7th and 8th Grade Band Concert and LGPE



1 March 2017

Dear 8th grade and 7th Grade Band Parents


Our performances are nearly here!!!   We are working very hard to help our students prepare for their LGPE performance as well as their preview concert at Barber MS on the 9th of March.  LGPE stands for Large Group Performance Evaluation.  It is critical that we have “all hands on deck” for this event.  Essentially, it is our version of the Georgia Milestones.  We have lots of music to learn, and tons to practice.  We have a long way to go, but we are making strides every day.   We have several events coming up to mark on your calendars.

Please make sure that your student brings $10.00 to Mr. Grogan for Dinner at Stevie B’s by Friday, March 10th.  If you opt out of dinner, please make sure that your child brings a sack meal.  We will be stopping at Stevie B’s Pizza for food either in-route or after the performance, depending on the ensemble.  He or she will also need to make sure that they have their full concert attire for the day of the trip.

For all the trips, your child needs to take the bus to the school.  Your student will need to be picked up after school in the evening once we return it they are in the 7th grade band.  Parents are more than welcome to attend the LGPE performance. Please check the Barber Band Calendar on my website to verify the exact time of the LGPE performance for your child’s band.  Thank you for all of your support and advocacy and please let me know if you have any questions.
