7:00 Concert begins with 7th grade band playing first and 8th grade band sitting in the seats. DO NOT DRAW ATTENTION TO YOURSELF WHILE SITTING IN THE SEATS. When the 7th grade finishes they will exit the stage while the 8th grade comes on. 7th graders will sit in the seats while the 8th grade band performs.

After the concert: Check and see if chairs and stands need to be put up and percussion taken back to the bandroom. Once that is done you can depart and take your instruments home for Winter Break.

REMINDERS: Concert uniform is your DMS Bands polo shirt and khaki pants. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please remember that you represent DMS Bands at all times and all of your actions, positive or negative, reflect back on the band program and all the students involved with it.

Band Spirit Wear!

Today students are receiving information on how to order Band Spirit Wear! Students are receiving a paper form order, but there is an online option to purchase your clothing, which means you don't have to send your student to school with money and your Band Director doesn't have to count it all! The sale ends 8/28 so order today! This is not a required thing, we just wanted our students to have an option to have cool shirts that say Decatur Middle School Band!

Items can be purchaed at: shop.fancloth.com/46221/264993

Please note: This is not how you order your Concert Uniform Polo Shirt. Those forms will go out early September.

Great job Nathan, Vivian, Anissa, and Hayley!

This concert is a way for us to judge what we need to work in our last week and half before our performance at the ISSMA Organizational Festival. As such, it is imperative, and required, that everyone attend. Missing this concert will render you ineligible to perform at the ISSMA Festival. During our performance we have a band director in the auditorium listening and making notes. After the performance she will talk to the students for a short time and give some tips and pointers on things to improve upon! Concert uniform is the same it has always been: DMS Bands POLO shirt and KHAKI PANTS. Remember, everything you do is a representation of our Band, Our School, and your fellow Students!
