We are having a little trouble getting Remind101 to post correctly! I am working on the issue which is a "bug" in their software. Hopefully running soon. Thanks for patience!
I recently discovered the new online service called "Remind 101." You can sign up to receive text messages from Mrs. Manion about the Band! Basically this service works a lot like "PayPal." User and Sender info is hidden. Just enter the class phone number (609) 975-9926 and text this message "@rwk" to that number. That's it! You will be prompted about how to use the service to receive periodic text messages from ME about the Band. That's easy!
Our first band meeting was this afternoon! What a great and enthusiatic bunch of musicians! We start playing tomorrow- Wed., Sept 11th! Beginners will also be signing up and when ready will start band lessons. All the info is going home in handouts today- including a permission slip. Check the BAND HANDOUTS page!
We have at least two students who are participating in the AHS Marching Band this fall! Congratulations to GV sax and JV pit for their hard work!
Do you know what it takes to be an AHS Marching Green Wave member?? It takes commitment! They have been working all summer on their music and attended rigorous rehearsals during summer "band camp" at Audubon! Here is the AHS Marching Band Site.
It's looking like the rest of our band members will be able to attend the AHS Band Day- to view the field show and to participate playing a song in the stands with the other kids from Audubon Schools. Pencil in November 9th for that date!
I can't wait to see my students and start the new year! This will be a year of change- new ways of scheduling, new friends, some new teachers and luckily some old ones, too! :)
I will be teaching Technology during Cycles 1 & 2 this year and switch to General Music for Cycles 3 & 4. Our school will be on an "A/B" schedule- which is easy to do. Don't sweat it! We will have "purple and gold" days that alternate. So for Tech and Music I see you every other day for one cycle. (1/4 of a year.)
Band kids will be signing up! Permission slips are needed. Don't worry there will be plenty of announcements. Your lessons will be scheduled out of recess and band rehearsals will be at the end of the day. We have very limited time so you will be working hard, but we can do it! :) My overall schedule is HERE. See everyone very soon! START PRACTICING!
