As many may have heard by now Mr. Smith, current Middle School and High School Band Director will become the 5th-8th grade band, 5th-8th chorus and Middle School general music director starting next fall.
I thought this announcement was in the records of the February School BOE minutes (which by the way now has April minutes posted). In looking thru them I was unable to find that record.
A new high School Band Director will be hired to teach High School Band and a number of classroom classes related to music.
I think Mr. Smith has been with the school for 28 years, but I may be mistaken on that. We, in the general public, have long felt that with the addition of the 5th thru 8th grade to the high school it was too much for one person to do. This move should be in the best interest of the school and Mr. Smith in ensuring our children have an acceptable amount of time given to them for band instruction.
Good luck with the Middle School next fall Mr. Smith.
