The first Booster meeting of the year is Wednesday night (9/17) in the band room, (immediately following the DHS open house). This one will be short and sweet, but important to set the tone for this year. Looking forward to seeing many students and parents!
BAND CAMP is coming up.
This year’s camp is August 18-21 from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Make plans now for Music, Marching, and FUN! Open to all current and future Decatur Band students (Incoming freshmen encouraged, middle school students welcome). Reconnect with returning band members and welcome this year’s new students. Get a jump start on this year’s pep music. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
We’re starting to get questions about the upcoming big trip to Disneyland, so we’ve added a new page to the site. The “Disney 2014” page has the trip itinerary and a trip guide to help students and parents be a little more informed of what to expect when we head down. Check it out.
Congratulations are in order for Decatur Bands. The Decatur Concert Band received a rating of ‘Excellent’, and the Decatur Wind Ensemble received a rating of ‘Superior’ at this year’s Large Ensemble event last Saturday. This is a full grade improvement over last year’s performance for both bands, and makes Decatur one of the top performing schools at this year’s event. Excellent work by all the students, and by our new director, Mr. Chang.
Due to budget limitations, we are unable to obtain a bus to transport the Jazz Band to the Graham Kapowsin Jazz Festival next Saturday (March 22). We are looking for a few cars and drivers to help get the Jazz Band students and their instruments down to Graham Kapowsin High School so they can participate in this event. We need to leave Decatur at around 9:00 AM and expect to return to Decatur by approximately 3:30-4:00 or so. If you are willing to help out, please contact Mr. Chang at email@example.com.
