Welcome Back, Millennium Band Family!

It has been great getting to see your children’s bright, shining faces this past week!  I am looking forward with great anticipation to when we begin playing later this week!

In the spirit of getting ready for that glorious event, here is some information that you need to know to have everyone ready for next week!

  • We will begin playing on Tuesday, August 25.  Students will need their instruments and their Foundations for Superior Performance book.
  • Students who will be renting from the school will be given an instrument to play on Tuesday.
  • On Tuesday, August 25, from 6:30-8:30PM, there will be a meeting beginning in Millennium Hall where students will be able to:
    • Turn in Rental Contracts and be issued a school instrument
    • Be fitted for their concert uniforms and new band shirts (if needed)
    • Be issued a lock & locker
    • Make payments on the Band Assessment for the year
  • On Monday, August 24, students will kick off the Fall Fundraiser, a sale of chocolate items and tumblers.  It will last from August 24 until September 9.  The money earned from this fundraiser can be applied towards the Band Assessment ($100) & School Instrument Rental ($100).
  • Student assignments will be posted in eCampus/Canvas.  Students will need to access eCampus via the SCPS Portal (on a computer) or via the free Canvas app (on a mobile device).  Student logins are in the following format:
    • Login: Student ID#
    • Password: Birthdate (yyyymmdd)
  • Students were given binders and plastic page protectors to keep their band materials organized and safe.  These were provided courtesy of the successful fundraising from last year!
  • Please sign up for the Remind notification service.  The code for signing up for the Wind Ensemble notifications is:
