Download the BAND App and Join
In our ongoing effort to streamline communication and processes, we are going to start using the BAND app to communicate.
Please use this link to sign up.
The end goal is to have as few places as possible to share information. Band will (hopefully) be the primary source, supplemented by remind and the website.
Only current members and parents/guardians will be approved to join the Band group.
Spring Clinics with Mr. Benzer
Many of you have already looked further ahead in the calendar, but I wanted to make sure and touch base about some important Saturday dates in the Spring.
We are fortunate to have one of the best band clinicians and teachers in the country, John Benzer, coming to work with our students several times this semester. Having worked with him for the last five years, I can tell you that the information he provides is invaluable in continuing the growth of the Creek Band program.
Each student will be required to attend a 2 hour (2 1/2 hours for Wind Symphony) clinic on a few Saturday's in the spring. Please go ahead and put these on your calendar so that no students are absent. All students are expected to attend on the following dates:
The schedule for each day will be:
If you have any conflicts with these dates and times, it is imperative that you let me know immediately. Again, these are required events (much like marching contests in the fall) for all students.
