The BCPS School Board voted unanimously to change the Exploratory plan for the 2003-2004 school year at a special board meeting Monday, April 28. The plan, which was recommended to the board by Associate Superintendent Carolyn Wierda, includes Band as well as several other exploratory areas every day for all sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. There will be some other changes to the band program however for the year. One major change is that the seventh and eighth grade bands will not meet altogether as a class. Each band will be split and part of the band will meet in the morning and part will meet in the afternoon. This will make it necessary for some after school rehearsals in order to work on Ensemble skills. More news to come as it becomes available. Thank you again to all the parents that worked so hard to help maintain the band program at Western and Handy.
