8TH GRADE STUDENTS AND PARENTS

This is a copy of your group email.

Hello! If you are receiving this email, you are a WMS 8th grade band student and/or parent. I am Mrs. Brooks, the band director at WHS. As most of you know, I work with the 8th grade band at WMS as well.

I am emailing to share some information with you about an upcoming opportunity. It is getting to the time of year where we begin to discuss the marching band program, and how to get involved. I am currently working on our calendar and handbook for next year, and will have those out to you over the next few days.

As can be expected, many questions arise when your student is thinking of joining the marching band, and we have set up a meeting to help answer some of those questions. Next Tuesday, February 21 we will have a meeting at 6:30 in the WHS Band Room. This meeting will include information about an upcoming fundraiser, as well as introductory information about marching band for potential new students and parents. I will provide some basic information, as well as a question/answer opportunity.

We hope that you will be able to attend! If your student is interested in marching band, but you cannot attend the meeting, please let me know. Feel free to reply to this email with any questions- it goes directly to me. You can also email me any time at jill.brooks@ucps.k12.nc.us

Thank you for your time, and I hope to see you next week!
