OK, It's TIme to Get Going!

Hey friends -

Every year we have an AMAZING garage sale on the third weekend in August, and we have now started collecting donations of item to sell. Yay! Here's the donation schedule:

  • Sundays July 25 - August 15 - 3-5pm
  • Wednesdays July 21 - August 11 - 6-8pm

All donations are being received at the big band trailer, behind the Caring Closet near the THS track. 

Why am I telling you this? Because we need YOUR HELP on our donation days! For each donation day we need at least 1 adult and 2-4 students, so that's not too much - just a little help from everyone.

CLICK HERE to sign up for a shift. Do it now, and you'll feel great about helping the band!

Band Is Coming...

Hi friends! We are over halfway through July, so I'm thinking more and more about band. Today, I sent an email to everyone who is currently signed up for band class at Tigard High this Fall, so this would be a good time to take a moment and check your ttsd student email and see what's up. 

One way you can help me is to let me know of anyone who is interested in band but did not forecast for it. Also, anyone who might want to be part of the marching program but may not have signed up. Please, send me an email with any and all leads that can help us add folks to our fantastic program. CLICK HERE for a direct link to my school email.

Have a great rest of your July - we'll talk soon!

Time To Start Thinking About Marching Band!!

Now that we've survived living on the face of the sun (wow, those were a tough few days!), it's time to start thinking about our favorite activity - the Tigard High Marching Ensemble!! 

I'm meeting with drum majors this weekend and we'll be talking about putting together some fun summer band activities, recruiting incoming freshmen, who is in for sure for next Fall, who might be persuaded to join us in the Fall, what Band Camp might look like, and all sorts of good band stuff. Make sure you check back periodically to see what has been added - now that we are getting back to more normal-type activities, the Forum is the place to find all your MB information. 

Got a question? Need to communicate with McKee? CLICK HERE to send an email.

I've posted some band photos from the archives for your viewing enjoyment - talk with you soon!
