Dear Parents and Guardians,

     Little Axe Public Schools is pleased to announce a band program that will begin in the Fall 2018 starting with the 5th grade up through 9th grade. Our band teacher will be meeting with beginning students soon to explain the program, complete a music aptitude test, and demonstrate the instruments to students. We also want to reach out to students who have previously been in band and get them involved again. We hope that you will encourage your student to become a part of this exciting experience. Instrumental music will further enrich your student’s educational and cultural understandings and provide a very positive peer group for your student.

   

      Studies show that students involved in music are at the top in academic performance, and score higher on national test such as the ACT/SAT. These students become leaders in their schools and this continues into adulthood.

    

     Parent and guardian involvement in the music program is very important. We invite you and your student to attend a brief meeting on Tuesday April 24th at 6:30pm in the Little Axe Middle School cafeteria. We will try to answer all of your questions about the band program and this exciting opportunity for your student. Punch and desert will be served. We hope that you will plan to attend on April 24th!

Respectfully,

Matt Horton

Band Teacher
