Parents:  Please allow plenty of time to park and to walk into the building. Traffic in the parking lot and even foot traffic inside of the building will be more than you might expect. Please check the map below. The Cafeteria and Auditorium are color coded for your convenience. Please notice the area in front of the cafeteria is the "meet up" area for you and your student. Do not try to meet your child in front of the auditorium. This is the most congested area that you will experience during the evening. We are asking that all parents stay in that area by the cafeteria to meet up with your child. The hallway is going to be extremely crowded down by the home room (room 33)

****The first concert will be Monday, November 12 at Normal Community High School (auditorium). We are asking that the band be in the home room  at 5:05.  We will warm up and then move into the auditorium to listen to the 5th graders play at 5:30. Our performance will then begin at 5:50. The concert is held in conjunction with the Unit 5 Music Parents’ Spaghetti Supper. Please consider supporting this event. Our suggestion is to eat after our performance.  

****The students should wear nice, dress up clothes that evening. We are asking that there be no blue jeans, t-shirts, shorts, leggings (or any kind of "eggings") or tennis shoes. If your child decides to wear a skirt or dress, it must be past their knees AFTER they sit down without stretching it. The stage at the high school is about four feet above the first few rows of seats. Hopefully that will guide you in the direction of nice pants instead of the skirt or dress.

Calendar of Events- See Calendar link in left side bar for this year's performance dates!

Music and instruments should be going home EVERY Friday (or the last day of any given week). The students will always have something that they can be working on. Students who leave their Instruments at school over the weekend are subject to consequences.
      One of the standards that we score is "quality of rehearsal participation". Not taking your instrument home or forgetting to bring it back to school will hurt the "quality" of your participation.                


PRACTICE SCHEDULE:

All students should be bringing their instruments home the last day of the week. If a student is in choir, it is expected that the instrument goes home
Thursday after school. One of the standards that we score is "quality of rehearsal participation". Not taking your instrument home or forgetting to bring it back to school will hurt the "quality" of your participation.
