Announcements:

            Playing tests will be the week of Feb 9th. Please check your practice card to see what your test is going to be. Practice cards are due Feb 12th. If you turn in practice cards late, they will not reflect on report cards for that trimester.

            There will be a beginning band boot camp on Wednesday and Friday Feb 4th and 6th in the evening for those who are going to be starting in beginning band/orchestra. This would also be a good opportunity if you are in beginning band/orchestra and feel like you could use some extra help. Please contact me for more information.
