Next Saturday, all day, we need as much help as possible at this Solo & Ensemble regional instrumental competition for young musicians. Please consider volunteering: click below to sign up for a slot or two. Thanks!
From Mr. Haag:
The next big event is the OMEA Solo & Ensemble contest that we are hosting here at KMS on Saturday 23 FEB. We have 305 entries representing over 500 students and about 200-300 parents/family members coming from South Kitsap, Mason County, Bainbridge Island and all points in between. We need help running the event.
We have 12 judges hired, Ted Brown Music will be here for repairs, and the Navy Band Northwest Woodwind Quintet will be performing a noontime concert in the library. We need to have parents help supervise as door guards for the adjudication rooms and supervisors for the aux gym/commons area, library, and setup/cleanup crews. It will be the largest musical event happening in Kitsap County that day.
[Here is] a digital copy of the JOB SIGNUP SHEETS I showed students in classes yesterday. Some students and parents have already signed up. These are the blank sheets so you can see what and where the need is. If you are able and willing please reply to me via email. Thanks!
An updated schedule of when students are playing is here KMS & KHS SCHEDULE 2019 . Students who help out will receive extra credit, and we will be feeding all parent and student helpers free pizza and snacks for lunch that day.
Below is a link to the Signup Genius for the upcoming Viking Jazz Fest that our Jazz Band will be taking part in on Thursday, Jan 31st.
“First concert is Monday 05 NOV 7pm at KMS. Students are working hard in all bands to share what they are learning and have accomplished this fall quarter. We look forward to seeing you there.” – Mr. Haag
Happy New Year, KMS Band Families!
How has your summer been?
In the effort to get back on track for the 2018 – 2019 school year, please consider the following upcoming dates and activities:
We 09/05 6:00 – 7:00 pm – KMS Band Boosters meeting. Yes it is the first day of school; no that is not why we are meeting. Traditionally, we meet every first Wednesday of a school month. Everyone is welcome!
Mo 09/10 6:00 – 7:30 pm – Open House. We will have a table with informational flyers, sign-up sheets, sweatshirt orders. Please stop by! Ask us about volunteer opportunities: your support determines how much we can do for our budding musicians.
Tu 09/11 5:00 – 8:00 pm – KMS Cavalier Band (that’s your kiddos and families!) BBQ Info Night. Ted Brown Music will be in attendance, to give you an opportunity to purchase or rent an instrument.
We will leave it there for now, but expect a lot more fun and information in the months to come, from seasonal concerts to band trips and performances, domestically and abroad!
Can’t wait to see you and hear from you!

Great job with Uniform check-in this morning, All! I’m so impressed with the organization and thoroughness of the uniform check. You all made our jobs so much easier. Thank you! We are 100% checked in for Uniforms. Yay!
Tomorrow Morning 5/23/18 @8am:
We will be loading the truck with our luggage and instruments tomorrow morning at 8:00am. We could use a few more adult volunteers to make things go smoothly. We have created color coded name tags for each student to make luggage location easier once at the hotel(Thank you, Danielle!). Please pick up your nametags and attach them to the bags at drop off.
Doors open at 6:00am. Call time is 7:00am. Please pack photo ID, lunch and LOTS of snacks (or even two lunches) and a reusable water bottle in your student’s carry-on bag along with their cell phone(if applicable) and charger and any other items they want to bring on the plane. Please remember TSA restrictions for carry on luggage.
Bring your luggage for the truck along with your student’s. I can meet earlier if you have a conflict with work. Please let me know ASAP if you need to meet before 7:30am tomorrow. If you have an extra plug extension please bring it along to charge your students’ cell phones overnight. You can place this in your packed bag if possible. (The hotel won’t have enough plugs)
Questions?! Please email anytime!
We’re Going to Disneyland!!!
