• CMS Music Monthly Newsletters  Hearing the News.

     

     

    August 2022:

     

    Greeting CMS music families,

    I would like to welcome you to the start of the 2022-2023 school year here at Colony Middle School.  This email is my August newsletter for the school year.  For new families, I send out a newsletter normally at the end of a month to help keep you informed of what is coming up as there are lots of moving parts to this program. 

    This year is a little more difficult start of the school year for me because I will be on a theater field trip to NYC with some former students of mine from Aug. 6-13.  These students have been waiting 3 year (due to COVID) to go to NYC and take a week worth of classes with Broadway actors, directors, musicians, and talent scouts and we are finally gone to get this done.  But because of it, I will be missing the Colony MS Open House night (Aug. 11) and miss some of the important thing that normally start my year as a staff member of CMS.   I also have less time to get things prepared for the first day of school.  That is why you are getting this newsletter as early as I am providing it.   

    So, here is what is coming up.

    1. Sign-ups for the fall musical “The Music Man Jr” are going to happen at Open House on Aug. 11 and the first couple days of school. We are looking for actors (and stage crew) to play one of the 20+ parts we have for this show.   Wetherall is directing this year and she will be at CMS that night to help sign students up.  You can also talk to or sign-up with Mr. Wargo as well because he normally helps with this.  I will be finishing updating information on my CMS Music page in the next 2 weeks which will include a “rehearsal schedule”.  To audition, students must go to the audition practice on Aug. 17 and/or 18 from 2:30-4PM in the band room.  Auditions are Aug. 19 after school.  We will post the cast that night and rehearsals will start on Aug. 22 after school.  You can email me if you have questions.
    2. I have my own CMS MUSIC OPEN HOUSE on Aug. 22 at 7PM in the CMS cafeteria. This is a chance for families to not just meet me but to learn about the in’s and out’s of this program as we are trying to bring almost everything back online this year.   I will be covering grading, policies, activities students can get involved in, general information, showcase our music booster group and answer your questions about the program.  It is a very helpful night for families if you are available. 
    3. STUDENT DO NOT NEED TO BRING ANY INSTRUMENTS TO SCHOOL ON THE FIRST DAY OF BAND, ORCHESTRA OR GUITAR. Please leave their stuff at home.  They will need it on the second class day though. 
    4. Student do need to return their signed syllabus forms, contracts, money by the 2nd class period. Student should bring their sheet music/books to class on the first day of classes. 
    5. I am getting a chance to meet students and families for beginning band and beginning orchestra at your fitting times. I want to offer the following times/dates for my choir, advance band and advance orchestra students/families a chance to meeting with me, pick-up materials, and see the classroom (especially for my 6th graders).  You can come through the front doors of CMS and downstairs to the cafeteria to get to band room.  The times are:
      1. Thursday, July 28: 10:30AM-12:00PM
      2. Friday, July 29: 9:00AM-1:00PM and 4:00PM-6:00PM
      3. Monday, Aug. 1: 9AM-11:30AM
      4. Tuesday, Aug. 2: 9AM-11:30 AM
      5. Wednesday, Aug. 3-3PM-6PM
    6. For guitar students/families, you can come as well but I will not have materials ready for you till the first day of school. But you are more than welcome to stop by and meet with me. 
    7. Advance band, Advance orchestra and choir will have their playing/singing test in August. This material is attached to their music packs.  Beginning band and Beginning orchestra will have their playing tests a little later. 

    I will be updating my website new information as the school year gets closers (including during my trip to NYC).  My new website address is: https://www.matsuk12.us/domain/9225 or you can go to the CMS main page, click on activities, and click on music website.  I will be checking my email in NYC (Aug. 6-13) as well if you need to contact me.  It might take a day or two to get back to you but I will respond.  Other than that, I am looking forward to working with you this fall.  I hope you will have a great day.  Thank you.

    Lastly: I put a video in all the students’ google classes based on the Aug. 22 CMS Music Open House.  We had a small group come out, and I wanted to make sure that I provide the same info to those who could not attend.  I shared a lot of important info at that meeting (included my grading practices, practice charts, weekly grades, concerts info, extra credit, health and instrumental care, policy with bring materials to class, trips, banquet, our booster groups functions and lots more).  To access it you can go to your child’s google classroom to get to it.  Or here is the link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ReO5AZwe8Pwt8AJwDgyM_XWcozVT9dra/view .  I hope it helps you with understanding all the things that go on with this department. 

    I want to thank you for your support and I hope to see you at our performances.  

     

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Lambert
