Band This Week: Sept. 23-27, Uniform Distribution This Weekend

Hi All,

Some quick notes:

THANK YOU to my students that came to Band Camp with Cedar Hill! It was a pleasure having you on the trip. Your hard work, professionalism, leadership, and humour were amazing and so contributed to the success of the camp. 

Please support Cops for Cancer fundraisers – most of which are student lead – in our school community!

Thank you to everyone that came out to our Hawaii tour meeting! Hard copies of forms are available in the band room. I will update the travel portion of our website in the next couple of days. We appreciate your support! 

APPLE PIE INFORMATION COMING SOON! Thank you for your patience as I move this fundraiser to Reynolds. 

Have a great week! 

Mr. Davis

***Choir and Strings students: See Ms. Kerr’s update re: uniforms for her ensembles.***

Returning students & parents: PLEASE try on your uniform this week. If you have outgrown your sweater(s) or blazer, please attend a Uniform Distribution day and exchange that item for one that fits.  

New students & parents: Please make sure you attend one of the distribution days. RMPA volunteers will be on hand to help you with sizing, sales/rentals and with the paperwork that was sent home last week. 🙂

Grade 12s – please make sure your blazer fits properly. Come in to be re-sized if needed. Also, the uniform team has noticed damages to the lining of our the blazers (they will rip/tear if it does not fit properly).

Grade 11s – please return your green band sweaters and your junior/intermediate jazz band sweaters to the band room this week. Students who have not returned sweaters will not be issued Blue Band blazers or the Sr. Jazz Band uniform.

Grade 10s – We are in serious need of SMALL green band sweaters for our new grade 9s. Please exchange your sweaters if they are too small. 

White Dress Shirts and White Socks – these items need to be purchased by families (from Walmart, HBC, etc). Your dress shirt MUST be a man’s long sleeve, button-down dress shirt (must be able to hold a tie). Blouses, knit shirts, polo-shirts, t-shirts, are NOT acceptable. White socks MUST be long and completely white. Sport socks, ankle socks, athletic socks, “fun socks,” and socks with logos are NOT acceptable. 

*No student will be denied a uniform due to financial hardship. Please email me if you have a concern (confidentiality assured).

Thank you for maintaining the EXCELLENT appearance of our bands!
