Note from the Cario Bands Booster President

We have had such a great start to our school year. I thank all of you for your patience as I have learned more new tech skills then I ever thought I would know. It is truly amazing to see all that the 6th graders have already learned and the way the 7th and 8th graders continue to grow musically. I can't thank the Band Booster Board and Committee Chairs enough for all their time and dedication they have spent to help get this year off to a good start. And thank you to the parents who have volunteered already and for all the addresses you sent in for the Annual Letter Writing Campaign.

From the Band Room Email: Now that students have their supplies, SmartMusic is installed and the 6th Graders have "played their first note", there isn't a need for a weekly FTBR (usually every other week now). All FTBRs are posted on our website In October I send more grade and event specific emails.
