Weekly Update (1/22- 1/26)

Updated: Feb 5

This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


I made a post on the band app on Friday evening. I need everyone (regardless of if you plan to go on that trip or not) to read it and respond to the poll.



In 5 days, we've already raised $790! Keep on selling those Dominos Cards!


Here is the current guest list:


  • Mrs. Chelsey Roberts (Graduate Student at UNF and Former Band Director are Middleburg) will be joining us for Wind Ensemble Rehearsal on 1/25.


  • Dr. Marcus Dickman from University of North Florida will be joining us for Jazz Ensemble Rehearsal on 1/26.

  • Professor Christopher Creswell from Jacksonville University will be joining us for an added Jazz Ensemble Dress Rehearsal on 1/29.


  • Mr. Brett Pikuritz from Orange Park High School will be joining us for Wind Ensemble Rehearsal on 1/22. Because he isn't able to join us until later on that evening, this rehearsal will start at 5pm and go until 7pm. Please plan accordingly.


  • Dr. Paul Weikle from Florida State College of Jacksonville MIGHT be joining us for Wind Ensemble Rehearsal on 2/8.


  • Mrs. Heather Davidson from LaVilla School of the Arts will be joining us for Wind Ensemble Dress Rehearsal on 2/27.

  • Professor Christopher Creswell will be joining us for Wind Ensemble Dress Rehearsal on 2/29.


Over the next few days and weeks, we will hopefully have even more guest joining us. Huzzah!

Things to Note 🎵:


Leadership Mondays 2024


It's crazy that we already need to start thinking about Leadership for the upcoming school year! If you are interested in becoming a part of the leadership team for 23-24, then you should do the following:


  • Let a Drum Major/ Quartermaster know you are interested

  • Purchase 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey (Do NOT Purchase Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)

  • Plan to attend the Leadership Monday Meetings on 2/26, 3/4, 3/11, 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/15, and 4/22.

  • Take a look at the below document if you want some ideas on things that we look for out of potential candidates.

Some other things you should consider:

  • We are looking to e x p a n d our leadership team a little bit. (We don't know what this looks like yet).

  • We want to find a way for Captains/ QM to go to Leadership Camp as well as the DM's. (We don't know what this looks like yet).

  • You can talk to myself and other leaders about the process if you wish-- just remember to be judicious.
