Tag Sale Saturday 10/17

Our 8th Annual YHS Music Boosters Tag Sale will be held on Saturday, October 17, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The money generated from this sale benefits every student in our music program; helping to fund our annual festival trips and music dept. events. Last year we earned over $3,000 and are hoping for an even better sale this year!

We are asking for donations of items to sell (kitchen items, clothing, furniture, DVD’s, books, etc.); what a great opportunity to scour your homes for un-used items and do some autumn cleaning!

A flyer is attached on a document here FYI. Feel free to share with family/friends or post on work or community bulletin boards. Parent volunteers will be needed. In the coming weeks, look for an e-mail from parent-organizer Cindy Scinto ([email protected]) to find out how you can help.

Pep Band Friday 9/25 @ Somers

This is an away game. A sign up sheet is available in the band room.

What: Pep Band performance at Somers HS
When: Friday, September 25th at 5:45pm. Meet at YHS to catch the bus. Game-time 7:15pm, we should be home by 10pm. Students must ride the bus to and from the game, or get a ride from a parent to and from the game.

Band Lessons

Began last week. All students have a homework assignment that will be graded at next week’s lesson. You should hear your student practicing at home :). If students have a question about their assignment, or would like some extra help, please have them see Ms. Kluga. As with any academic class, is important they get their questions answered before the assignment is due. If you have questions about this important part of your student’s grade in band, please review the YHS Band Handbook found here, or contact Ms. Kluga.

First Pep Band Was a Success!

Many thanks to the 60 YHS Band students who turned out last Friday night to cheer our Varsity Football team to victory over John Jay. The atmosphere was electric, the bleachers packed with our Husker community, and the Pep Band was a huge presence (and voice!). Our next Pep Band performance will be Friday 9/25 @ Somers. Details above.
