****We finally gained access to the Chiddix Bands webpage and have been able to update the pertinent information. At this time of the year the most important thing to do is to copy the dates off of the calendar and put them on your family calendar. Check your respective grade level page for some announcements concerning our concerts. I will also upload a document that contains all of the concert dates as well as put them in the "announcement" box on the lower right hand side of the page. Try to get into a habit of looking at the page at least once a week.
One piece of information that was sent home via Skyward email on two different occasions dealt with the 8th grade night with the Marching Ironmen and / or the Marching Wildcats. Please check the 8th grade page for last minute information.
One thing that I will do differently this year is to try to keep this first page clear items that are no longer current. The picture / archive page will have pictures and / or announcements that were made that help tell a little history of the band when new students, parents and teachers work with the program.
The most important thing to remember about the website is that if you have ANY questions throughout the year PLEASE ask. Thanks for all of your help and support that you give to the Chiddix Bands! 9-15-16
