Band Buddies Social Event
Band Buddies is a peer mentoring program for students in the Pearson Band. September 14th is our kick-off event - students will find out who their peer mentor is and learn how they can earn prizes through the year. We will be serving ice cream during the event. Students were given the opportunity to sign up and indicate if they wanted to participate in this program. The event on September 14 is for students who said, yes, they want to participate.

Hosp Elementary Performance
We have been asked to perform at Hosp Elementary on Friday September 22 to celebrate their school-wide fundraiser kickoff!! We are very excited about this opportunity!!
7:10am - meet at the front Entrance of Hosp
7:15am - begin performing
7:45am - performance ends
Due to transportation restrictions, we are not able to take a bus, so all students who perform MUST get their own ride from Hosp to Pearson so they are not late for the start of the school day at 8:25am. We highly suggest carpooling!!
Donuts will be provided to all students who participate. There will be a sign-up sheet in the Pearson Band Hall so we know who and how many students are performing. This is an optional event.
Students in Symphonic Band and Concert Band will attend a weekly sectional. Click here to view the schedule.
