2017-18 Sumner HS Spartan Band & Color Guard

6/18 thru 7/1 (Updated 6/17/18) 

....................................................................................

Happy Father's Day to everyone and congratulations on making it through a complete Sumner HS Band-Year.  We had 3 great nights last week, with our Awards Night on Monday, an outstanding Spring Concert on Tuesday Night, and a beautiful night for Graduation and an excellent performance by the Jazz Ensembles and Symphonic Band.  Congratulations again to all of our 2018 Seniors and I hope they'll come back from time to time and let us know what they are up to.  Thanks very much also to all of the parents that helped in so many ways over this past week - we couldn't have done it without you.  We've had a great year in 2017-18 but now we start to think ahead to 2018-19 with our 2 day Sumner HS Band Mini-Camp on Monday and Tuesday from 5:00-8:00PM and our first Summer MB rehearsal on Thursday at SUMNER MIDDLE SCHOOL from 5:30-7:45PM (I haven't heard anything different yet, but I'll keep you posted if our location changes).  The Mini-Camp is important in several ways:  it gives our upperclassmen the chance to start leading the younger students, it gives us a chance to see what our instrumentation and section-numbers will look like, and it gives our new members a couple of days to see what awaits them later this summer and next year as they instantly become "varsity starters" in our Band Program.  For Summer Band, we take the intensity down and have a lot of fun with it, and for many students this is a chance to relax and enjoy getting together with their friends a couple of times a week.  So let's look at these last few days of the 2017-18 school-year as a fresh start with everybody moving-up a rung on the ladder.  Don't forget about the first SBPA Meeting on Monday at 7:00PM - I'm hopeful that with it happening during Mini Camp we'll get some new parents attending and learning more about our Sumner HS Band Program.  So here we go with our schedule for the next couple of weeks:

I hope that the Sumner HS Band Program is as much an enjoyment for you as it is for Mrs. Carl, Mr. Olaiya, and me.  Yes, it can sometimes be long days and nights, and lots of hard work both musically and physically, but it is so much fun to bring people together and put things together, whether it is at rehearsals in the Band Room or outside, the performances at so many different places and conditions.  The years go by so fast but are full of great memories - we've had a wonderful year of great things we have done.  Now let's get ready to make more great memories for next year stating Monday.  Thanks very much.
