Upcoming Events

Greetings Wildcat Band Family,

It was another terrific week of musical and personal growth in all of our classes. There were no assignments due in the 7th grade classes this week as we were finishing Blind Test #2 (graded and in HAC, but please know it is for reference only. The assignment is weighted to zero so it does not impact the grade. Just a reference to how students did playing a short excerpt of concepts taught between November and early January)

8th Grade band has an assignment due on Tuesday that is posted in google classroom.

Grades are 100% up to date with any assignment or practice record turned in by 9:00am Saturday, February 12th. If there is an "N" the student has not turned anything in. A "Z" means they turned something in but it was incomplete. Any assignment (except practice records) can be practiced, re recorded and turned back in for a higher grade before the end of the quarter.

8th Grade Band - please remember that we will have a full band rehearsal on Tuesday 3:45-5:30pm with special guest Mr. Chris Moore, Director of Bands at LJHS!

Percussion WILL have their weekly sectional Wednesday until 4:45.

Stay healthy, stay well and have a band-tastic week!

-Mr. Jones
