Main Event Social Event


On Friday, January 12th, the Pearson Band will have its annual Main Event Social at Main Event Frisco. This optional event will be from 4:30-7:30 PM.


Tickets to the Main Event Social will be $27 and will include a $10 game card, pizza, a drink, and unlimited access to bowling, laser tag, gravity ropes, billiards, shuffleboard, and mini-golf. Transportation will not be provided, so students will need to be dropped off at 4:30 and will need to be picked up by 7:30. Please see the attached guidelines list for more information.


Tickets for the event can be purchased on the Cheddar Up Online Store. Refunds will not be available for absent students, but they may use the purchased game card at any other point in time. This offer is for Pearson Band members only. Tickets must be purchased by Monday, January 8th at 11:59 PM.

Per Main Event policies, we will need several parent chaperones for this event. If you are available and willing to chaperone, please sign-up at this link. We currently have spots for 6 chaperones, but more might be needed later depending on how many students go on the trip.

We are so excited to have this fun event with our band family!

 

Daily Practice


All Beginning Band students should be taking their instrument home and practicing daily. During their practice time, students should play and reinforce concepts being taught in class and work on any material they are struggling to play. A daily practice habit is essential to becoming a great musician! Please help your student to build this habit by encouraging (and sometimes telling) them to practice every day.


Parents, the following is a fantastic guide for what and how your student should be practicing: https://practicingguide.weebly.com/
