May 2018

Parents,

            I cannot believe it is only a month until school is out for the “summer”. We need to get instruments checked out and fees paid before the end of the year. Please check the calendar for uniform fitting dates. Students needing shoes will need to pay for those and be sized for those that evening. Our spring concerts will be next Monday (Middle Schools) and Tuesday (High School) at 7:00 pm. I plan to announce the bands/leadership positions next week once I have finished listening to all the upcoming 9 th grade band students. We are going to add a fourth band next year and they will be listed as the following: (wind ensemble, symphonic band I, symphonic band II, and concert band). We are going to be able to meet the needs of our students by dividing the classes like this.

 Please continue to encourage your children to practice (learn all 12 major scales from memory; listen to recordings of great players on their instrument). I will be creating a google classroom to upload recordings/ sheet music for next year’s show. I will start sending out remind101’s and posting on facebook again starting next week. Looking forward to rapping the year up and setting up our summer.

Take care!














As we are approaching the end of another school year, it brings the end of the high school career for 63 of our Big Blue members. We are so grateful for the time that we have had to get to know each of you and are so excited to see what great things you all accomplish in the future!!

Band Fees
CTCT-20180109_092743_0
Thank you to everyone who has gotten their band fees current. Unfortunately, we still have several student accounts with overdue balances which need to be taken care of.

This band program survives primarily through the support of our parents and without that, we would not be able to provide the quality program that we have all grown accustomed to. So, please help us help your children by paying your band fees and getting these accounts up to date.
