Kemp Junior High Bands
Greetings Band Parents! We hope this letter finds you well.
We want to touch base with you on some Band news. Things are going really good here. The students are progressing well and we are ready to take some new steps.
On Friday October 25th, the 8th grade band will be joining up with the High School Band during the football game. They will play in the stands and on the field at halftime as one “Mass Band”. This is an exciting time for all of our younger players. It also gives them a taste of the High School band life and is fun for all. This is a performance and test grade for these young students and is thus mandatory.
We will have one combined rehearsal Friday morning during 1st period with the High School Band. All 8th graders will need to report to the junior high band hall when the first bell rings. We will be taking buses to the high school and will be back during 2nd period.
We will need to meet at the High School Band Hall at 5:30pm. After halftime is done, the Band Boosters are offering a meal during 3rd quarter for 5 dollars. We will take orders next week so please send 5 dollars with them as soon as possible. The students will then continue their performance for 4th quarter. When the game is over, you may pick up your child from the HS band hall. Please use the front of the building for drop off and pick up.
Band shirts will be in next week and most everyone has paid. They are 10 dollars if your child still needs to bring money. We will send out an order form for parents and families at a later date.
Once again, this is a great time for our young band students and a wonderful learning experience. Mr. Polk, Mrs. Norwood and I are looking forward to a fun evening with all the Band Members together. We highly encourage you to attend as well and support your child in the Pride of the Yellowjacket’s Marching Band.
