8th Grade Reminders



If you haven’t yet spoken to me or return the following forms/information please do so ASAP!!!!


ZHS Graduation: I still need to know if you plan to help the ZHS Band with their upcoming graduation ceremony. If so, please let me know so I can get you the music for the performance. For more details, refer to the flyer that went home a few weeks ago.


ZHS Band Trip: I’m still waiting on trip survey’s for next year’s band trip. Remember, your options are to either attend a trip to Gatlinburg, TN or a trip to Nassau in the Bahamas. Forms that aren’t returned are assumed to be students not wanting to attend either trip. If you need a new form, see Mr. Schmidt.
