Second Band Concert This Thursday!

Hi All,
Our second concert of the year is this Thursday, March 17th, here at Maywood. We will need help moving equipment to the gym at 5:30 pm. The goal is to be set up by 6:15 and have our pictures taken for the yearbook. If you are able to arrive at 5:30 please send me an email. All percussionists should plan to be here at 5:30 as well. 
Everyone else should be here by 6pm. 
Concert clothing information can be found in the handbook or in the email I just sent through Family Access.
We will also need help moving everything back to the band room after the concert. All percussionists must help move their equipment back as well.

Ms. S.

Registration for 2016-2017 Band at Maywood

Our current 6th and 7th graders are registering for next year’s classes. We have a new system which allows you to register for your electives online.
When registering for band please choose the grade level you will be going into.
At this point we aren’t sure how the classes will be divided. As our enrollment continues to grow we may have to add a second intermediate or advanced band.
I will be handing out audition material just in case we need to audition students for the advanced band(s).

I am so impressed with the progress all ensembles have made this year. 
I can’t wait to see (and hear J) where our musical experience takes us.

I hope to have trips for all 7th and 8th grade groups next year as well as festival performances.
My goal is to have an ensemble audition to perform at our Washington Music Educators Convention next February!

Maywood Music Rocks!!
Please contact me if you have scheduling issues, questions, or concerns.        Ms. S.

7th grade Symphonic Band breakfast team

Unfortunately the volunteer sign up for 7th grade Wed AM breakfast team was deleted and you will need to sign up again for the remaining March and May dates. I apologize for the inconvenience. 

7th grade Symphonic Band needs volunteers to provide breakfast for our Wednesday morning rehearsals. Volunteers select to provide drinks and cups or muffins/doughnuts and napkins. Volunteers should plan to have the food set up by 9:30. This involves pouring the juice and setting out the muffins/doughnuts. You do not have to stay.
There are 66 students.  I split the job up into three volunteers for each morning. One for juice and cups and two each for 33 muffins/doughnuts and napkins.
I've listed all the dates so you can plan ahead to volunteer. Thanks!
Ms. S.
