posted May 6, 2014, 10:32 AM by Memorial Middle School Band

Dear MMS Band Families,

As the end of the school year quickly approaches, we have some reminders and information for the summer months -

1.   The last day students need instruments is Monday, May 12.  All instruments must be out of the building by Wednesday, May 14th  

2.  School Instruments - Will be distributed to students for summer use next week.  There is no fee for using a school instrument over the summer!

3.  Middle School All-State Band - It is time to start the audition process for Middle School All-State Band.  Memorial had 7 amazing musicians make the group this year.  Our goal next year is 10 or more!  We have many talented students that CAN make this group with the proper preparation.  Audition music is available at www.sdmea.net

4.  Summer Band - The registration form for the Sioux Falls Parks & Rec Summer Youth Band is available on the band website.  This is an amazing opportunity for band students to continue playing over the summer in a fun and supportive environment!  Registration is due by Friday, May 30 at any parks & rec center or online.

5.  Private Lessons - The summer months are a great time to enroll your student with a private instructor.  A current list of private teachers recommended by the district is available on the "Forms and Docs" page of the band website http://www.memorialmsband.com/my-forms

 6.  MOST IMPORTANT - CHECK WITH YOUR STUDENT AND MAKE SURE THEY SIGNED UP FOR BAND NEXT YEAR!   Every student we have in band is IMPORTANT to us!  If your student is not sure about band next year, please communicate any concerns you have.  We want to make band work for everyone!

 Please bookmark our website  and check in often - http://www.memorialmsband.com - we will be posting announcements over the summer!  Thank you so very much for a great year in band at Memorial!
