End-of-Year Activities and Communication

Dear HC Band Family,

I am writing to be sure everyone is up to date with the band schedule during our busiest time of year.  It is imperative that families are familiar with our band calendar and each individual responsibility through the end of the graduation ceremony.

I had to start each band class today by going down the banquet sign up sheet to get an answer from each of the 57 students that had NOT signed up one way or the other.  Even if families are not able to attend, we must know how many to prepare for next Monday, May 23rd at our banquet.  This is a great evening for the program and should be a chance to honor our seniors and reflect on the wonderful work done this year!  This event will NOT go as planned without the proper RSVP.

Please make note of the schedule until the end of the year:
