Have a Great Spring Break!

Band Students & Parents – Please enjoy a well deserved spring break. Its been a wild winter trimester, and one that ended with several solid performances. I’m very proud of our Sherwood Band Students. Enjoy your break, relax, and do something nice for someone!

To practice over the break or not to practice over the break… I think about this in two ways: 1) If you practice all of the time, sometimes it is a good idea to walk away from your instrument for a little bit. That way when you come back you are fresh. Or 2) If you don’t practice regularly (or ever), its never too late to start and spring break is a great opportunity. I suppose there is an options 3) If you practice your horn and love it and don’t want to stop, please don’t stop.

Mr. Stai is here (Friday, March 24th) until 3:30pm if you want to come grab your horn… if you forgot it.

Playing Proficiency #8 is due on Monday, April 3rd.

Remember to eat at the Sherwood Spaghetti Factory on Monday, March 27th to support our district bands! Spaghetti Factory Flier – BAND
