On behalf of the band program, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. With the start of a new school year come new teachers, classes, expectations, and procedures. It is my sincerest hope that you will not only enjoy your musical experience this year, but you will be challenged as well; not just learning about or performing music but to become more productive members of society. Ultimately, this band program belongs to YOU, the student, so you determine the quality and reputation of this program. In striving for success, it is necessary that this environment be conducive to learning and as a member it is your responsibility to conduct yourself in a manner that will bring pride to and enhance the reputation of this program.
I look forward to working with each student, fostering their musical and academic growth, as well as their professional and social behaviors. My expectations are high but I assure you that every goal set is attainable if every student puts forth their best effort. The middle school experience is a critical developmental stage in the lives of our students, and by being a part of the band they belong to a group with whom they share many positive experiences and can be a great support system through this stage. I strongly encourage active participation and support from each parent as well.
It is imperative that each student knows what they are responsible for. If there are any questions pertaining to any of the information found on this site please feel free to contact the band office. Thank you again for your active participation and I hope this will be a great year and that your student falls more in love with music throughout their matriculation through this school. I expect great things and you will see results.
