Battle of the Books – 2017-2018 list




The Middle School has made some schedule changes that effect band and choir.   They will be moving them from the end of the day to lunch time (11:11 to 11:56) every day except Wednesday (10:30 to 11:56).   7/8th grade Band and 6th grade choir will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.   7/8 grade choir and 6th grade Band will be on Tuesday and Thursday.    The plan is to leave St. Joe’s at 11:05 and leaving DMS at 11:50.  As for Wednesdays, we could not accommodate a way for the students to go to band/choir without missing academic classes.   Your child is welcome to attend band/choir on all or some Wednesdays, but will be missing a core class and be responsible for making up the work.

Once again we cannot afford to ride the bus, so we will need parents to help with the driving.  I have made an online sign up for this.  We will use the band fee to reimburse the drivers.  If we do not have a driver, we will not attend band/choir on that day.
