Non-returning students – uniforms

Final call for uniforms!

If you are a graduating senior or will not be returning to band/orchestra next year, we need to collect your uniforms ASAP. ALL uniform pieces and money for drycleaning must be turned in by this Friday, May 24th. Any outstanding debts will be reported to the school by this Friday and graduation tickets/next year’s schedule release will be affected.

For those who are returning to band/orchestra next year (yay!), please keep the uniform at home. We will make any size adjustments and add a jacket or dress if necessary in the Fall.

Adjustments to the 2019-2020 schedules are still being made. If your student intends to stay in band/orchestra, please hold onto the uniform. Thanks!

Graduation National Anthem – Info for Seniors

Hello Senior Families,

As many of you already know, seniors perform the National Anthem at graduation (Thursday, June 6th) with the rest of band/orchestra/instrumental music. All seniors from band/orchestra will be seated together typically in one row.  This is to eliminate the need to climb over other students in order to perform.  Their instrument will be placed on a chair in front of the Band/Orchestra so they may go right over to the Band/Orchestra, perform the National Anthem and then return to their seats.

If your senior is using one of the band/orchestra’s instrument there is a few things they need to do in order to play.  First, they will have to have the contract (click here for a copy) completed with all signatures by Monday, June 3rd.  Failure to do so will mean they CANNOT perform during the graduation ceremony.  There will be NO exceptions to this deadline.  Please keep in mind that they will still be seated in the band/orchestra section regardless of returning the signed contract.  Secondly, they will need to be here by 4:15pm to assemble their instrument and give it to the person they designated to carry (9th/10th/11th grader) it to the field, this also applies to those seniors using their own instrument.  Since seniors are required to be at the gym to line up for graduation at 4:30, there is ample time to complete this task.   Again, failure to do so means they will not be able to perform the National Anthem during graduation.  Finally, the band/orchestra instrument must be returned to the band/orchestra room within 30 minutes of the hat toss.  We will have a special table set up specifically for seniors to make sure this goes quickly.  Failure to return the band/orchestra instrument in its entirety (all parts of the instrument and case) that night will result in their diploma being withheld.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janis at 824-2337 or coordinator@analybandwagon.org.

Thank You!
