We hope this update finds you and your family well. It has been a very busy fall for our EILMS bands, diligently preparing for the Fall Concert. It is just over a month away -
Wednesday, November 13. More details below.
Concert Participation/Summative Assessment
The importance of concerts cannot be stressed enough. They serve as the culmination of preparation each quarter, and serve as a showcase. Illness or family emergencies are acceptable reasons for missing a concert; but all situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Students who are unexcused for a concert will not receive credit for the performance. If a student is ill or otherwise cannot participate, the concert will not be included in the quarter grade. If you know of a conflict with the schedule below; please contact Mr. Heath (5-7 Bands) or Herrmann (8 Band) as soon as possible.
Boys: Navy Blue “Grandview Heights Band” Polo Shirt, Khaki colored dress pants, dress shoes and socks.
Girls: Navy Blue “Grandview Heights Band” Polo Shirt, Khaki colored pants or skirt of appropriate length; dress shoes, socks/hose.
A separate email announcement regarding the polos was sent, by Julie Rutter (GHBPA Communications Secretary), to all 5-8 band parents in our email directory. It is very possible your student requested a hard copy as well. All 5th grade students have been fitted and polos ordered by the Grandview Heights Band Parent Association. Polos are $15 and the GHBPA asks you to submit your payments (cash or check to Grandview Heights Band Parent Association) to Claire Parson - secretary at EILMS.
Don’t forget! Wednesday, November 13th - Edison Intermediate/Larson Middle School Band Concert featuring the 5th through 8th Grade Bands. Below is the important information:
