Thanks to everyone who helped with the BBQ and the Banquet. We certainly
had 2 great events this weekend. Here is the address to the Jelly Bean
video from the banquet. Sorry it was hard to hear. I hope you’ll take a
few minutes to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOksW_NabEk

JH Jazz Band 5/17

As I mentioned to students in class yesterday, we will be having a shorter
jazz band rehearsal tomorrow (Wednesday, May 17th) after school. We will
meet from 2:45pm-3:25pm. This will be our last rehearsal for the year and
will serve as a quick run through of our music for the chicken BBQ.

Students that can’t be picked up until 4pm will be able to stay in the the
JH to wait for rides. These students should plan on waiting by the MAIN
doors to the JH, not by the band room.

Thanks for a great year in jazz band! Have a great summer.

FT Bands Chicken BBQ Update

*AWBB Chicken BBQ*
Our final public performance of the year for the 5th and 6th grade bands
will take place at the annual bands Chicken BBQ on Saturday, May 20th at
the AWHS Main Gym. This is a fun performance where ALL bands from AW play
throughout the day and the Anthony Wayne Band booster organization
sells chicken dinners as a fundraiser. The 5th grade band performs at
6:00pm and the 6th grade band will perform at 5:00pm. Students should wear
their blue band shirt and whatever kind of pants/shorts/skirts they would
like on the bottom. Students who are unable to attend should have a parent
contact Mr. Ladd (5th grade) or Mr. Young (6th grade) as soon as possible.

*Chicken BBQ Report Times*
Students will report to the Auxiliary Gym (161) at the HS to assemble
instruments and prepare for the performance. See the attached map for help
finding the Auxiliary gym.
6th Grade: Report at 4:40pm to Aux Gym, Perform at 5:00pm in Main Gym
5th Grade: Report at 5:40pm to Aux Gym, Perform at 6:00pm in Main Gym

Students are officially free to go as soon as their performance is over,
but we would HIGHLY encourage the FT band students to stay after their
performance to hear the High School Symphonic Band or Symphonic Winds that
follow with performance at 5:30 or 6:30pm. This would be a great
opportunity for the younger students to hear our advanced high school
players and get some free musical inspiration. All performances are free
and open to the public.

Here is the full performance schedule for the Chicken BBQ…
