2016-2017 Reminders! 

Upcoming Field Trips:

Six Flags: Friday, May 19, 2017

NYC: Aladdin, Wed., May 24, 2017

Cape May County Concert Band Festival: Thursday, May 25, 2017

 

What Do I Need:

Lessons have officially begun!  Please remind students that they have their seating audition at their next lesson.  Student must have the following items for their lesson next week (if there are issues, please let me know before their lesson):

o   1” Binder

o   5 Dividers

o   Essential Elements Book 2 (for their instrument)

 

Fundrasiing:

There are no more fundrasining opportuntites this year.

 

The band and string ensemble have two trips planned this year:

o   NYC Trip (estimated cost between $130-$150), Wednesday, May 24 (more info to come)

o   Six Flags Competition (estimated cost at $75), Friday, May 19th (more info to come)

I am very aware that having two trips increases the financial burden on families, especially 7th grade families (STOKES).  Although this is not my intention, it is a reality.  In an effort to help with the cost of these activities, the music department establishes multiple opportunities for fundraising.  As each opportunity presents itself, please take the time to consider participating to reduce the burden that inherently exists.  Staff members at the IS  are very supportive with all of these opportunities.  Should you have serious financial concerns, please contact me at your earliest convenience.
