Instrumental Music Student Registration Form 2020

Welcome from the Director

We are back to a new year!
These are definitely trying times we are going through, but we will make it together! We will be back to making music, but it will look differently this year, since we can’t be with each other in person yet. In the meantime, dig around the site and check out some pictures from the past few years. I look forward to seeing everyone, virtually and eventually in person, and let’s make it a great year!

Marching Band Mini-Camp

Mini-Camp was finally approved this afternoon because of delays relating to repairs on our hallway. We will hold camp for the marching band from Mon 8/28Th 8/31 from 5-8pm. Attire will be solid back shorts, plain white t-shirt, and athletic shoes each day. I was able to get some plain black shorts for my son from Modell’s for $8, but I’m guessing you can probably find some even cheaper at Walmart or Forman Mills. Right now, we are only set up for musicians; I will advise if the flags and/or dancers need to report once i hear back from their coaches. Please share this information with new students who you may know are coming to Parkdale, and let me know if you have any questions.

SLC members need to be enrolled to our SLC group on Remind.

Thanks, and enjoy the rest of your vacations. (I’m sure I’m forgetting something.)
