TWIB Notes – Week of April 16, 2018

Good Morning!

Here are this week’s TWIB Notes…

Congratulations to the Winter Drum Line!! They earned the Bronze Medal in the PSA Class at the AIA Percussion Championships at South County High School this past weekend! This is the second straight year that the WDL has medaled at Championships! Congratulations, and Thanks, to all the students and staff on a great season!!

The April meeting of the Courtland Band Parents Association will be held tonight at 7:30 in the Band Room. We will be holding elections for our Board positions for 2018-19, looking at our proposed budget for 2018-19, and talking about other upcoming events such as Music in the Parks, Bingo, and more! Please, come out and see what you can do to help make our band program even stronger! Whether your child is in Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, Percussion Class,…or one of our Co-Curricular activities, we need your help! I hope to see you tonight!

Our first Music in the Parks event is this coming Saturday. Please, visit CHARMS to sign up to help OR you can email me to let me know that you would like to volunteer. Students can sign up in CHARMS or on the Sign-Up sheet in the Band Room. Students can earn community service hours for working. They need to pick up a green sheet from the guidance office.

Our Hersheypark trip is right around the corner (April 27). Please make sure you have your final payments in. I will send out the itinerary at the beginning of next week. Our Call time will be 4:45 AM on the 27th. We will have two “brief” rehearsals for the trip…Wednesday, 4/18 and Wednesday, 4/25 from 2:30-3:30 PM.
