6th Band Schedule Update

Here's the new adjusted schedule for 6th grade band:

11:15-11:30 Band students eat lunch in the cafeteria

11:30-12:00 Band class

*Students still need eat somewhat quickly and be in their seats and ready to rehearse at 11:30am.
*Classes are still on a three day rotation A (brass), B (woodwinds), C (percussion).
*Students will not have band class on 2-hour delay days.

6th Band Lunch/Class Routine

As there seems to be quite a bit of confusion even after several attempts on my part to clarify to students and staff members, here is what 6th grade band members MUST do on their band day:

1. Be lined up at the classroom door when the bell rings for lunch at 11:11am.
2. Get your lunch QUICKLY. Band members are allowed to the front of the line on their band day.
3. Eat your lunch in the CAFETERIA.
4. Finish you lunch quickly and get to the band room by 11:25 so we can maximize our 20 minutes of class time.

Welcome Back, Musicians!

I would like to officially welcome back to school all of my band and general music students for the 2015-2016 school year!  I sincerely hope you had a nice vacation and did things that made you happy, and that you are recharged and ready for another session of learning about life and music.

The Fairbanks Marching Band has been hard at work since July 20 preparing their 2015 competition show.  This year's production is based on the opera "Carmen" by Georges Bizet, one of the best and most famous operas of all time.  They will be ready for the home opener football game on Friday, August 28. They will be attending competitions at Westerville Central on September 26, OSU on October 6, and Dublin Jerome on October 10.
