Spiritwear Orders! Corrected Band Calendar!!

With less than two weeks until the start of school, the Chemic Marching Band has kicked it up several notches with the start of band camp! A lot of information has been passed along to parents over the past few weeks. If parents have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask any of the wonderful music reps. They put in countless volunteer hours and can generally answer your questions. If they don’t know, they’ll ask the director or one of the assistants. The last thing we want is to overwhelm you with information!  That said… here’s some more information :)

For band:  The master calendar has been updated. You can find it here > 2015 Band Calendar Corrected

For band:  The spirit wear order form is here > 2015 Band Spirtwear Order Form

For all parents of music students:  The spirit wear order form is here > 2015 Music Parent Spiritwear Order Form

Please note the deadlines for ordering. Band parents need to get their orders in my September 2!!! Please hurry!  The Music Parents deadline is September 16th. All checks must be payable to MHS Music Parents.

Fifth Grade Music Update – Your Efforts Make A Difference

We received news that Adams Elementary has returned a large amount of the requested minutes for 5th grade band to the school day schedule. This is a BIG improvement. Two other elementary schools are also returning music to the school day
Midland Public Schools is moving in a positive direction as we all work to strengthen the 5th grade instrumental and vocal music program.
Your continued interest in the music program is much appreciated. There is still work to do but we’re glad to see these improvements!
