If you receive a red Spartan Band folder before the 11th – you should definitely be attending rehearsal! If you didn’t – no worries! Mr. Heckman and Ms. Schoener will be hearing you perform at your lesson to see how much you remembered over the summer! If you show us you have progressed far enough in your book, you will receive your band folder and we will look for you at Spartan Band practice on Thursdays! 🙂
We are quickly approaching another very exciting school year in the world of instrumental music! We hope you have been practicing regularly over the summer and are excited to see how much you have learned! Homeroom teachers will receive copies of the instrumental music lesson schedules to post in their rooms – students should check to see when their first lesson will be. All lessons will begin in September. Be sure to check the Schedule and Calendar pages for rehearsal dates, times, etc.! See you soon!
