• We will be asking specific band students to participate in Summer Lessons with Mr. Leedy. Those students and families will be contacted soon.

  • If you are renting your instrument from Hurst Music, take it home. Leave it at home.
  • If you are using an instrument loaned to you from Baker, please return that instrument to school by Thursday.
  • If you own your instrument outright, please take it home. Leave it at home.
  • If you are unsure, please email Mr. Leedy. We will clarify.

  • All students (5th & 6th) need to return their Bandapalooza concert music. If you’d like to keep a copy for yourself, snap a pic of it with a phone before turning it in.


  • Summer is the perfect time to perform maintenance on your instrument.
  • If you are renting your instrument from Hurst Music, they have an excellent repair shop. They can: fix damage, clean the instrument, and get the instrument into playing condition.
  • Your red book has a maintenance page in the front of the book. We will review this in class but I suggest looking at it at home as well. Do not do anything to your instrument you are not comfortable with.
  • Caution: Water and woodwind instruments DO NOT MIX. I cannot stress this enough.
  • Never leave your instrument in a car. Keep it safe and in the house.
  • Caution: Tools and brass instruments DO NOT MIX. I cannot stress this enough.
  • If you are unsure about anything maintenance related, do not hesitate to email Mr. Leedy. We are happy to assist.

  • When is my child’s next band commitment? Tentatively Saturday August 20th – ReStart Camp (This is for students who will be in 6th grade band next year only).

Dates

  • We will update this calendar soon. You may access and refer to it at any time.
  • Tuesday August 9th – Back to School Night – Last Names A-K

Last but not least, thank you for a great year! Enjoy summer!
