2021 Graduation Performance
Thursday, June 3rd | 5:30pm
Who is Performing?
Symphonic Band will be performing with select students from Concert Band and Orchestra. Originally we wanted all ensembles to perform, however, due to Covid restrictions, we were limited to the number of students who could perform. Mr. Jones has provided other final options for Concert Band.
Graduation rehearsal is TOMORROW -- Tuesday, May 25th
3-4:30pm - All non-seniors (National Anthem, Land of 1000 Dances, Sprit of Analy, Fanfare and Processional/Pomp and Circumstance)
~3-3:30pm - Seniors (National Anthem) for approximately the first 30 mins
Thursday, June 3rd - Call Time
Students should arrive at 4pm in the band/orchestra room to prepare their instrument and music.
Seniors!! -- June 3rd INFO
Seniors also need to arrive by 4:15pm with their instrument.
This applies to seniors using band/orchestra instruments AND those who are using their personal instruments.
Seniors will hand off their instrument to their “designated instrument carrier” and then head to the gym to line up for graduation. (Senior Contracts are due THIS FRIDAY, May 28th.)
Please check your email for more information that applies to seniors only.
Students should wear:
Black pants (black jeans are acceptable) or skirts (knee length or longer)
Nice white shirt
ALL black shoes (they do not have to be closed toe)
Students will also need to bring their instrument mask, bell cover, etc. if PPE is appropriate for their instrument. Please prepare for changes in weather (i.e. layers.) Students are encouraged to wear sunglasses and sunscreen as we are usually facing the sun. Finally, make sure your student has something to eat prior to arriving as they will not have an opportunity to eat until after graduation, approximately 7-7:30pm.
All students need to check-in their band/orchestra instrument right after graduation. If your student would like to check out their band/orchestra instrument for the summer, there will be a specific table to do so. Please DO NOT leave any personal instruments in the band/orchestra room over the summer.
Seniors who are playing their own instrument for graduation, please check-in any band/orchestra instruments prior to the end of the school year.
After the Graduation Ceremony
We expect the graduation ceremony to end approximately 7-7:30pm. We have no control over the exact ending time. All students (non-seniors) must check out with Janis after the graduation ceremony. The campus will be very crowded and busy immediately after graduation. Please work out a plan with your student (i.e. walk home, meet at Safeway/The Barlow, pick up in band room, drive themselves home, etc.)
Please contact Janis if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or (707) 824-2337.
