You can nominate whatever parent/guardian/alum you’d like - in early February I’ll send another one to vote for the final candidate.
Anyone interested in marching band leadership positions (of any type) should fill this out. I’ll send you a proposed interview time - if it doesn’t work for you, let me know and we can reschedule.
Hello - please see below for announcements for January…
We are cancelling tonight’s meeting and all “monthly band parents meetings” moving forward. I will instead be making a newsletter that I will blast out.
The reasoning for this is that everything I cover in a meeting, I end up putting online anyway. We have no account that we control that requires parent voting - and as such it’s a redundant practice that I found unnecessary after 2.5 years.
I will continue to reach out for volunteers for specific things. Speaking of volunteers, I will be pushing out a request form to NOMINATE and then VOTE on interested volunteer coordinators. I will have more information within the forms themselves ASAP.
If we ever need to HAVE a meeting (i.e. next year’s Solo & Ensemble hosting) - we will certainly call those meetings.
St. Louis Reminder: Please fill out the permissions packet and turn in to Mr. W as soon as you can. Please make sure you’re on top of your payments - the sum total is due before we depart, but make sure you’re not having to put down a lump sum right before summer vacation.
Jazz Band: Plan on rehearsing tomorrow (1/9) after school. I haven’t heard back from Mr. Lyle yet but will let you know as soon as I do.
