Dear Parents and Guardians,
The 6th Grade Band will perform at Band Festival on Friday, April 29th at Bonnabel High School (2801 Bruin Dr., Kenner, LA). The festival is an opportunity for the band to perform in front of a music judge and to receive assessment and feedback. Bands that do exceptionally well can receive the highest rating of a “1” or “Superior”. The students have been working extremely hard to prepare for this event and we are looking forward to a great performance and field trip.
Students will rehearse all together during their elective block starting on April 25th. It is very important that students remember to bring their instruments on these days!
The schedule for the festival day is as follows:
*DRESS – Wear black pants, maroon band polo, black belt, black TALL socks, and black shoes to school. You will not need your booksack/chromebook.
7:10 a.m. – Students report to advisory

There is no cost for this field trip, it has been covered by the fundraised monies from the World’s Finest Chocolate fundraiser. Adventure Quest will include pizza, laser tag, bumper cars, mini golf, and an adventure maze. If students would like extra coins for the arcade or extra snacks, they will need to bring money for that.
Please indicate on the permission form if you are available to chaperone or if you are available to pull the equipment trailer.
