A letter from Mr. Harris:

HELLO TIGERS!!!

We are so excited to get this year started!! We are sooooooo excited to see you again, either in person or virtually, and continue to make music!!! WE ARE JUST EXCITED!!!

Our culture has been and will continue to be based on positive relationships with each other. The many things we have achieved and earned have all been a byproduct of the way we rehearse and treat each other. None of that will change. We will continue to show up, do our job, be kind to one another, teach, learn, make beautiful music and have fun doing it.

Another cornerstone of our program has been honesty. We tell you the truth and expect the same in return. As we prepare for the beginning of another year, many things are still not settled upon. Virtual Learning, F2F, Connected Learning, Synchronous/Asynchronous Learning, Canvas, Microsoft Teams, Calendar Dates….. the list goes on and on and is constantly changing. What I do know is that band will happen. Will it look differently for a while? Absolutely yes. I also know that our “Tech Goddess”, aka Mrs. Gaskill has been working night and day to make sure we (especially me) are all up to speed on the afore mentioned learning applications and we’re ready to go, no matter what environment we find ourselves.

Our collective safety is the most important point. Our rehearsal structure, instrument storage, band hall cleanliness will all be updated to coincide with safety regulations and will be spelled out in our band hall procedures. We will be rehearsing in various ways and places and learning in all of them. Our motto has always been to “Never Give Up” and I believe that that is important now more than ever. We will not only survive this pandemic, but we will THRIVE!! The Tiger Band Program has always been the front runner and trend setter. We will continue to do so.

Let’s Get Busy!!

Mr. Harris
