Thank you for supporting our students, our Boosters, and music in the community!
January Quarter Note
The website’s layout has been updated to better aid students, families, and patrons navigate.
Students will still be able to use the website to submit their playing tests. The link to do this is under the “Resources” tab. Students that utilize the online form will notice that there are different forms depending on which class they are in. Make sure tests that are submitted online are submitted with the correct form.
Due to the lack of interest we will not start be starting the lessons program at this time. This is an opportunity that we definitely would like to provide our students here at De Soto. Private lessons offer students the opportunity to develop themselves as musicians and gain a deeper understanding of their instrument.
Please take part in the communications that are available to you and your student. The band website is a useful tool for us to dispense information to our students and our families, but it is not the only tool that we have at our disposal. You may find information on the band on Twitter by following @desotobands. We use this to dispense information on festival results, awards, and celebrations as well as travel information. For those of you that do not use social media, we also use the Remind text messaging service. This allows us to send out text messages to any number that registers. Information sent out through Remind is typically limited to concert, fundraising, and trip information.
SIX FLAGS (8th Grade Band)
Students are required to purchase their ticket for the performance and our performance shirt. All students must have a performance shirt. Shirts will be $10 and tickets for the park this day are $32. The school will be covering the cost of the festival part of the performance. Those students that are season ticket holders will need to notify Mr. Boyer so a ticket is not reserved for them. All money is due February 16th. Money can be turned in starting January 5th to Mr. Boyer.
I am looking into doing one more fundraiser this Spring. Money from this fundraiser will be used to pay for the Six Flags festival, travel, and to purchase equipment for JH Bands. It is my sincere hope that we can find a fundraising solution that does not involve brochures. Those types of fundraisers net the band at maximum 40% of the proceeds.
