Coupon books

A big thank you to Kelly Albert for all your work with the bagging groceries events and the new “coupon book” fundraiser. Your efforts to support band members with fund raising ideas for the upcoming trip are so appreciated by myself and the rest of the KISH Band family. Thank you for helping students reach their fundraising goals.

Coupon books are in and an announcement at the end of day was made for students to pick them up in the music room.

Deadline is May 1, 2019

  1. A new fundraiser for band students – “Coupon Books” fundraising forms will be given out tomorrow morning, Friday, March 29.  
  2. FundraiserGrocery bagging event at Mike’s Independent on Saturday, April 13.  Sign up on the band webpage
  3. Band Trip Meeting – General meeting for band parents and students going on the trip Wednesday, April 10 at 6:30 pm in the Music room.
  4.  Rehearsals are very important as we only have a few weeks before the trip.  Everyone is to attend early morning and/or after school rehearsals.  There are some band students who do not attend rehearsal on a regular basis.  This makes it difficult for those who do attend regularly. If the band is to play well and feel good about their performance regular attendance is necessary by everyone.
  5.  Practise at home – students need to take their instruments home to practise, especially on weekends.  Going over what we work on in rehearsal during at home practice, will foster growth in performers skills and confidence in attaining the level expected to perform these festival pieces. Unfortunately, there are some students who are not practising music at home.  It has become obvious during rehearsal time of the lack of at home practise, as we have to go over the same things and issues. Attention to this detail is necessary for successful performance. Those who have taken their instrument home to practise and review, have come to morning and after school rehearsal on a consistent basis, have improved greatly.  The confidence and skills are showing and being demonstrated.
  6.  The music room is open during lunch and is available for students to rehearse their music or get help with their musical performance.
  7.   Information to parents and students – these messages in the newsletter can be found in the morning announcement sheet that goes to every class each day, found in the office, and is on the KISH website.  Also, these messages are published on the KISH Band blog, mentioned in band rehearsals, and Mr Mulligan’s weekly announcements that go out to all parents.
