Grade 8/9 Early Morning Band Info

 

February 14th, 2017 and February 22nd, 2017: There will be NO early morning band for grade 8/9 students this Thursday, due to the Teachers Convention.  Early morning band for grade 8/9 will resume on February 23rd.

January 8th, 2016: Early morning band resumes this Thursday (January 12th).

Early morning band is mandatory for students in Grade 8 and 9.  Arrival time is 8 am, and attendance forms part of the student’s mark.

If a student is ill or has a legitimate reason for missing practice, please email Ms. Bolen at jcbolen@cbe.ab.ca, and she will assign the student a four page essay on The Importance Of Dynamics In Music And How It Contributes To Mood.  Just kidding; she’ll give the student an excused absence.

Early morning band is not without perks: we are introducing Breakfast and Band, starting October 20th, where we will provide a healthy snack to all attendees at the commencement of practice.  How can you help with this?  So glad you asked!  Please contact Elaine Gidluck at elaine@gidluck.ca, or Jackie Prokop at jackie.prokop@shaw.ca.
