Date: November 12th 2017
Congratulations to 8th graders Bailey Powell on Flute, Tyrece Rice on Tenor Saxophone, Trevor Jones on Trumpet, Ella Burt on French Horn, Abby Guest on Baritone and Leah Kuo for representing FCV at All-Region Honor Band this weekend at Greenfield Central High School!!!
Practice Cards- due Monday, 140 minutes=100%! This week students should still be practicing this week for a practice card that is due after Thanksgiving Break (Nov 27). During Thanksgiving break students will receive bonus points for any time that they have practiced.
Pep Band- Another game this Thursday, November 16. Same agenda as last time, except we'll try to play through the 8th grade game as well! Pizza will be provided. Thank you to all who have donated 2 liter drinks. Mt. Dew, fruit punch & orange drink seem to be our popular drinks for those who can still contribute! We will then have quite a few weeks off until the Belzer game in December!
Winter Concert- It will be here before you know it. December 13 is the band concert for all band students: 7pm is the beginning band & advanced jazz band, 8pm is the concert band & symphonic band concerts. This is the first for beginning band so please make sure students can find their polos & havc black pants to wear. There are still quite a few students who have not paid for their polo yet. Please send $15 as soon as possible.
ISSMA- All students should have gotten a paper about ISSMA Solo and Ensemble contest in Janury. Students need to return this form as a homework assignment by this Wednesday, November 15. This is an OPTIONAL performance at Doe Creek Middle School, but all students WILL perform an ensemble for the class. We will work on these ensembles in class. Going to the ISSMA contest does cost a little bit of money and is held on Saturday, January 27, 2018. I have attached that form if your child has lost it or not turned it in yet. The front has the explanation of ISSMA & decision NOT to go & the back side is the side with the price if your child DOES want to go.
Thank you to everyone who has sold fundraiser items and for all of you have donated to the band department. YOU are what helps keep the FCV band program going!!
As always, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Shannon Jones & Emily Trapani
