Quarterly Newsletters and updates from the Band Director and Parent Boosters.
As we begin the last quarter of the school year, we are preparing for the final push toward next year. Our 6th and 7th graders are already registered for next year's classes, incoming 5th graders have also made their elective choices and are being placed, while 8th graders look ahead to promotion to high school and the new experiences awaiting them there. However, before we get to all of that, we've got a busy couple of months!
Coming off of their festival performance last month, the Symphonic Band will be taking a trip to Magic Mountain on May 9th to perform at the Golden Bear stage, then enjoy the park! Participation in this trip will not affect students grades but will hinge upon the requirements as listed in the Band Information Manual. More information will be sent home soon!
Many students have already begun raising funds for their Magic Mountain trip with the current Mary Kay Fundraiser which ends on Friday (April 6th). All money is due by the end of the school day!
All students were encouraged to participate in this fundraiser, as the Boosters decided to bank students' funds from fundraisers as a way to boost participation across all classes and so that music students next year would have money to pay for their future trips as well! Students will usually split any earnings with the Boosters to keep the music program going strong and offset other costs.
The next fundraiser will be for 7th and 8th grade students interested in marching in the Fillmore Spring Festival. Students will be looking for sponsors for their March-a-thon to be held on April 28th. Information will be sent home soon!
Speaking of the Boosters, it's that time of year where we are looking for new parents to join in for next year. Our current Booster officers are all moving up along with their students to the High School and we need YOU to fill their shoes. Our next meeting on Tuesday, April 10th is a good time to start!
Important Upcoming Dates: Band Booster Meeting - April 10th; Symphonic Band @ Magic Mountain - May 9; Symphonic Band @ Spring Festival - May 19; Spring Concert - May 23
