THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR AN EXCELLENT SCHOOL YEAR!!!!
Information For The End Of The School Year.
Dear Band Parents,
The Spring concert is quickly approaching and there are a few questions you may have. The concert will be held on Wednesday, May 24th at 7:00 p.m. at West Ridge School. The concert will be over by 8:00 p.m. Please have your Advanced Band member report to West Ridge School at 6:00 p.m. This is the only time both East Brook and West Ridge Advanced Band members will get to rehearse together. All Beginner Band Members should report to West Ridge School at 6:30 p.m.
All students will need their instrument and music and to be dressed nicely. Shirts with collars, blouses, slacks, pants, dresses and skirts are all acceptable. Please do not have the children wear jeans, T-shirts, sneakers or flip-flops. Shoes, boots or sandals with straps around the ankle are also acceptable.
Although early morning band rehearsals stop after the concert, music lessons continue during the school day until the end of the school year. As was stated in the sign up materials, the fourth and fifth grade band members perform during the sixth grade promotion ceremony. The ceremony will be held in the High School Little Theater on Wednesday, June 14th. East Brook will have its ceremony at 3:00 p.m. while West Ridge will have its ceremony at 6:00 p.m. Please have your 4th or 5th grade band member report to the High School Little Theater 30 minutes before the ceremony. The promotion ceremony will last one hour for band members taking a total of one and a half hours of their time.
If you have any other questions that I was not able to answer, please let me know and I will be happy to help. Thank you very much for all your help and support throughout the year.
