Sumner HS Band Program Students, Parents and Families:

I hope everyone has had a great Mother’s Day weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Thanks very much to all of the students and families that showed-up for our 2024-25 Sumner HS Band intro meeting last Tuesday night - it was great to see so many new faces and energetic students and parents. We’re going to get our incoming new students and parents into things ASAP so please help to welcome them to all that we do. It’s a BIG jump from Middle School to High School Band, especially with a very active Band Program like ours. We really appreciate the help that our older students and parents give to the new people just coming-in. The future of the Sumner HS Band Program certainly looks very bright!

As you all know, we’ve been getting ready for several weeks for our final full-group trip and our BIG performances at the Bremerton Armed Forces Day Parade and the Poulsbo Viking Fest Parade coming-up this Saturday May 18th. It’s been 7 years since we participated in these events and we’re looking forward to having a great day both performing and enjoying the festivals. We’ve attached our Time-Line and Information and Permission Forms (to the BLAST) so please make sure to check them over and get the forms and fee ($25 for this trip) in ASAP (please put checks or cash in a marked envelope and put the envelope in the SBPA Box in the Band Office). If you have any questions please contact us and I hope we’ll have a bunch of parent chaperones join us on the trip (and make sure you are OK’d by the District to be a chaperone) - sign-ups are on the Band website under sign-up genius. It looks like with the warm weather coming-up that we’ll be wearing the chaperone polos, black pants, shoes, and socks for these events.

So, here we go with a big week of Jazz Tryouts Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons as well as our final pre-parade full-group Marching Band sectionals and rehearsal on Wednesday afternoon - let’s hope the weather stays great, but remember to hydrate:
