This is our last opportunity to help others and also to bless our community. You can place the books in the box outside the band room. Make sure to turn in the form as well with your name and how many books you brought in. 4 books will equal 1 hour of volunteer time, 8 books will be 2 hours and 12 books will be 3 hours of vounteer hours.

Make sure to bring your instrument, wear your Carowinds t-shirt, khaki shorts and tennis shoes. The students will arrive back at Cario at 11pm Friday night.

Instrument Testing:

Instrument testing is coming up on April 28th from 4-8. This is a chance for 5th graders to come and try out the instruments and see what is best for them. If you know any 5th graders please let them know that this event will be soon.

Honor Medals:

For those interested in the Honor Medal the final concert (when these will be handed out) is May 17th. You will need to make sure to complete all your smart music assignments for this as well as the volunteer hours and the concert attendance at least a week before this. If you need to look up the requirements again they can be found in the handbook which is on the web site. We will be having one more opprotunity for the kids to donate items in order to get the volunteer hours they need. Be on the look out for information about the Book Angels book drive.
