Central School District has postponed all school activities and trips, and that is including our spring concert scheduled for March 18. There are a few possible dates after spring break that we can reschedule, if the situation with COVID-19 improves. I am disappointed the students cannot show off their skills just yet, but I am hopeful we will be able to reschedule at a later date.
All after school activities have also been suspended before spring break, so students will not be spending time in the band room either. Including Pep Band and open practice.
We will spend all the class time when need making sure students can catch up with their work, and continue to enhance their skills.
We will spend time sanitizing and cleaning the instruments.
All instruments to go home for spring break.
I am praying for health, happiness, and peace in this time of uncertainty.
Blessings on you and yours,

Congratulations to the 8th grade band for their Excellent performance at the Los Osos band festival on Saturday March 9, 2019. They performed well on the stage and that continued into the sight reading room.
In the sight reading room, we were given music that we have never seen before. After getting to chat about it for 4 minutes, the students performed the piece for another music judge. He proceeded to compliment us on the task. They scored an Excellent from this judge as well.
Thank you parents!
Thank you parents for being a part of the day. Thank you to the parent chaperones for helping us move around the many locations. Thank you parents that attended and were a great audience. Thank you to the parents that supported us with water donations.
Congratulations to the 7th grade band who scored an “Excellent” on their Festival on March 6. Out of three judges, one of them scored us a “Superior” and the other two “Excellent”. They students were complemented on their performance in the clinic room following their performance.
The judges praised the students on how professionally they were dressed and how well they were behaved during the performance.
Thank you parents!

In recognition of their Excellent performance, FORM and the Music Department will purchase pins from the Southern California Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) that displays the Excellent score. These pins can be worn on the students’ collar for their future performances, then be added to their high school Letterman jacket.
We are looking for a parent representative for the Friends of Ruth Musser meetings.
