I'd like to welcome everyone back for the 2017-2018 school year! Myself, Mrs. Markiewicz, and Mr. Bleininger are excited for another year of music making with all of you. I'd like to extend a special welcome to our brand new 6th grade band students and families. We're excited to have our returning 7th and 8th grade students and families back as well.
Just a few quick items:
Please make sure that all 6th and 7th grade wind players (not percussion) have a copy of Essential Elements For Band Book 1 (yellow cover) 7th graders should already have a copy from last year. All 6th grade percussionists will need Fundamentals Of Rhythm For The Drummer by Joe Maroni.
All 8th graders (except percussion) should have Essential Elements For Band Book 2 (red cover) to start the year.
Polo Shirts (7th and 8th Only)
All 7th grade band members must purchase an LMS Band Polo that is to be worn with black pants and dress shoes for all performances. Students will be fit for polos shortly after we get started. Any 8th Grade student who needs a new polo can order a new shirt as well. I will have the price of the shirt available hopefully soon.
Updated Syllabus forms can be found under the 'Documents' tab. These forms serve as course outlines and also contain our performance dates for the year. Check the 'Important Dates' tab for a list of all of our performances this year.
We'll have more information to share once we're off and running. We're excited to get started and we're looking forward to a great year!
