Balaxy Field Trip
This is an optional trip, but all band students are invited to go to Balaxy Fun Park (Previously Glow Zone) on October 31.
We need 6 chaperones to ride buses. Please let me know if you can chaperone and are cleared in Voly. https://lewisvilleisd.voly.org/

Students are required practice at least 5 times a week at home or at school and they have a complete list of objectives to go.
The cost will be $10 for 4 hours. The marketed price is usually $25 for only 2 hours.
Money is due by Monday, October 28 and can be sent in now.
They will wear jeans and their band shirts.
Field Trip Forms will go home soon.

Students that failed a class for the 1st 9 weeks are ineligible to go. Students that are failing classes on October 31 may be asked to stay behind as well.

Practice Schedule

Directors are here every day at 7:15am and they can practice from that time until 8:45am. I’m here after school every day from 4:10-5:10pm. If they practice at home they can ask for credit when they bring their instrument back in the morning. We ask that they try recording assignments using the Charms Blue App to help verify that they practiced and to keep them focused on our objectives.

 

The Charms Blue app school is delaymsband and the password is their ID number.
