Bandroom News: Penultimate division rehearsal this week!

Happy (Early) Music Monday!

The World’s largest annual celebration of music is Monday May 1st. Our East Junior Showband students under the direction of Ms. Worman will be performing at a Prairie Spirit School Division Music Monday concert in Warman. The concert will feature staff and students from across the division and starts at 7:30pm at Warman Middle School, entry by donation.

Penultimate Division Band Rehearsal this coming Wednesday

We are already left with just TWO division rehearsals until the final concert. Attendance at these curricular rehearsals are VITAL to prepare for our final Spring concert. PLEASE ensure that students attend this Wednesday May 3rd.

University of Saskatchewan Student Teachers

We would like to welcome two University of Saskatchewan Education students to the division in one and three week placements. Benjamin Black and Shannon Butler will be accompanying Mr. Martin over the next few days and weeks. Please stop to say hi if you see them around!

Used Instruments to donate or sell

If anyone has any band instruments at home that are unused, or know of someone that does, the Beginner Band+ program is looking for instruments to build capacity in each of our 7 communities for grades 5 and 6. Please contact Mr. Martin (will.martin@spiritsd.ca) if you would like to donate or sell any instruments.
