Band Notes 10/16 to 10/22

What an incredible day yesterday! Although our marching band didn't have the competitive day they were hoping for, our MHS Band community was awesome in so many ways! I can't say thank you enough to everyone that was involved throughout Saturday's competition; from the marching band students and chaperones to everyone that volunteered with concessions, parking, ticketing, setting up, judge-running (oh man those steps!), and more.

I'm most proud and honored by all of the wonderful compliments I received from the NWAPA administrator onsite, the visiting band directors and staffs, and the spectators about our incredible, friendly parent and student volunteers. THANK YOU so much for helping create a very special special to work and for students to belong!

Special thanks to Mark Rodewald for his countless hours taking the lead on this one! Have I mentioned he doesn't have a student in the program anymore?? That's how much he believes in the activity and band community!

Fundraiser coming up next ... the Mead Bandwagon Craft Fair! November 11 & 12. Students will sign up in the next couple of weeks to work a shift.


6 week grades are in the books! Here's a repeat of last week's info regarding what went into this first 6 week term together. PLEASE remember that these are only a checkpoint. None of these are final. Many more points to be earned before things are "permanent" on a transcript at the end of January which is the end of the 1st semester. And yes, you can still turn in those missing assignments.
