one of us know and we will work it out with the front office.
Please take a moment to make sure you are in contact with us through our FACEBOOK Group (McMath Tiger Bands) and take a moment to register with REMIND 101.
The first week will be a lot of tending to the business of band, i.e. lockers, instruments, music, supplies, calendar, etc......
Honors Band, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band--please bring everything necessary to play on the first day of school.
Beginner Band--RELAX and take a BREATH!! The first few weeks will go by very slowly. I DON'T WANT ANYONE PLAYING THEIR INSTRUMENT UNTIL WE ARE READY FOR YOU TO DO SO!!! We have a proven method that prepares each student and it is a step by step process. If you already have your instrument, please bring it to the band hall. We will assign you a band locker and lock and you can store your gear here.
Our first few days will consist of going over procedures(refresher course for most of your), assigning lockers, passing out school owned instruments and begin getting our chops back in shape. We will also be passing out hard copies of several things to be reviewed and signed/returned.
PARENTS--We will go over everything in person at our band parent meeting on 8/22/18, so be looking for the handouts. We ALWAYS post all handouts and reminders on the band web site, the band Facebook page, and we send emails as well. PLEASE MAKE YOUR YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IS UPDATED IN YOUR HOME ACCESS CENTER (HAC) SO WE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH YOU!!! This year, we will are making an effort to utilize Remind 101 and Google Classroom, so please keep an eye out on more information regarding that.
Please feel free to contact us for anything you need and let's get it started--2018-2019 is going to be AWESOME!!!! #bandlife
