Rehearsal Attendance- Please make sure that you/your student is at rehearsal on time with the proper equipment. Attendance to evening rehearsals is essential in putting the whole production together and is part of the student's grade. Every time one person misses we must go back and review for that individual and thus takes away from the group progressing as a whole. Please review band handbook on www.thsimb.org for the attendance policy and notification procedures.

Practice: Students are expected to practice on non rehearsal nights to address specific areas in there music or visuals. Please help in monitoring this practice time and get involved in their practice session.

Grades: Midterm Grade cut off is this Thursday: Students please look over grades and make sure to turn in classwork and homework assignments to your teachers.  If you would like to go over your grade with me please come talk to me during flex time.

Spirit Wear Order: We are currently in the process of collecting a second order. Please use the online interface at http://thsimb.org/spiritwear/ and place your order through the website (https://squareup.com/store/tuscarora-high-school-instrumental-music-boosters). This Friday, 9/23/16, is the cut off for the second order.


Any questions please let me know. Thanks and have a great week!
