Weekly Updates

Good afternoon MHS Bands families,

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our band moms! I hope you have a great day and have time to relax!

This has been an usual and unprecedented time for our families and students dealing with COVID-19. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time. We are doing everything we can to continue to provide music education for our band students and are making multiple plans in light of the uncertainty moving forward. We have started our process for marching band including the process for selecting leadership. Please make sure students are checking Schoology regularly as this is where the updates are posted.

Seniors: We handed out signs to those that contacted me last Wednesday. Please make sure to come pick up your sign at the school on May 12 or 13 between 12pm – 3pm if you have not received yours.

In conjunction with the textbook pickup days we will have band instrument return/pickup and band locker clean out. If you have a school instrument it must be returned for the summer, that is at the guidance of the district and will allow all instruments to be cleaned and fixed as necessary. Please make sure you get instruments back as well as pick up your personal instruments so the band room can be cleaned for summer.

I will be at the school from 12pm – 3pm on the following days for the following classes:

Seniors: May 12 and 13

Juniors: May 15 and 18

Sophomores: May 19 and 20

Freshmen: May 21 and 22

Please make sure that you check in at the front office before coming to the band room as we have procedures in place to do this safely.

Please contact me if you have any questions. I am here if you need anything and want to do everything I can to get us through this time. I look forward to the day that our students can be together making music again.

Stay safe and healthy! Have a great week everyone!

Our ensembles have traveled around the world and have been recipients of many awards and accolades. There are many opportunities for participation from beginning to advanced musicians, from dancers to color guard members. We are proud to represent Manatee High School in a positive way in many events throughout the year.
