WELCOME TO EMS ELEMENTARY BAND 2018-19   (updtd 9/19/18)

Welcome to Elementary BEGINNING and CADET (2nd year) Band!
(There’s still time to sign up for Elementary Band, so if you have a friend, bring them along. It’s more fun with friends!)

Hopefully your student is as excited about joining us as we are teaching! (after 20+ years, I still get excited at the first note we play together!). They got to hear our visiting Middle School students play their instruments for them.

Class time is 7:45 AM- 8:25 AM.
Busses will depart for respective Elementary Schools at 8:30 AM

2018-19 Elementary bands meet at Evergreen Middle School

The first few days for Beginners (Sept 24, 26, 27th) we will barely get in, get seated, take roll, do some rhythmic activities, and show them how to get on the buses      :-)
     -So, they won’t really need their supplies, so if you’re waiting on an instrument or a book, they’ll be fine.
     -We’ll get going on that the next week’s classes.

Cadet Band will start playing right away. (T/F)

-They will get on school buses for departure to their school at 8:30 AM
Dickinson will stay at EMS until 8:45; We’ll probably still keep on playing.  Then we’ll walk over.

Coming to EMS in the morning:
- Mr. Beise and Mr. Peterson are here 7:20 AM at the latest
-We have a new security system. The Doors will be Open at 7:30 for Elementary Band arrival
-BUS: Transportation is telling us that Elementary Band students CANNOT RIDE the Middle School buses. We ARE finding some drivers ARE letting 4/5th kiddos, but we can't tell you who, nor guarantee a spot. You'll have to do some checking on this.

*PLEASE CARPOOL as much as you can.

We look forward to meeting and working with you!
