Announcements

Sailor Band Families, 

It was so great seeing everyone back in the building this week and we are so excited to start playing music with you next week!  Please see below for a few quick reminders:

  1. Anyone with uniforms or Wind Ensemble or Jazz Ensemble music should bring that to school on Monday or Tuesday

  2. If you have a school owned instrument, please let Mr. Sarns know so we can update our inventory.  

  3. All students will need to bring a binder with sheet protectors for their music.  

  4. It is more important than ever that students study privately if they are able to at this time.  With our contact time limited to twice a week, that individual attention through private lessons would make a huge difference.  If you are interested in lessons, or are currently taking lessons, please let us know by submitting this form.  Sailor Band Lesson Sign Up

  5. All State information was passed out this week.  Forms are due back by Tuesday, September 22nd.  For more information, see Mr. Boyden or Mr. Sarns.  

  6. Limited Edition Mona Shores logo face masks and water bottles are being sold to raise money for our band program.  An order form is attached to this email. 

  7. Specially designed PPE will be passed out for woodwind and brass players.  Percussionists may continue to use their own face coverings. 

  8. Pep Band, Drumline and Front Ensemble will be rehearsing Wednesday, September 16th from 1:30-2:50 pm in the E parking lot. For your convenience, this has been scheduled during our normal 5th period contact time.  

  9. We are in the process of scheduling performances in October for Pep Band.  While MHSAA has resumed football season, they are not permitting bands at football games as crowd size is limited to two family members per competitor.  

We understand how unusual this start to school has been and we are so grateful for your flexibility and positive attitude during this last week.  It has been a highlight to see our students back at school and we can’t wait to begin playing music with you next week.  

 

Mr. Boyden and Mr. Sarns
