Yorba Meadows Wrap Up  – thank you to ALL of the parents and students who helped set up, tear down and attend our end of the year concert! It has been an honor and pleasure to teach this group of students every day, and I will certainly miss them next year.

6/3 Pizza Party – All Orchestra Students!  – 4:30-6 pm, EHS West Campus MPR. Mr. Fang from Esperanza HS Orchestra has invited all BYMS orchestra students to an end of the year Pizza Party and Rehearsal! We will be playing some music from The Greatest Showman, Bohemian Rhapsody, and a few other songs alongside high schoolers and then enjoy some pizza to celebrate the end of a successful year. It would be great to have 100% attendance from BYMS. All students who go will receive extra credit, free pizza and a really fun time! See attachment

1st Annual Paper Plate Awards – 6/11 Band and Orchestra classes have been nominating their peers for various awards (i.e., Most Dependable, Best Compliments, Highest Notes Played) to be presented at the first annual Paper Plate Awards Ceremony. Students are invited to come after school to the MPR to receive their award(s) and celebrate one last time as a full instrumental music program.

Instrument Check In will begin on 6/5. If you are an 8th grader, please plan to bring your instrument(s) in to be checked in. If you are a 7th grader, you may check your instrument out for the summer, but please bring it in so we can verify serial number, quality, and make any necessary repairs. Final day for instrument check in is 6/14 for Adv. Orch & Jazz Band Instruments.

Section Leader & Leadership Team Interviews/Auditions will occur during the week of 6/3. More information will be given via Google Classroom.
