Students wishing to audition for the MS Lion's All-State Band need to fill out an application and send in their audition fee. HERE is the link to the All-State site.  We will print and copy music for students so they need to make sure to let us know that they are interested.

Ms. Odom will be in the cafeteria Tuesday-Friday morning this week, during breakfast, to collect the $35 Activity Fee. Checks should be made payable to QHS

The Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion will not have a Saturday rehearsal this week. (see our calendar) We do need it but chances of rain are high and we need to be outside.  The colorguard is having rehearsal this Saturday from 9am-1pm.  

We will hold Saturday rehearsals on September 8 and 22.

Due to our Fall Break happening two days before State Evaluation we must use a portion of one of those days to rehearse. Students were given an opportunity to vote for their choice of rehearsal times based on several options.  The result is:  Friday, October 12, 12:00pm-4:00pm and we will be asking that the Band Boosters provide a meal. After the meal, we will load buses and travel to NE Jones HS for a game.




1 - First Semester Calendars: August   September   October   November   December

***The calendar can still be accessed here but I also wanted to provide printable versions***

***Note that I have scheduled three Saturday rehearsals in August and September.  These will ONLY be held in the event that we miss days due to weather or if students ARE NOT doing their work at home to come into rehearsal prepared. There will always be work to be done at home; playing, marching, spinning, breathing, etc.***

2 - We will be completing tests this year using the Flipgrid app as we did last Spring.  If a student does not have access to this, Wednesday after school will be their day to make up those assignments, as long as they follow the guidelines as directed on the calendar. Get the free Flipgrid app for:       APPLE       OR          ANDROID
