Welcome Band Students and Families

Our 2018 band welcome and cookout was a huge success! Returning seventh and eighth grade DMS Viking Band students and their families met new Director Mr. Odeh and Assistant Director Ms. Ye and enjoyed a meet-and-greet and shared a meal together.

Band Parent Meeting and Cookout – Join Us!

Hello Viking Band Parents,

On Sunday, July 29th at 4:00 we will have our Band Parent Meeting followed by a cookout! We adjusted the time to avoid conflict with the high school band registration and to avoid the early afternoon sun and heat. The event is for all members of the DMS Honor Band, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band and their parents. If you wish to help with the event, look for an email from the Band Boosters explaining what you can do.

We will begin with a brief introduction of your new directors and then review some information for the year. We’ll discuss communication, CharmsOffice and the DMS Band Website, supplies and materials, and finances. We’ll show you how to order and pay for required materials provided through the band program (uniforms, shirts, binders). We’ll also show you how to sign up for private lessons and give students their locker combinations. The Viking Band Boosters will share some information with you, then we’ll have some time to answer any questions you may have. Once we finish, we’ll break for food and fellowship. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and your children!

Sincerely,

Edward Odeh
Band Director
