The high school band has been asked by WKAR to be involved in a film project that they are working on that highlights events/performances sponsored by the MSBOA. A film crew from WKAR is going to be coming to our high school on Friday, March 28th, during 4th hour to film our rehearsal. There is also a plan for us to travel to their studio in May to record our band festival pieces. Part of these segments will then air on a television show sometime in the fall.
In order for our students to participate in these events we need to have a Performance/Appearance Release form filled out. If a student is under 18 years old it must be signed by a parent. The form is attached. I would really appreciate having these forms returned by tomorrow, March 27th.
I'm looking forward to this special opportunity for our band students to be featured.
Thanks for your help in getting the necessary paperwork filled out. Please let me know if you have questions.
Attached is information about the Spartan Youth Wind Symphony. Interested students may apply online. This is a great honor band experience which I highly encourage students to try out for. We currently have nine students participating in the ensemble this year.
Please let me know if you have questions.
Thanks. Lynn Kelsey

We are in need of white Christmas lights--both icicle type and strands of white lights--to decorate the gym for the Evening of Jazz. Please make sure to label them with your name so we can return them to you after the event is over. Please plan to drop off these lights by Wednesday, March 26th, at the high school or middle school band room.

Attached is the schedule of times for the State Solo and Ensemble Festival to be held on Saturday, March 22nd, at Chelsea High School.
Our meeting for this month's band meeting on Wednesday, March 12th, will be a moved to the High School band room at 5:30 pm because, with the arrival of the new uniforms, we are going to be doing a bit of work for this booster meeting.
Over the weekend Larry and I spent some time in the band room doing some organizing. We got the uniforms in the room but still need to get the hats/shakos done. So we will be working on getting the hats/shakos unpacked and in the band room.
I am hoping to get this done the first hour and then go into the rest of the meeting, which will include the following:
We will still adjourn the meeting at 7:30 pm or as close to it as possible.
