Booster Meeting Tomorrow!
As indicated in the 6th Grade Itinerary, which was passed-out last week, Beginning Band members can stay after school in the cafeteria. I recommend that all 6th graders stay after so they don't miss the performance! If you do not stay after, call time is 5:30PM in the cafeteria.
Make sure you bring your instrument, music, band shirt, and kaki pants or shorts!
If you are still missing a band shirt, make sure you've paid the band fee and then see Mr. Foster for one during class.
New Handbooks Are Out!
As mentioned at Curriculum Night, the reason we were delayed in printing these was the alignment with new ACS policies and procedures. The new Medical Form and Travel Policies are the same for all arts and sports activities in the new district, so please make sure to notice the changes.
6th Grade students only need to return Pages 13 and 14, as they do not travel outside of Arlington. They do not need to fill out the Medical Form.
All 7th and 8th graders must additionally sign, notarize, and return Pages 11 and 12 by November 3rd in order to travel with the band. This is to ensure prompt and effective medical treatment in the rare and unanticipated event of an emergency.
If you need an additional digital copy of the Handbook for any reason, please visit my website page: http://www.arlingtonmsband.com/forms.html.
AHS Tiger Band 8th Grade Night
The AHS band needs an accurate count to know how many Flags, Drums, and Sousaphones to have ready. They also need to know how many students and parents will be attending, so they know how much Free Food to make!
The form should answer any question you may have about the event on September 30th, and digital copies are available at http://www.arlingtonmsband.com/forms.html.
