Dear Parents

This letter is to inform you that I will be having rehearsal for the bands in the summer. This will give your child the opportunity to continue growing as an instrumentalist. The breakdown would be this year’s current 5th and 6th graders during one hour and the current middle school band students during the next hour. We will be meeting in the High School band room. The students would press the doorbell on Door 19. Below is a list of times for each group as well as dates. Please contact me with any questions you have. My office phone number is 473-4030. Email is ppecher@ns.whiting.k12.in.us I will be able to return email quicker than a phone call because I have access to my work email at home.

The first Wednesday that we meet will be an end of the year event. This is a party that I promised both groups. I will be providing pizza, pop and snacks

The rehearsals are not mandatory. If for some reason your child will not be participating, I just ask that you send me an email or note letting me know. Also, if for any reason they would be missing a practice, I ask that you email me or call at any time and let me know.

Again, thank you for allowing me to work with your child this year. You have made an investment in their future and I am truly grateful for your support.
