posted May 14, 2013, 5:52 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.  Today is the last day for instruments.  All instruments must be out of the building by Thursday, May 16th  


2.  School Instruments -School instruments are now available for use over the summer.  Please complete this google form to use a school instrument this summer (there is no fee for summer instrument use).  

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1uGD--fpfmFjBUhZo7db7XodQ-dFDpvOf584PKCo_w9U/viewform.  Students will also receive a paper copy of this form.


3.  Middle School All-State Band - Please see the attached letter for information regarding the audition process for Middle School All-State Band.  Memorial had 5 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.


4.  Summer Band - I have attached a registration form for Sioux Falls Parks & Rec Youth Summer Band.  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 17 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 https://sites.google.com/site/memorialmiddleschoolband/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!


All forms attached to this email will also be available on the MMS Band Website.  Please bookmark our website  and check in often - http://sites.google.com/site/memorialmiddleschoolband - we will be posting announcements over the summer!  Thank you so very much for a great year in band at Memorial!
