7-12 Instrumental Yearbook

New for the 2020-21 school year…

Deb Parker is putting together a yearbook of the students from when they started in 7th grade until now. It will be 104 pages and color with a hardback cover. It will be reasonably priced (think ~$35 but we will let you know as soon as we firm up the budget) and we will offer senior pages to our senior families for a very reasonable cost (think ~$10-$15 a page).

It will include pictures from Disneyland, Ireland, Retreats, Concerts, Competitions, Parades, Football Games, 7/8 Night and more.

Please start gathering your digital images from the Fall of 2015 to now for uploading to Google Drive. A link with folders will be coming your way and probably some nagging emails from Deb.

We are looking for pictures of kids in groups of two or more, preferably with all faces visible!

If you are interested in helping Deb, email her and put, “Yearbook” in the Subject. Just because this past year has been bad, it doesn’t mean our memories have to be. Let’s celebrate all the good we have experienced over the years with this fabulous yearbook. More info to come…

Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

It’s been wonderful to get back to class and see the students again! We are working on musical techniques that will help everyone improve on their instruments. We continue to explore interesting aspects of musical history and performance. Thank you for all that you do as parents to support your children and their love of music!

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

I’m looking forward to a great week of music making and musicianship building. I think in our time apart, looking at our foundations in music is extremely important to our growth as individuals and as a program. Keep up the great work! Practice! Practice! Practice! Have a great week!

Boosters Raffle

DEADLINE IS THIS SATURDAY 1/17!

The 7-12 Instrumental Music Department, including Band, Orchestra, and Color Guard is participating again in the Spartan Booster’s Raffle this year!

Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

We are so ready for 2021! New year, new beginnings, and hope.

We will continue on with learning about and playing music. There are many new projects in the works, many that are student generated, and it will be fun to see them come to life.

Happy New Year to all!
