Our Band is a team and all members of the team are important! Thank you for planning in advance to schedule other activities and appointments around the band calendar so that ALL MEMBERS of the team can be present to work together at every rehearsal. In certain circumstances, absences may be excused with permission from me IN ADVANCE (as soon as you are aware of the potential conflict) and require a note, email, or phone message from a parent or guardian. The students owe it to each other – to the team – to be present and on time. The success of our band will be a tremendous reward!
