Swingin’ with Spaghetti is on Saturday, February 4th. The fun begins at 6:00!
We need volunteers to pull off our biggest fundraiser of the year!! There are volunteer opportunities before and after the event. There are also several spots to be filled for kitchen help. These spots still allow for plenty of time to enjoy the entertainment, friends, and family!
There are positions available for set up (which is decorating the commons, and is a lot of fun!), clean up (the more, the merrier. It went VERY fast last year!), and kitchen help for both shifts (don’t be intimidated…no actual cooking is required. Someone will point you to where you are needed. Easy!!)
Please look at the volunteer spot link. Thank you!!! Volunteer Spot: http://signup.com/go/FJ3JD1. Check it out!!!! 🙂
All SHS band and color guard students received dinner tickets and raffle tickets last week. Tickets are also available through Mr Dyer and Mr Angeloni at the middle schools. Checks can be made out to Sherwood Band Boosters.
REMINDER! SHS students need to turn in their ticket envelopes on Monday, January 30. Make sure that all ticket money, raffle stubs, and any extra tickets are in the envelope.
Looking forward to seeing you all at Swingin’ with Spaghetti!

Practice Your Music!
Practice – Lost class & rehearsal time does not move our performances back any further. Students are still expected to:
- Give a musical & well prepared Solo & Ensemble Recital performance on Thursday March 2nd.
- Practice Basketball Band Music
- Be prepared on Festival (or All NW) pieces.
Class Adjustments – We are going to have less rehearsal time on all of this music now that we’ve lost over a week of school. Please be practicing your music at home, on your own time, using your own initiative.
Practice Your Music!
Solo & Ensemble Recital – On Thursday, March 2nd we will put on a recital night as a band program. We will have approx. 5-6 rooms running with performances happening simultaneously throughout the course of the evening. Envision it like a musical art gallery, where one can come and go and observe the art that they want to see/hear.
At this point in our process, all students should have music selected and should be practicing it 5 times per week.
Anyone who has gone through this process will testify that you grow exponentially as a musician when you prepare and perform a solo or ensemble piece of music. It is a priceless experience for our young musicians who are looking for a challenge and to push themselves beyond the average day of music class.
