Hello Lumberjack Band Families!

I am beyond excited to see all of the students back in the building. There are a lot of cool events planned for this year in band. A couple reminders:

1. Lumberjack Day is the week on Wednesday September 1st. Here are the following times for 6th-8th Grade

6th Grade: 3:00pm-5:00pm

7th Grade: 4:00pm-6:00pm

8th Grade: 4:30pm-6:30pm

Any 6th grader who needs to be fitted (what instrument they are going to play) please come see me during Lumberjack Day.

Any 6th, 7th, or 8th grader who needs to check out a school instrument for the fall please come see me at Lumberjack Day so I can check out an instrument to you.

Any 7th or 8th grader who checked out an instrument over the summer, please come see me with the checked out instrument so we can check it out to you for the school year.

Any students who wants to stop by and say hello, come on down!


2. Here are the following books students will need for this year:


6th Grade: Tradition of Excellence Book 1


7th Grade: Tradition of Excellence Book 2

We are going to review and finish book 1 so if you want to wait until later to purchase them then that is fine.


8th Grade: Tradition of Excellence Book 2


3. We will kickoff our first fundraiser of the year on Tuesday September 14th, 2021. I will send home information via students and a later follow up email


4. This year we will be using an app called Band App for communications in additions to email and the facebook page. This free to download on android and apple phones. Use this link to join our group.

Have a wonderful last week of summer!

Go Lumberjacks!
