Practice-A-Thon Kick-off!

We will be kicking-off our 2015 Practice-A-Thon Fundraiser next week.  The fundraiser will consist of a week of pledges/donations, a week of recorded practice, and a week of collection.  Unlike the standard catalog fundraiser, 100% of the funds raised through our Practice-A-Thon will go to the Killian Band and will directly impact our students and program.  The Killian Band appreciates your generosity and support during this important time.  Please contact a director if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support!

All-Region Clinic & Concert THIS Saturday (1/10/15)

If your child was selected as a member of the All-Region Band, the Clinic and Concert is this Saturday, January 10, 2015.  An information letter provided by the Region 24 Chair can be downloaded here - All-Region Info .  If you are unsure of whether or not your child made the region band, a list of students who made the All-Region Band can be found a few posts down from November.

For your convenience, a bus will be provided to transport students to the event on Saturday morning. Parents are welcome to drive their child to the event themselves.  The LISD provided bus will depart KMS at 7:15am.  Students can arrive at the Band Hall as early as 7:00am.  

Transportation to lunch will be provided by LISD and students will only need to bring money to purchase their own lunch at Mooyah Burger.  Students are welcome to bring a sack lunch if they would prefer.

Parents will need to make arrangements to pick-up their child from the event at 4:30pm and transport them to the concert Saturday evening.  Please email Mr. Chilton if you have any questions.

Selection to the All-Region band is one of the highest honors an individual student can achieve in middle school band.  It should be a fun and impressive event!
