It’s hard to believe that the end of the semester is just around the corner… and so is our concert! I just wanted to send you a few reminders about the concert. Our concerts will be on Tuesday, December 4th, 2018 at Northeast State’s Regional Center for the Performing Arts. That morning, we will be playing two concerts for Holston Elementary and Holston Middle School/Innovation Academy. These will begin around 8:30am and 9:30am and are these concerts open to the public. For these concerts, students will need to wear their HMS Band t-shirts and blue jeans.
The night performance for friends and family will begin at 6:30pm at Northeast State. The students will need to wear their HMS Band Polos and khaki pants (or skirts for the ladies, of course meeting dress code). The 6th grade students will need to arrive at 6:15 SHARP. Please be on time! The 7th and 8th grade students will need to arrive at Northeast State at 6:50pm that evening. Please be on time! This assures we have time to get everyone on stage and warm-up before the concert begins.
The concerts are a requirement for a grade for the second nine weeks grading period and any absence will have to be discussed and excused PRIOR to the concerts. Any unexcused absence will result in a zero for the performance grade for the nine weeks counting 25% of the final grade.
It has been a great school year and I am looking forward to wrapping up the first semester with excellent concerts!
THANKS for your support and helping the HMS/IA Band!
ALSO – the fruit fundraiser will arrive at the Sullivan Central High School Band Room on Wednesday, December 5th. Pick-up will be from 3pm – 6pm. PLEASE make arrangements to get your fruit during this time – the earlier the better! I cannot express how much your efforts are appreciated!
