Eldorado High School Albuquerque, New Mexico


Director - Brad Dubbs

Band Families,

I hope you all had a terrific summer!  We are back at it and very excited for the new school year to start!
Thank you for those who were able to assist with the field clean up this past Saturday. The field was in pretty bad shape but with all the help we had, we took care of it in a fairly short amount of time.
If you are in need of a school instrument and did not get one checked out to you yet, please email me this week so I can check our inventory and ensure that we will have something for everyone.  To our new families, we typically do not have a large amount of small instruments to check out (trumpets, clarinets, flutes).  I will be at the band room Wednesday evening from 4:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Thursday morning from 8 until noon.
At the same time, anyone who did not get show music yet (a lot of folks), can come by during that time and get that.  If you want to wait until next week, you can do that as well.  Pep band music will be handed out the first day of band camp.
You should have received a band handbook by now from our section leaders.  If you did not receive that, we will get you one in the next week or within the first week of camp.  Please let us know if you did not get this.  Also, a copy will be up on our website very soon.
We will have percussion and color guard practice this Wednesday evening at the same times and locations they have been meeting.
Our band potluck is Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. in the EHS courtyard.  Please note information on page 12 of the handbook regarding what each family should bring.  Bring some basketballs, frisbees, etc. too!
Band camp will start at 7:30 a.m. each day.  There was some information posted that said 7:00 a.m.  We apologize about that conflicting information. The only change of those starting times is as follows:
Wednesday August 1, 8:30 a.m. start time
*** Please note, August 2 and 3 will start at 7:30 a.m., not 8:30 a.m.***
If you have any other questions at this time, please let me know.
See you soon!
Mr. Dubbs
