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
