Important Info For FMB 2016 Parents...

Recap from the FMB 2016 Parent Meeting April 12, 7pm
If a member of your family did not attend the parent meeting on April 12, you MUST read all of this the bottom.
*It's going to be an exciting year for the FMB!  We will compete three times this year, as well as perform at the Circleville Pumpkin Show. It is a later contest season than we usually attempt, but I believe it will work to our advantage. Contests are at Dublin Jerome, Kettering Fairmont, and Thomas Worthington.
*Attendance at every rehearsal and performance is required.  Students taking band for credit will be held accountable in the handbook grading policy and it will be strictly enforced.  Except in the case of personal illness, all excuses must be submitted in advance (48 hours for rehearsals and 14 days for performances) and must fit the handbook criteria for an excused absence.  Not having a ride, having to babysit, family vacations and the like are not excused absences.  Tolles s…
