West Branch Ogemaw Heights - Matt VanHam
Clare Area Schools - ?
Who all else changed? Email me and let me know!
I have now updated the Dist 9 All Star Page with the 2016 roster as well as updating the calendar with the All Star Weekend times.
If you notice someone's name is wrong or missing let me know but ALSO update that Google Docs file!
I have also updated the minutes page with the last couple of meetings minutes. Thanks to Karen for getting us the minutes so quickly - I think that really makes a HUGE difference using Google Docs!
check out the All Star Band page for the scales. The music has been there for a couple of days too!
Go to the All Star Band to get this school years audition music for All Star Band!
MMC Registration is now open!
Are you one of those sticky note people with notes all over your desk and walls?
Why not put your technology to use for you!? Every time you create an event in your calendar or to-do list you should evaluate if this is something that happens every year. If it is then set the event to be a repeating event for every year, every month or every week. Non sense in trying to remember what you need to do every single year, year after year! Let you technology remind you!
Welcome to our new directors in District 9
Alpena High School - Mike Gozzard
Clare Area Schools - Adam Cable
West Branch-Rose City - Nicholas Chernich
You must not forget to get you and your school membership turned in to the state office by mid-September!
If you are a new director to District 9 then please contact our President, Ray Reynolds. Introduce yourself and chat for a moment with him. Contact the Director from a neighboring school or two. We are all friendly people and more than willing to help you with ANY questions you may have! Whether it is about MSBOA, daily Band Director things, or where the best restaurant is!
Lastly, please check out our calendar so that you know our District deadlines. Set alarms to go off a couple of weeks before the deadline to remind yourself. Then set another alarm to go off a couple of days before. In fact, just get registered when that first alarm goes off a couple of weeks early! Make sure you get to know your school finance person and how the process works to get checks for entry fees. You do NOT want to be caught waiting for that check and miss the deadline!
To be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late and to be late is unacceptable!
All the latest District 9 news from the best people to deliver that news to you!
