    SAN FRANCISCO TRIP APRIL 20-23 

    The bi-annual trip for WE and JE students is almost here! This year's trip to San Francisco should be a fantastic mix of music education, performance, and fun.

    Students will depart at 7:15am on Thursday April 20, and return late on Sunday April 23full itinerary and packing list

    At this point, all participating WE/JE students should be registered with Educational Travel Service (ETSI) at www.etsi.ws. The Band Boosters will be covering part of the cost for each student, but the remaining payments should be made directly to ETSI on their website. Be sure to indicate trip number 3H16.

     

    BAND BOOSTERS WANT YOU!

    The next band boosters meeting is Tuesday, April 18 at 6:30pm in the band room, and we would love to have YOUR support!

    The Grant Band Boosters are a friendly group of parents who meet monthly, along with Mr. McFadden, to support the band program. Meetings are the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30-7:30, most often in the band room. Your help improves the quality of the music experience for our sons and daughters at Grant. Please consider joining us on April 18 to see what it’s all about.

    We have some board positions open for next year, including President-Elect and membership in our Sweet Sound of Jazz Planning Team. As President-Elect, you would attend monthly meetings and prepare to assume the duties of booster president the following year. The Sweet Sound of Jazz Team will be a group of 5-8 parents who will work together to plan this event which typically takes place in February.

    If you are curious about these positions and would like more information, you can visit the grantband.org website and/or email marybethhernandez@comcast.net. Or just come to a meeting and introduce yourself.

    Please help us spread the word to families joining us next year! Pass this information along to any parents of eighth grade band students on their way to Grant.
