We have three big events coming up, so we wanted to make sure everyone has all the info necessary.
Six Flags Information
The Piner Band Six Flags trip is this coming weekend, Saturday, May 10th. Students who are coming should have already turned in their money and permission slip to the safe in the Piner Band Hall.
The itinerary, as well other information, can be found here. The important times for parents are as follows:
8am – Meet at Piner Band Hall
8:30am – Leave for Six Flags
6:30pm – Arrive at Piner Band Hall.
Parents need to be at Piner to pick up their students as soon as possible after we return.
All 7th and 8th graders should have their audition music for the 2014-2015 school year. Auditions for Piner Middle School are scheduled for the week of May 19th. Auditions for Sherman High School are scheduled for the week of May 12th.
The audition information sheet for Piner Middle School can be found here.
7th graders will have help sessions available on Wednesdays from 3:15-4:15. 8th graders have help sessions available in the mornings, according to the Sym 1 sectional schedule found here.
Students are encouraged to ask for help from directors for the upcoming auditions.
Spring Concert Information
Our Spring Concert is the evening of Thursday, May 15th. The concert will begin at 7pm and include all of the band ensembles at Piner Middle School, beginning with Concert/Beginner Band. The concert will be at the Sherman High School Auditorium.
Concert dress for this concert is different – as this is our Spring Costume Concert, students can wear either their concert dress or a school appropriate costume. Students can ask the directors in advance about the appropriateness of any costume choices.
Due to the fact that our Concert Band meets over three different periods, we need to have two after school rehearsals with that group the week of the concert. All rehearsals (including the one the day of the concert) will be at Piner Middle School. Members of concert band should plan to be at the following rehearsals:
- Monday, May 12th – 3:15pm to 4:15pm
- Thursday, May 15th (day of the concert)- 3:15pm to 4:15pm
As always, let us know if you have any questions about the upcoming activities.
