TWIB Notes – Week of February 26, 2018

Here are this weeks notes and reminders…

This is a very busy time of year for the CHS Band Program. We have a lot going on, so please make note of the events that we have scheduled, upcoming deadlines, etc. Also, don’t forget to check the calendar on the website (www.courtlandbands.com) for the complete schedule and to see where we need volunteers.

Those of you who signed up for the Spring Trip in April, I will be sending out an email later this morning with more information and final payment details. Please be on the lookout for that.

All-County Band students are reminded to turn in their permission slips to me as soon as possible. Remember to check the schedule. Also, don’t forget to talk to your B-day teachers to let them know that you will not be there on Friday. The Concert will be held on Saturday at 4:00 PM at Spotsylvania High School. The Concert is FREE and open to the public.

We need your help…with Bingo at The Knights of Pythias. We need 4-5 students and/or parents to help out each Sunday afternoon and Monday evening. This is open to anyone in the CHS Band Program (Marching Band, Winter Drum Line, Winter Guard, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band). You earn point for your band account and The Knights of Pythias make a donation of $500 every month to the CHS Band Program. If everyone signs up to help out 3 or 4 times per year, we can keep this going. If we can’t get people to volunteer then we could lose the $6000 that is donated to our program each year. Contact Josh LeBlanc at cbpa2ndvp@gmail.com for more information.

VBODA State Concert Assessment is less than a month away. Make sure you are practicing…and that you are working toward mastery of your parts. Check the schedule for our upcoming after-school rehearsals.
