Symphonic Band, Jazz Band & Orchestra – Middle School Tour

Honor/Jazz Bands & Full Orchestra Families,

We are getting ready for the Middle School Tour on Monday, February 26th.  This is when the three ensembles tour Twin Hills MS, Sun Ridge Charter and Hillcrest MS.  It is important that all students complete and return their permission slips as soon as possible.  They are required to have two forms completed, the medical release form CLICK HERE and the teacher release form CLICK HERE.  Hard copies of these forms are available in the band/orchestra office, see Dawn.  Since students will be gone the entire school day, they will need to have all their teachers to sign the release form.  Both permission slips need to be turned into Dawn by Friday, February, 23rd.

The bands & orchestra will be taking school buses.  We will need a couple of chaperones on each bus.  If you are interested in chaperoning, please contact Dawn at or 707-824-2337.  Dawn will again be driving a 24ft. rental truck that will be used to transport the larger instruments.  If you know the routes between the three middle schools and would like to be a co-pilot, contact her.

Again this is an all-day event, please make sure your student brings money or a bag lunch for when we have our lunch break.  Also, please have your student bring a water bottle and a snack to keep their energy level up.  Below is the timeline for the 2018 Middle School Tour.  If you have any questions or concerns, please give Dawn a call/email.
