1.  Minneapolis Trip FeePay (Finally) Posted The Minneapolis trip is posted on FeePay (under "Fees").  Please log on and complete it at your earliest convenience.  Permission and medical forms should have been turned in last week, so please get them in ASAP. 2.  Solo/Ensemble Reminders - Remember that class A solos must provide your own published judge's copy. The school will provide judge's copies for ensembles and for Class B/C solos (provided you got the music from us in the first place). - Accompanists are coming as early as Thursday!  Check the schedule in the band room, and bring your piano part (class A only). - Registration fees are not on FeePay yet but will hopefully be posted soon. - Performance schedule will be available early next week. 3.  Parent-Teacher Conferences If you are interested in an individual conference on either February 27th or March 4th, please reach out to one of the band teachers.  We especially encourage a conference for sophomores and juniors who are considering collegiate study in music. 4.  Pep Band Don't forget that each student needs to attend a total of four games for the 2019-20 pep band season.  There are six games left.  All make-ups must be completed before spring break, so don't delay! 5.
