WEEKLY SCHEDULE

Good afternoon, POTP!

A couple of quick things to touch on for our INSTRUMENTAL STUDENTS

As we continue in a hybrid schedule, with over half of our students learning in a virtual environment at any point in time, participation in our google meet rehearsals is critically important.  Our level of virtual participation has dropped significantly in the new year.  With fewer students actively participating in our rehearsals from home, our ability to adequately prepare our students for this spring’s Music Performance Assessment is considerably hindered.  Unless ill, daily participation in our virtual classes is expected for EVERY STUDENT when they are at home.  Additionally, in-person students are REQUIRED to attend the after-school rehearsals associated with their band class.  Now more than ever, these after-school rehearsals are CRITICAL!

CHAMBER WINDS (5th Period): 

  • January 21 (3:45-5:15) After-School Rehearsal
  • January 23 (9-Noon) Instrumental Mini-Camp with Adjunct Staff and Guest Clinician

SYMPHONIC BAND (1st and 6th Periods):

  • January 22 (3:45-5:15) After-School Rehearsal
  • January 23 (9-Noon) Instrumental Mini-Camp with Adjunct Staff and Guest Clinician

I’m excited about our Marching Music Minicamp!  This will be a chance to welcome our rising 9th graders into the program and lay a foundation for SUCCESS and FUN!  A complete listing of event is available at www.spainparkband.org/calendar but here is a quick listing of some important dates that happen immediately upon our return:

ALL INSTRUMENTALISTS (Current 8th-12th Grades):

Happy Thursday!
