School-Owned Instrument Check-in - Thursday-Friday 5/16 - 5/17

We will begin check-in all school owned instruments (oboe, bassoon, bass clarinet, tenor sax, bari sax, french horn, euphonium, tuba) on Thursday May 16th. (incl. all home instruments) We need to check them in to look for any repairs and or cleaning that may need to be done. We can recheck instruments out to returning Rogers band students the week after school is released or sooner if possible (assuming inventory is available). Outgoing 8th graders attending high school band will be able to check an instrument out during May camp.

Instruments should be returned with the following: valves oiled, slides greased, instrument wiped down (dry microfiber cloth), dust removed (q-tip helps in small places), corks greased, cases cleaned out (a vacuum hose attachment can help)

Beginners and SW students will be able to take their instruments home on Thursday 5/16 for the concert. However, they must be returned the next day on 5/17.

Prosper ISD Band Camp

We are VERY excited to announce the Third Annual PISD Middle School Band Camp. The camp is for students who will be in 7th or 8th grade for the 2024-2025 School year (current 6th/7th graders).

This is an amazing time to reach across the entire district to learn music, make some new friends and have a ton of fun! (and if nothing else, get your kids out of the house for a few hours) There will be a 7th grade camp in the morning and an 8th grade camp in the afternoon. Friday, we will present a concert and a take a trip for the all campers. Camp Week - June 3rd - 7th 2024
