Care Packages for Phase 2 (Volunteers Needed!)

Posted by Dean Surface on November 3, 2019 in TSMS with No Comments


Good afternoon TSMS Band families,

This year we would like to continue our tradition of making "care packages" for our students who advance to Phase 2 this Saturday, Nov. 9. These packages include coloring books, crayons, bananas, water bottles, and other goodies to help students ease the nerves during and after the audition. We are in need of some parent volunteers to help gather materials and assemble these bags.

Stacey Straub has graciously volunteered to head up this process. She has created a volunteer Sign-Up Genius, located HERE. Details can be found at this link as well.

Let me know if there are any questions.

Thanks,
Aaron Trewitt

W.E. Week 13

Posted by Dean Surface on November 3, 2019 in TSMS with No Comments


Hello W.E. Families,

This week is Region Contest! Last week we sent home papers with details you can find those HERE.

Sectionals are normal this week with the exception of Tubas after school on Thursday are canceled. If your child is not auditioning on Thursday we could really use their help! We will be asking them in class this week if they can assist with setup on Thursday after school. It should take us about and hour or so to complete the setup in preparation for the Region Phase 1 contest.

The class does not currently have online pass offs for the nine weeks. We will start them once region is complete!

thank you
Dean Surface

TSMS Band Week 10

Posted by Dean Surface on October 14, 2019 in TSMS with No Comments


Hell W.E. families,

Sectionals will all meet at normal times this week. Clarinets and Saxes will make up their Monday morning sectional in class this week.

The KISD All-District band auditions are this Saturday, October 19. Please make sure you have reviewed your child’s audition group and time, which can be found HERE, as well as information about the audition itself, found HERE. This is a required audition for our class. All students have been working hard preparing for this date! If there are any questions, please let me know.

This is the first week of the new 9 Weeks. There is no Smart Music assignment this week to allow for students to focus solely on Saturday’s audition.

On Wednesday afternoon, band students will be participating in the Pink Out pep rally. Students will need their flip folders that they used at the Marching Expo, as we will not be setting up music stands for this event.

Thank you,
Dean Surface
