WELCOME TO THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR

We are so happy to have you join this amazing organization! Students will need their instruments and music every day in class, and we will hold after school rehearsals on Tuesday and Thursday until 5:30 this week. Students will not ride the bus home on these days (we have one every year who forgets and takes their bus home).


We want to assure everyone that the band is moving forward as planned with all of our normal activities. As always, the safety of our students and their families is our primary concern and we will comply with all GMSD Safety Policies as they relate to Covid.

 

ROCK-A-THON POSTPONED

Out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing Rockathon for the time being. We are hoping to hold it later in the semester when transmission of the virus has declined enough to allow for a mask free event.
