The end of the school year is quickly approaching and we have several dates to review. Please read carefully and contact us if you have any questions.
On May 5th at 6pm in the DCHS Band room, we will be having our new marcher meeting. Any students planning to join the marching band are asked to attend so we can go over expectations and answer any questions parents and students may have. You will also receive a paper copy of the marching calendar. The calendar for next year is already available on dcband.org.
We will be traveling to the elementary schools during the school day to perform for the 5th grade students. This is a wonderful opportunity for our middle school students to be able to show off their accomplishments to former teachers and to let rising middle school students see what a band looks like, sounds like, and what instruments they may be interested in playing. We will travel to Davis on May 9th and to Dade on May 10th. This will be during school and students will need to wear their band shirts(new ones ordered if they need one) and jeans.
The Dollywood trip is on May 13. We will leave promptly at 8:00 a.m. from DMS. If you are driving, please meet us at the park at the group entrance at approximately 11:30. Students should wear their band shirt and school dress code shorts/pants. We highly recommend sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and a change of clothes if they plan to ride a water ride. They are responsible for their own belongings and should change at the park before leaving, so all items need to be with them in the park. They can rent a locker to store items in if they do not wish to carry a bag all day. Electronics are allowed on this trip and all chaperones are required to join the trip Remind in case of an emergency. Electronics are brought at a students own risk and we are not responsible for them. Everyone purchasing a ticket will receive one meal ticket. We will not be stopping for supper, but will stop at a large convenience store 30 minutes after leaving to get snacks on the way home. We recommend each person have at least $15 to purchase supper in the park or snacks at the store. All drinks must be screw top and no energy drinks allowed by anyone on the buses. We aim to return to DMS lower lot by approximately 11 p.m. but will update on Remind and will have students call home 30 minutes out. The Remind code is @dmsdolly22. Everyone attending should join.
This year’s DMS band banquet will be held on Tuesday, May 17th at 6:00 p.m. in the DCHS Cafeteria. Our band banquet consists of student awards, celebrating student achievements, and most importantly, FUN! This event is not a required event for students to attend, but we try to make it a great time and would love to see everyone there!
Shew! That’s a lot, but it’s going to be so fun! Please let us know if you have any questions. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or call DMS 706-657-6491 or DCHS 706-657-7517. See you soon!
