Welcome to Cavitt Band!
Welcome Back! I hope you all had a fantastic summer (yes, I agree...it was TOO short!) I am very excited to see the kids next week!
For our first two days of school, the kids do not need to bring instruments. We have some other business/activities to keep us busy the first 2 days. We will play on Friday, August 17th, so dust off those instruments & locate the Blue Standard of Excellence books so that we can get started! Don't forget to buy new reeds, valve oil & other supplies you may need. Students may drop off instruments in the band room before school so that they don't have to carry them around all day!
See you soon!
