CALENDAR

Concert attendance and participation is mandatory. All concerts, festivals, and other performances are required, unless otherwise noted. These performances are equivalent to major tests in band. Below is a tentative calendar of all known events for the school year. Any changes to the schedule will always be announced in class, emailed to the parent(s) (if email is provided), and published on the website. For upcoming trips, I will send home a permission slip in advance. It is the responsibility of both the student and parents not to schedule other events that conflict with band performances. Any conflict or absence from a performance requires an email or written note from a parent explaining the situation to Ms. Sugano at least one week before the event, but preferably as soon as the conflict is known. A make-up assignment will be given to those students that will miss a required concert but contacted me before the event. A makeup assignment will NOT be given to students who do not notify me in advance. NO EXCEPTIONS! Band is a team effort and the team suffers without every member covering their part.
