**Program news** -> 2017-18 Music Programs (Document of next years programs)
We are excited that all schools will be studying music in grade 5 and 6 next year. This will also change the division band format slightly. Starting from the fall the Intermedite and Senior Band will combine to create the East Winds.
All students grades 7-12 will only have one class per cycle in their home schools in addition to the bi-weekly rehearsals in Allan School. This will result in pull out time being reduced on average to just less than 2 pull out classes a week.
All division band students will also get the chance to choose from 4 other ensembles in addition to the East Winds and for students in grades 10-12 this will mean the option of gaining extra music credits of their choice.
Please read the above (attached) document explaining the changes.
We hope to see you on the 21st or sooner.
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
The final Division Band rehearsal for the 2016/17 school year is already. It is very important that all intermediate/senior students attend to hand in music and also to talk about next years division rehearsal format and options.
We will be taking students to the Park and Allan Bowl to wrap up. Any student that wants to go bowling needs to bring $3 and contact Mr. Martin ASAP to confirm that they want to bowl.
