Students and Parents,
I hope that everyone had a great weekend, and I certainly hope that everyone stayed warm during this cold weather.
At this time I would like to announce some big changes I will have to make for the remainder of our school year. I know that many students will be disappointed, but this was one of those tough decisions I had to make. We will no longer have jazz band, drumline, rock band, or symphonic band for the remainder of this school year. There are some very important classes that I just found out I need to take, so I will be in school every night of the week. Next year everything will be back to normal. For those students that were in the symphonic band, we will now have one huge wind ensemble. The wind ensemble will now rehearse every Monday and Thursday morning from 7:45-9.
Please understand that this was a very tough and difficult decision, but I hope you trust that this is an urgent situation. I am really looking forward to having everything back to normal next year. We will still have our band banquet, end of year trip, solo and ensembles, etc… I will pass out a new calendar this week.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
