With all of the bitter cold weather, tonight's JH band parents meeting is cancelled. I can go over everything right here.
HJH & Gilbert INFO
The spring trips will be here before we know it. All money for both the HJH and Gilbert trips are due on February 9th. HJH students should have all $75 paid by this date. All Gilbert students should have all $50 paid by this date. If you can't get it taken care of by then, please let me know and we can work something out. If you are unsure about how much your student still owes, please don't hesitate to email me.
Chaperones! If you are interested in chaperoning a trip, please let me know. Right now, we should have enough for the JH trip. We need more for the Gilbert trip on May 12th. If you are interested, let me know.
Our spring fundraiser with both HJH and Gilbert started last week and runs through next Wednesday.
Don't forget that the private lessons program is up and running. The cost of each lesson is $16. The Stephenville band fans do offer $8 scholarships to make your cost only $8. Private lessons are a great help and I encourage everyone to participate. If you are interested in having your student take private lessons from a specialist on their specific instrument, please let me know.
Mark your calendars.......Spring Concert will be May 10th.
For those JH students that made the All-Region Band, the concert is next Saturday January 27th at Stephenville High School at 6:00 PM. We will have 2 more rehearsals in order to prepare on January 17th, and 24th.
HJH students will have the opportunity to play at the Texanns basketball game on February 13. Sign up list is in the band hall.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
We finally have a venue to perform at on the spring trip. Below is information and a tentative schedule for the trip. Remeber that if you have a season pass, you may use it and the cost is $35 less. Just let me know that you have one.
