Welcome Father Marquette Catholic Academy students and families!
We have selected our Middle School concert dates for the 2018-2019 school year-be sure to mark your calendars. These are required performances for all middle school band and choir students. Our Christmas Concert will be on Thursday, December 13th and the Spring Concert will be on Thursday, May 23rd. Both concerts will be at 6:30 PM in the gym.
Fifth grade band students all have their instruments and books and are "making some noise" on these instruments! All of the books need to be purchased by the families-they are $10 each except the percussion book is $15. Mrs. Maves has applied this fee to your November Smart bill. Fifth graders are also responsible for practicing 60 minutes a week and bringing in a signed practice chart. Extra practice charts are in the band room.
The sixth, seventh, and eighth grade band students all have their concert music. Everyone should be spending regular time practicing each week. I am available lunch recess or Wednesday's after school to help anyone that needs it.
Solo and ensemble music festival for 7th and 8th grade band students will be held on Saturday, February 2nd. Any student that would like to participate should see Mrs. Napel to select music to start practicing on.
On Friday, February 22, 2019 we will be attending "The Lion King" at the Performing Arts Center Center in Appleton! We are very excited about seeing this outstanding performance! All current 6th - 8th grade band students and their families can attend. Everyone that is attending have had a $25 deposit taken out of Smart last spring. The remainder of the tickets fees will come out of your November Smart bill and the bus fees will be taken out in January. I will send a note home letting you know how much will be taken out in November.
Be sure to check out my announcements page to see our important dates.
