KCB/KSW After-school Rehearsal Schedule Changes

Hi all,

For Kaimuki Concert Band (KCB), the schedule this week has been modified to the following:

Wednesday, Aug. 29 – KCB Woodwind has been cancelled
Thursday, Aug. 30 – KCB Brass has been cancelled
Friday, Aug. 31 – KCB Full Band Rehearsal 2:25PM – 3:30PM

For Kaimuki Symphonic Winds (KSW), the schedule this week has been modified to the following:

Thank you for your understanding and please let us know if you have any questions.

Schools will be closed on Thursday, 8/23/18 and Friday, 8/24/18

Hawaii public schools and Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) offices statewide will be closed Thursday and Friday as Hurricane Lane approaches the islands as a powerful Category 4 storm. This will give our school communities time to prepare — the storm is anticipated to impact Oahu Thursday evening and Kauai on Friday — and allow counties to stand up emergency shelters.

Please stay safe.

Just a friendly reminder that Open House begins tomorrow and wraps up on Thursday.

Tue., Aug. 21 – Open House – Advanced Strings, Concert Band

Thu., Aug. 23 – Open House – Beginning Strings, Beginning Band

Cafeteria doors open at 5:30PM and the Open House runs from 6:00PM – 7:00PM.

We are also looking for some interested parents who would like to join the KMS Music Boosters this year. Boosters assist the music directors with event planning (e.g. Winter Concerts, Aloha Concerts, Banquet), fundraising, and manpower coordination. Meetings are informally held on the first Wednesday of the month at 5:45 in N-102. If you are interested, we will have a Booster sign-up sheet right next to the sign-in sheet at the Open House. Should you have questions, you are more than welcome to ask the directors or the boosters at Open House.

Thank you and we’ll see you soon!
