What an amazing debut of our second show of the season, “A Night at the Movies”! I continue to be amazed by the talents of our students. This week we travel to Arcadia
High School which is almost 2 hours away, so please be prepared for a later arrival time back to Grandview on Friday night. Can you believe we are almost halfway through the season???
Each band member received a flip folder from the band at the beginning of their freshman year. The flip folder allows your student to conveniently keep their music organized and transport it easily.
If your student has misplaced their flip, it is their responsibility to replace it. Flip folders are available from Stanton’s Sheet Music (330 South Fourth St), Music & Arts (Graceland Shopping Center), Buckeye Brass (7445 Montgomery Dr, Plain City), or online. Flip folders come standard with 5 ‘windows.’ It is recommended you purchase extra windows to accommodate all the music distributed.
We have three more Evening Rehearsals for this season and that number will not increase. All three rehearsals are considered required and will be calculated into your grade. Exceptions to the requirement are (1) for athletes who have traveling matches which return later than 9:00PM, or, (2) on a case-by-case basis as needed. Work and non-Grandview Heights activities should be scheduled around Evening Rehearsals; please submit the dates above to your work management or advisors.
Our next night rehearsal is Thursday, September 28th, 8:00-10:00PM.
Band Parent Association - September Meeting
Our next Band Parent Association meeting will be next Thursday, September 21 at 6:30PM in the New Middle School Media Center. We hope to see you there!
