Middle School Band Concert  

Tuesday, May 17th at 7:00 pm.

What to Wear: Students should try to look professional while performing a concert. Examples of what students should wear: a shirt with a collar (polo, button-down), dress pants, khakis, dark-colored jeans (as long as they don't have holes), a dress that is an appropriate length, dress shoes, or nice/clean tennis shoes. Examples of what not to wear: t-shirts, shorts, sandals, jeans that have holes.

 

What to Bring: Students need their instrument, band book, and concert music.

 

Behavior: While being at the high school, students should be either in the band room or the auditorium. Please, no running around or talking, creating distractions during the concert. This was a bit of a problem during our last concert.

 

Attendance: Students are expected to be at the performance. We have been working hard for this event, and I hope they can show off their work! If an emergency situation comes up and they are not able to make it, please send me an email.

7th Grade Physicals are to be done May 1st or later to qualify 

For the next school year.  This is also true for 7th & 8th Grade Sports.

Technology announcements:

All  MS Students - We will not be checking in Chromebooks over the summer.  If you have any equipment issues with your Chromebook, please stop by the Middle School Library  as soon as possible to get those repairs done prior to the end of the school year. (Any screen cracks, screen detachments, plastic cracks/breaks, etc… need to be fixed ASAP.) This will also make sure you have a usable Chromebook for over the summer. (Remember to take good care of your Chromebook, you will be able to purchase these at a discounted price when you graduate.) If you are planning on leaving the district, please check in your Chromebook prior to leaving.

Since this is a school-issued device, remember that all internet and other device usages will continue to be monitored over the summer and addressed with school administration and parents.

We encourage you to take out the device protection plan each year! This will save you money with any damages as well as reduce the price of your device should you decide to purchase it. It's well worth the cost! 

8th grade students (Or any student leaving the district.) - You will be checking in your Chromebook before the end of the school year on Wednesday, May 18th. We will start this process of turning in Chromebooks on Monday, May 16th. You will need to have your Chromebook (With stylus) and charger in proper working order and ready for check in on that day.  If you have any damages to the Chromebook or charger (Or missing your Stylus.)  make sure you get these repaired ASAP by visiting the MS Media Center.  Any damages that are not fixed by the 16th will be assessed on the 18th along with a late damage fee of $10.  Avoid the extra fee by getting your device repaired ASAP! 

If you have any fines going into your freshman year from not paying for a damaged Middle School Unit, you will not receive a High School Chromebook until it is resolved.

You will be receiving a new device this fall as you start your freshman year.  At the end of your senior year, you will be able to purchase the device at a large discount, so make sure you take good care of your Chromebook! We encourage all students to take out the protection plan coverage each year on your Chromebook.  All 8th grade students will not have a school issued device over the summer. (We will be offering some Chromebooks for sale in the upcoming weeks, so if you want one over the summer, that may be an option for you. Watch the daily bulletin for announcements concerning Chromebook sales.)  


Lost or damaged badges cost $5.00 / Lanyards - $1 / Plastic Sleeve - $1 - Complete Set - $7
