     There will be no more instrument/supply pickup times. If your child still has an instrument or supplies at the band hall, contact me by any of the means below.

    SUMMER BAND

    Dates for summer band will be announced soon. We will also send out mailouts with this info. Keep an eye on all Brownwood Band webpages as well as our Facebook page.

    COLOR GUARD 

    Color guard camp and tryouts will be July 20-22.  All those interested in being in color guard are required to be at this camp/tryout.

    Current (2019-2020) color guard members that wish to continue to be in color guard will not need to tryout. Only those new to color guard will have to tryout.  More information about this camp and tryouts will come as soon as possible.

    All COVID 19 guidelines will be followed. Color guard camp & tryouts are subject to change due to COVID 19 – but dates will not be any earlier than July 20, 2020. 

    Anyone who plans to be a part of the 2020-2021 color guard should email Mrs. Lambert as soon as possible at lesley.lambert@brownwoodisd.org

    GOOGLE CLASSROOM INSTRUCTIONS

    Through this time of off-campus learning, everyone in 7th and 8th grade band will be using Google Classroom. While most students have experience with this platform, we understand it may be new to some. Students may access Google Classroom with their school-issued email using a smart phone, tablet, computer, or even a gaming console. *note* while students may be able to sign into Google Classroom with any email, they must use their school email, or they will not have access to any of our shared documents! If you aren't sure what email to use:

    For 7th graders - first.last25@stu.brownwoodisd.org
    For 8th graders - first.last24@stu.brownwoodisd.org

    Your password should be:
    bwd###### (bwd followed by your 6-digit ID number).

    NOTE: Every student has received an invitation to the class. It is in their school email inbox. If they connot find it, follow instructions below.

    Once you are on Google Classroom (if on your phone, it will be helpful to download the free app!), hit the button to join a class. It should then ask for a class code.

    The class code for both 7th and 8th grade band students is ptlyagv

    Once you are in Google Classroom, you will see all of our assignments. We have had 1 or 2 each week, so if you have not done them, you need to go back and catch up on them. 

     

    Greetings from Mr. and Mrs. Yeats!

    First of all, we hope that everyone is doing well in this somewhat confusing time. Mrs. Yeats and I are fine, and so is our recently born daughter. 

    If you know that you will need a paper assignment each week, please contact me!

    At the beginning of each week, the assignments will be posted, and the assignments will be due by the end of the next coming Sunday.

    Virtual "Office Hours" will be Monday through Friday between 9am and noon. During that time, you may reach me (Mr. Yeats) at 940-867-6085 . This can be used by both parents and students who have any class-related questions or concerns. Please be patient if I am not able to answer, as we are dealing with a baby in our house! Outside of those hours, please keep correspondence to my email, ethan.yeats@brownwoodisd.org. 

    Thank you for working with us in this peculiar time. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at ethan.yeats@brownwoodisd.org, or during my office hours at 940-867-6085. Parents should periodically check this web page for updates. 

    Thank you, and be safe out there!

    Mr. and Mrs. Yeats
