Land of Band and Color GuardSpring Break
As you know by now, the PYLUSD has extended our school closure to June 11 with distance learning continuing on. Although I understand the need for this during the world’s pandemic, it still hurts that we cannot hold our end of the year events as normal. I am currently collaborating with our staff on how we can continue on with auditions and clinics to prepare for next fall while trying to find ways to postpone our performances. I will remain hopeful but obviously will have to work within district restrictions and guidelines on events and gatherings.
In the meantime, I wanted to say thank you to our students for being active in Google Classroom and completing tasks that we have given you. It is also great to stay connected via the BandApp and Instagram. During this Spring Break, I will be taking time to be more active on social media.
If you haven’t done so already, you can follow the band at @edhs_instrumental_music_dept

Here’s What’s Up for This Week
Monday – Friday
Booster Board Update
As we move forward through this unprecedented time, we continue to look for ways to continue to support our students, staff, and program. One of the primary tasks in front of us is the confirmation vote for the board for our 2020-2021 school year that will take place during our April Booster meeting. Yes! We’re going to have one. We’ll be conducting it via Zoom.
I wanted to also make you aware that there is a need for nominations for the key role of Vice President of Ways and Means. This role is to direct/oversee fundraising efforts for the program, and is critical to our success. While we have several parents that have volunteered to take a lead role in individual fundraisers, the Ways and Means VP will need to be there for oversight and support of those individual fundraisers, and be able to attend Booster Board meetings. Please reach out to either Lori Arneal (email@example.com) or myself, Andy Shomph (firstname.lastname@example.org), with questions or with nominations.
As stated above, our April Booster meeting will be held via Zoom – you will get an invite link in next week’s Land of Band – please be on the lookout – also, please note that the zoom meeting is only available for the first 100 participants. We will provide a voting link for confirmation of next year’s Board next week. The list of nominees will be included in our next Land of Band.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we navigate everything in front of us. We hope that you and yours remain healthy and safe.
