Mission Jr. High Band
“Tradition of Excellence”
Dear Future Band Member,
I am so excited that you have chosen to become part of our GREAT band program here at Mission Junior High. I am looking forward to welcoming you and beginning the process of helping you find the right instrument. We are here to help you and your parents in any way possible. Do not worry about not knowing how to read music or play an instrument yet. We are going to teach you everything you need to know in order to become a great musician!
Signing up to be part of the band is a big step. You have chosen to be part of a huge team. This is going to be a place where you're going to make lots of friends and build life long relationships. Our band students are the best of the best! In addition to working hard we have a lot of fun. There is a lot of responsibility with being a member of the Mission Junior High Band. We challenge our band kids to be responsible, respectful, and to represent our band with pride. Band members are trustworthy, reliable, and dedicated. They work very hard in all their classes and are expected to maintain passing grades.
There are many ways to get an instrument. The first step is to familiarize you with the different instruments available. You will then select three that you would like to try. Before you select one we really want to make sure that it is going to be a good fit for you. You are unique and we are going to make sure your instrument fits you perfectly. Once you have narrowed your choices down to two you will be receiving a gold invitation letting you know which instrument you were selected for. It’s all very exciting!
This is going to be a great year and I can’t wait to get started. The expectations for Mission Junior High Band are set very high and I know you will rise up to them and be very successful. I look forward to seeing you very soon!
Mrs. Anne Rodriguez
Head Band Director
