Band This Week: Oct. 15-19

Hi All! 

Thanks for your hard work last week. Please keep practising! We have a number of gigs coming up starting in the end of October and running all the way through to the end of December. Try to make practicing part of your homework routine – make time for it in your schedule. It’s important!

Thank you to all the parents that came out to our RMPA meeting on Thursday evening! It was great to see so many people out. Thank you for supporting our music program! It was awesome to connect with so many parents for Parent Teacher Interviews as well! If you were unable to book an interview, please send me an email and I will get back to you by phone this week. 🙂

Thanks for all that you do at Reynolds! Good luck to all of our musicians travelling to perform with BCMEA honour ensembles this week! 

Here’s what’s on the go this (short) week… 

See you tomorrow! 

Mr. Davis
