• Seventh Grade Band Early Morning Rehearsal Schedule 

    Hello, welcome to our Early Morning 7th Grade Band schedule!

    All Middle School Early Morning Rehearsals begin at 7:20AM. 

    Seventh grade band students WILL HAVE EARLY MORNING REHEARSAL EVERY WEEK (usually on Wednesdays for 7th graders, though this occasionally changes due to concert dates) BEGINNING AT 7:20 AM.


    Rehearsals are in the SMS Band Room. Students should be dropped off in the morning (there is no busing for AM rehearsals) at the lower circle (walking in by the auditorium). Please use the Catherine/Kelwynne Rd. entrance.


    We will begin rehearsals in late September/early October. THE SCHEDULE IS BELOW.

    WE WILL START PLAYING AT 7:20 AM. Tardiness is not appropriate as it interrupts the experience for all the students. It is expected that students are ready to play at 7:20 AM. Rehearsals will be every WEDNESDAY morning unless otherwise noted by Dr. Slot. We take breaks from Early Morning Rehearsals (January/early February, late May/June) a few times in the year based on our performances.
