Dear Band Family,
We are looking forward to starting another exciting school year with your children tomorrow!
Reminder: Students do NOT need instruments for any band class tomorrow, but should have instruments beginning Thursday. Jazz Band WILL meet in the morning at 7:30 AM in the band room where we will cover the course syllabus and discuss auditions for placement including handing out music for saxes, trumpets, and trombones. Anyone interested in advanced jazz this year should attend!
Our Band Parents typically meet the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 PM in the band room. There are a few holidays, concerts, etc. causing the Band Parent meetings to occasionally occur on the 2nd Monday of the month. All meetings have been entered into the online Charms calendar at www.henryclayband.org See the online calendar for all band events and activities! You can sync your phones to this calendar too!
With the Dr. Tim Leadership Seminar next Monday night, the first Band Parent meeting of the year will actually occur next Tuesday, August 21st at 7:00 PM in the orchestra room. I felt it necessary to meet as quickly as possible to start the year and begin regular communication. This should be the only Tuesday meeting date.
These meetings are for ALL (marching and non) Band Parents! One of the reasons the HC Band Program has experienced great success throughout our storied tradition and history is a strong band parent organization and many dedicated and involved parents! Please come out to see how we can make the HC Band experience the best in KY!
The student leadership team, the Band Council meets on the same days as the band parents at 3:30 PM after school.
We are excited and we look forward to working with you!
