Only two weeks of school left!

Next Wednesday is both the 2017/18 sign up/information night and the Band Parents AGM at Clavet School.

The Band Parents Association is looking for upwards of 3 volunteers for next year. Please contact Mr. Martin if you are interested in helping the program grow and can offer any assistance to the program.  

  • 4:30-6:30pm – Meet the Teacher, Sign up and rental information
  • 6:15pm – Band Parent Association AGM

Both Mr. Martin, Mr. Ward and the Band Parents Association will be there to answer any questions about next year. Brett Graham from St.Johns music will also be in attendance to field any questions or set up rental contracts for instruments.

**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.

Happy Weekend!
