Sedro-Woolley Beginning Band Schedule - Updated for the 2021/22 school year

    Band class is 1st Period at CMS, approximately 7:40 to 8:30 (8:40 to 9:30 Wednesdays).

    Students can ride with the middle school students to CMS.

    The school district provides transportation back to their elementary school after class. You’ll have to contact transportation (855-3504) to figure out what time the earlier bus comes by your house if your child will be riding the bus to band in the morning.


    Mary Purcell, Central, and Evergreen students have class Monday and Thursdays

    Big Lake, Clear Lake, Samish, and Lyman students have class Tuesday and Fridays

    Wednesdays are sectional days, so students come depending on what instrument they play.


    Attendance: five unexcused absences may prevent your student from attending the Wild Waves Festival at the end of the year. Email or message Mr. Brumbaugh on Remind and communicate absences.


    Our start up lessons are a little different than our normal schedule. I need to see all of one type of instrument at a time. See below for the schedule.
