Update from Mr. Parker 6-15-18…..Pride of Bixby Summer Activities
I hope your summer is off to a great start. I wanted to send you this email to touch base on some activities that are coming up this summer. Please email me should you have any questions Jeremyparker@Bixbyps.org
Pride of Bixby “Thursdays in July”:
We will have voluntary rehearsals the following Three Thursdays. This applies to all incoming 9-12 Woodwind and Brass Students that are participating in the HS Band next year. You are expected to be at these rehearsals if you are in town…..please make arrangements with work schedules. I know that some students will be at camps or scheduled vacations…..that is fine. This is where students will be issued school instruments and some music for the season. We will spend time outside so please bring water, sunscreen, sunglasses and proper footwear.
