Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

Summer will soon be coming to an end and summer band will be upon us before we know it. We have scheduled summer band practice for August 10th-14th and August 17th & 18th from 1:00-3:00 p.m. for all incoming 8th grade -12th grade band members.

We are following all recommendations and guidelines from the UIL. UIL highly recommends a mask be worn and we will have masks available if needed. Remember these practices are not required so if you feel uncomfortable being in this environment or have any symptoms of COVID-19, I will provide you with music to learn at home. Please remember this schedule is subject to change due to Covid 19 regulations but I will keep you informed of any changes through Remind, the CHS Facebook page, and Coleman Today’s page.

We will have drum major tryouts during this period as well. If you are interested in trying out, please think about using good leadership skills during practices. Additional information about tryouts will be provided at our first practice.

Parents, guardians, and students please sign up for Remind 101 as this is how we will communicate news about the band. If you were in HS Band last year you are already signed up and do not need to sign up again. To sign up send a text to 81010 with the message @msowell. Any changes to the summer band practice schedule will be communicated through Remind 101 as well, so make sure to sign up. If you have any questions, you may communicate them with me through Remind 101.

We are looking forward to a great year at Coleman ISD and we cannot wait to get started!

  • Sincerely,
  • Matthew Sowell
