Weekly Wrap Up

IMG_2665 IMG_2678 IMG_2687 IMG_2700 IMG_2703 IMG_2705

It was a great week for the Blue Darter Band! Playoff football, first Jazz Ensemble gig, band pictures…. There was much to be excited about this week! Our football team is now heading to West Orange (originally we thought it would be at home….) and we are heading over on Friday to continue cheering them on towards victory!

THANK YOU to the Apopka Rotary for giving our Jazz Ensemble an opportunity to perform and another HUGE THANK YOU for the opportunity to earn funds via our parking fundraiser. THANK YOU to each student and parent that came together to fulfill this mission! And another HUGE THANK YOU to all of our members who came to help re-organize the Band Library as well as helped with our Campus Beautification project on Saturday morning.

Fall Concert 

Join us on Thursday evening for an opportunity to say THANK YOU to our Veterans who have made the sacrifice to serve our Great Nation. We ask that you reach out to any Veterans who can join us to make plans to be in attendance as our Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Symphony, and Jazz Ensemble come together to pay tribute to these American heroes.

The concert downbeat is at 7:00 PM in our Auditorium.

Band Picture Previews will occur PRIOR to our concert beginning at 5:30 PM and will break for the concert. They will resume at the conclusion of the concert for half an hour. PLEASE NOTE: A PARENT MUST BE IN ATTENDANCE TO VIEW THE PHOTOGRAPHS AND TO ORDER. PLEASE MAKE PLANS TO ARRIVE DURING THE LISTED TIMES TO VIEW THE PHOTOGRAPHS.

Calendar Fundraiser

The Rotary Calendar Fundraiser money is DUE on Wednesday, November 18th. Please place all funds into an envelope and put in Mr. L’s box. All unsold calendars that are unsold and in good condition can be turned in and removed from the student’s obligation.
