All three band class finished going over class expectations and need to bring their instruments to school on Monday. As part of class, students watched a video featuring Mr. Bley’s brother, Carlos. “Cool” Carlos reminded students that following the rules is cool. Locker assignments will be posted by grade and last name so that students can store their instruments in the band room before school starts. It would be a good idea for students to practice their instruments over the weekend to make sure they are still in working order. Band Contracts are also due on Monday.
8th grade band students got a taste of some of the music from their “Blues Brothers” show. They will be preparing a pregame show for the October 9 football game at Salina Central Stadium. One of the songs will be part of Aretha Franklin’s hit, Think. View a funny hippo version of the song with the link below.
