This Week In Band
Happy Mother's Day! - We're getting close to the end of the year with 10 more days of school and 9 days until graduation. I will be updating the band list shortly. If you are a senior parent you will be removed after graduation (unless you want to stay on, if you do please email me and let me know) If your son/daughter is not a senior, and is not continuing in band, please email me and I'll take your name off the list too.
All Band Picnic - Friday, May 15th 4-7 pm at Cactus Park. Students from all bands are welcome. Any 8th graders who are going to be in band are encouraged to attend. Parents are also welcome. The Booster's are providing subs. Current 9-11th graders will help out with:
Freshman - dessert
Sophomores - sides (salads, chips, dip, fruit, etc)
Juniors - drinks (water, capri sun, soda, Gatorade in a cooler with ice; individual servings please)
Graduation is Thursday, May 21. If your student is in band, they are playing at graduation (unless they are graduating). Please be prepared and have your students study for their Friday finals early as they will be at graduation on Thursday. Check with your student for call time. They will be bused over to Wells Fargo arena and bused back to Chaparral. Graduation starts at 7:30 and will go until about 9:30.
