Weekly Newsletter - December 3rd, 2022

We're almost to the end of the semester! How is that possible???

We've got a few concerts coming up this week (as Mr. Dubbs talks about below), so I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there and listen to all the hard work these students have been putting in.


If you were not able to pick up your poinsettias on Monday, we'll be distributing them at the concerts this week.


Luminaria build day is this coming Saturday, December 10. We'll begin at 9 AM - as Mr. Dubbs says below, please do your best to make it. The more students we have, the faster it will go - and you'll get lettering points for being there!

If you ordered luminarias, you can start to pick them up around 10:30 AM - please be there between 10:30-12:00, as we do not have another distribution time available.

Booster Christmas Party

We'll be having our annual booster Christmas party this Saturday, December 10 from 6-11PM. Our past president JP Bowdoin has graciously offered to host this event again, and we are so thankful for his hospitality and continued commitment to this program. So please, leave the kids at home, and come and enjoy some holiday cheer with your board and other boosters. Please RSVP as soon as possibly using this Evite link so we can plan for numbers.

Student Accounts

Being the holiday season, it's easy to forget your band fees :) Please do your best to stay on top of your student accounts for December. Statements should go out this weekend.

Go Eagles!


And now a word from Mr. Dubbs...

Parents and Students,

It is concert week! We are excited to share the selections that all of the groups have been working on. Please note all the details below.

Monday - Zero hour for Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band

Tuesday - Zero hour for Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band

Winter Band Concert at 6:30pm in the PAC. REPORT TIME IS 6:00pm. Students will wear their concert uniform that was issued to them. Students may wear holiday hats (Santa hats, etc) if they wish. They may also decorate their horns if they wish to do that. It is a tradition that everyone brings some cookies to share after the concert. To be safe, avoid bringing cookies with nuts in them. ALL STUDENTS will be required to put equipment away when the concert is over.

Wednesday - NO ZERO HOUR

Thursday - Zero hour for ALL BAND AND COLOR GUARD STUDENTS at 7:00am. We will have a special visit from Dr. Harmon, Director of Athletic Bands at UNM, speaking with our students.

Winter Jazz Concert at 6:30pm in the PAC. Report time is 6:00pm.

Friday - ONLY WINTER GUARD will be practicing at zero hour. No zero hour for band students. We will send out the zero hour schedule for the week of 12/12 soon.

Saturday - 9:00am to 10:30am - Luminaria Assembly (near the softball field). The more students we have helping, the faster it will go. Students who help will earn LETTERING POINTS for helping us this morning.

TUBA CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE - Interested low brass students should speak with Mr. Snowden about details of that event.

Thank you very much to Kathleen Tighe-Smith for her help with getting all of the jazz band shirts and ties ready for those students. Also, a huge thank you to her for helping put together our concert programs for this week!

We look forward to seeing you at our concerts. Have a great week!


Mr. Dubbs
