Jazz Band Rehearsals this week... Tuesday 12/17 & Wednesday 12/18, 3:30pm-5pm. No Jazz Band Rehearsal on Thursday 12/19.
You're invited to see and hear the Grady Middle School Bands as we celebrate the season with a concert on Thursday, 12/5/13 at 6:30pm in the Grady Middle School Commons. Admission is FREE, but donations are greatly appreciated! The doors for the concert will open at 5:30 and refreshments will be available for purchase. Seating is limited, and traffic is heavy around Grady in the evening, so please plan accordingly.
This is the first concert for the Beginning Band which is always a special event! They will be showcasing all that they have learned in since they first started playing their instruments in September.
The Combined Advanced and Intermediate Band will be performing an array of holiday music from around the world. Their music is truly beautiful!
There are also a couple of fun surprises planned for the concert! We hope you can join us for the fun!
Student performers need to be in their seats ready to warmup at 6pm. This concert is a major project grade, and attendance is required. Students should plan to arrive at Grady by 5:45pm to allow enough time to get their instrument and music and to find their seat. Student performers must wear their Concert Uniform (Black Dress Shoes, black socks, black dress pants, black belt, and a white long sleeve button dress shirt with a collar) for the concert.
STUDENTS MAY NOT STAY ON CAMPUS AFTER SCHOOL. NO SUPERVISION IS AVAILABLE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY.

Grady MS Commons
We are moving chairs TODAY!
If you're available, we could use your help moving chairs from Briargrove to Grady today 12/4. We need the extra chairs for the Band Concert tomorrow (12/5).
We will meet at Briargrove at approximately 11:15. We have 3 trucks to move approximately 150 chairs. Now we need help loading and unloading. "Many Hands Make Light Work". Thanks!
Please contact Mr. Hall (email@example.com) if you're available to help move folding chairs from Briargrove Elementary to Grady for the band concert on Thursday, 12/5. We can move the chairs anytime during the day on Wednesday or Thursday. We need them at Grady MS before 3:30pm on Thursday. We're expecting a large audience for this concert, so we need some extra chairs to supplement the chairs we already have at Grady.
We're also looking for Volunteers to help run the popcorn machine before and during the concert, and to help accept donations at the door. Thank you!
