All Bands & Orchestra – Welcome!

Hello Bands & Orchestra Families,

Welcome back to all the returning families and welcome to the new families!  We hope everyone enjoyed their summer break and are ready for the new school year.  Please note that all emails will have the band and/or orchestra name in the subject line of the email that effects that ensemble. For instance, if the subject line has Jazz Band and your student is not in Jazz Band just disregard the email.

Some of you might have already seen the new instrument check-out form coming home for parents/guardians to sign.  If your student is borrowing one of the band and/or orchestra instrument they need to have the form completed and returned to Janis in the band/orchestra office.  If your student is using their personal instrument this does not affect them.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Janis (our new Program Coordinator) in the band/orchestra office at 824-2337.

Maestro would like to invite all of you to attend the Parent Meeting on Wednesday, August 22nd.  PLEASE NOTE: this meeting will be held in the Band Room, not the Cafeteria. New families are asked to arrive at 6:30pm and ALL families are asked to arrive at 7pm.  We will be covering topics such as communication between the band/orchestra program & families, uniforms, Giant’s game, Spring Break Trip, ABW, etc. If you know of any incoming freshmen families that might not be signed up to receive our emails, please share this information with them.  We hope to see EVERYONE there!

Giant’s tickets are on sale NOW!  We will be performing the National Anthem at the Giant’s game on Wednesday, September 26th.  Tickets are $25 each (including students).  You can send check or cash with your student. Make checks payable to Analy Band Wagon.  You may also purchase Giant’s tickets after the Parent Meeting on Wednesday.  You will have the option to pay with a credit card that evening.  There will be future emails regarding the Giant’s game which will include a time-line, permission slips, and other details.  Please purchase your tickets as soon as possible, they are sold on a first-come basis.

Again, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Janis at 824-2337.

We are so excited for the 2018-19 school year!
