  • Thank you, students and parents, for an incredible first week back!
  • The next Spring Trip installment is due on Wednesday January 15th. All charms accounts should be updated by tomorrow morning with the trip fees paid. If you see any discrepancies, please notify Mr. Moreno.
  • There were some typos on the Wind Ensemble January calendar. The clarinet sectional is on Tuesday in place of the 2nd spot marked “LOWS”. The low voices are slated for Mondays at 5:30, not 5:15, the time reflected on the calendar. Also, the both weeks of the Tuesday/Thursday full wws/brass. Brass are on Tuesdays both weeks and Ww’s are on Thursday both weeks as well.

  • Solo and Ensemble season is upon us! In addition to preparing for UIL, we need our students diligently preparing for Solo and Ensemble (UIL-Feb. 8th, CFHS-Feb. 22nd) Students should be able to play top to bottom on their solos by now, if not, they must catch up as they are behind.
