Good afternoon band! I hope that you have had a wonderful, fulfilling, and relaxing Thanksgiving Break! I know I am very, very excited to get back to school and to see all of you again!

All band members are required to march in this Parade. Please see Mr. Wiley if you have an excusable reason to miss the parade. This will count as a performance grade.
-Solo and Ensemble ideas should be turned into Mr. Wiley by Monday, November 28th. Please write down any solos or ensembles you have been planning on participating in and turn them in so I can assure that they are on the Solo and Ensemble list.
-Thank you to all of those who turned in their scale test! If you have not submitted your first scale pass off, you can do so by Wednesday, November 30th for partial credit. Anything later than that will go into the grade book as a Zero.

-The Gift Wrap Booth sign up link is posted on our Facebook Group "PSLHS Band, The Pride of PSL" and below. Every student must work AT LEAST two shifts in the Month of December.
