Any Meyer Music rentals will be available the first day of camp. To rent from Meyer Music you can apply online at www.meyer-music.com. If you are not renting or are renting through another music store, please make arrangements to get your instrument before camp. Students who use school-owned instruments (baritone, tuba, French horn) should bring their own mouthpieces, and we will sign out instruments to them at camp.
This camp is not required, but is highly encouraged!
Dear Band Parents,
A detailed schedule for the day of band festival was sent home with your child today (and also via email). Please ask them for it! For safety reasons, I will not be posting it here. If you did not get it, feel free to contact me and I will get one to you. Also, see the previous post for details.
Our Pre-Festival concert is two weeks from today! Due to an away 7th Grade Girl's Basketball game that is the same night as the concert, the timing will be slightly different than the calendar sent home at the beginning of the year.
Monday, February 26th
Report Time: 7:00 PM in the Sparta HS Band Room
Full Uniform: Black dress pants (no black jeans or leggings), black socks, white LONG-sleeved collared dress shirt (please, no short sleeves).
Click Here to sign up to hand out or collect MS Uniform Vests before and after the concert.

8th Grade students will need to arrange a ride home, as we will return after the end of the school day.
More specific information, including a schedule for the day of festival, will be forthcoming.
We are in need of parent chaperones to ride the bus with the students to and from Cedar Springs. If you are available, click here to sign up! I would like 2 parent chaperones for each grade--they will be leaving separately, as our times are so far apart this year.
We will also need a parent with a pickup truck and trailer hitch to pull our trailer home from festival on Friday (around 2:30 PM). If you are available to do this, please contact myself or Mr. Walsh, or sign up on the link above.
