Important announcements

Hello all,

Thank you very much for your hard work this semester. Below are a couple of important announcements.

Cookie Dough: Depending on the amount of boxes that your student sold, they may owe money towards their band performance polo. The goal was to sell 7 boxes to earn their band polo. Three dollars from every box sold goes towards their $21 band performance polo. This shirt is needed to perform at all CMS and CJHS Band events. Please contact me with any questions.

Cookie Dough Delivery: The cookie dough is set to come in on the second full week of October. It looks like Tuesday the 11th is our goal date to have the cookie dough delivered. If you would like to assist in organizing and counting the cookie dough I will need a lot of help during the school day. Please contact me if you are interested in volunteering.

Band Concerts: We finally have our two concerts set up for the school year. We will share with CMS Singers for both of these concerts. If your child is in both ensembles then they will be given plenty of time to change or transition as needed.

Our Holiday Concert is December the 12th beginning at 7PM.

     Our Spring Concert is May the15th beginning at 7PM.

    Report times for both concerts is 6PM at the Mabry Arts Center at the high school.

Playing Test: We had a very successful first playing test last week. A student may make up any test grade for me throughout the year. Please check their grade and encourage them to push for a 100. Also keep an eye on their practice log grade and their weekly participation grade. Students with great practice log grades and participation grades are more likely to excel on playing tests.

Please contact me with any questions:

Practice Logs

Good afternoon,

We had a pretty good turnout for the cookie dough fundraiser today. If your child did not turn in their money and form today then they must turn it in tomorrow.

PLEASE make sure to sign the practice log that your child has been filling out this week. Every single Friday we will check that for a grade. They are not required to practice for much, but for just an hour total per week. They may break it up however they want as long as they are taking an hours worth of time throughout the week to reinforce what we learn in class.

Thank you for supporting our fantastic band students!



Cookie dough turn in

Good evening,

Please read the letter sent home today about our cookie dough fundraiser. Our orders can get sent out sooner if we have little to no mistakes. Please take the time to double check the amount on the form and approve that it matches the money turned in.

Thank you for all of your hard work!
