  • EAST PETE PARADE - JOB WELL DONE!
    Attention Students: Congratulations on a job well done today by participating in the East Petersburg Community Day Parade. Your performance in the parade was very well received by all in attendance, and you did a fantastic job of dealing with the heat and humidity throughout the event. Being involved in our community is an important part of the band's mission, and your efforts today were noticed and appreciated by thousands along the mile long route. Keep up the great work!

  • STUDENT ATTENDANCE / CHECK-IN REMINDER
    Attention Students: a friendly reminder from Mr. Siegel that it is your responsibility to "check-in" prior to report time by using your student ID to scan into the attendance app on Mr. Siegel's teacher iPad. The iPad will be stationed on the computer desk in the front of the band room. Your ID from any previous school year will work. Students who do not have an ID yet because they are new to the district are exempt from this requirement until an ID is issued (should be here in shortly when pictures are delivered. Those exceptions will be logged in manually.)  Hint: take a picture of your student ID and have it on your phone - scanning the picture of the barcode on your student ID works!

    This procedure for attendance, which we have been using since the start of band camp, ensures that all band members are accounted for before our practice begins, that phone calls home to students who did not arrive to band can be made in a timely fashion (student safety measure), and that you cannot accidentally (or purposefully) check in other students who may or may not have arrived to rehearsal yet. 

    Students who do not "check-in" prior to report time will be marked late. Students who do not "check-in" at all on any given day will be marked as unexcused absent. Since late arrivals and unexcused absences are followed with consequences as per the band handbook's attendance policy, so these are things to be avoided! Please be responsible and do your part to keep our team running smoothly! 

    Thank you for your attention to this message.
