What’s all the buzz about?

Hi Elementary Band Families! Next week, on Wednesday, October 16, we will start up Buddy Band again.

That means that your elementary band student is invited to come join the middle school's after-school band class from 1:45-2:30 on Wednesdays. Each elementary band student will be paired up with a middle-school band student mentor who plays the same instrument and will help them out and play along with them.

It has been quite popular and a good community builder in the past, and I encourage you to sign the permission slip (link below) and send your band students. They'll have fun and get lots of support. There are some extra hard copies of the permission slip in the office, and your student can also get one from me. 

Elementary students are invited to come every Wednesday that they can! We're looking forward to having a big group this year! See you soon, Jane Magid,  Mira Vista Band Director

Drum roll please! Here are this year's Readathon results:190 students participatedTotal minutes read: 106,046 - 29 students read more than 1,000 minutes! Total money raised: almost $10,500It has been a huge success and has far surpassed our wildest hopes & dreams!!!
