Band Communications Update

Want to keep up to date on the latest events, notifications and band updates? We have created a new information sharing site on Google plus. Friendsofecksteinband@gmail.com. You can use this even if you are not a Google user. This new site will allow you access to the events calendar, meeting minutes, information sheets, permission slips and more. If there are last minute updates or messages, this is the only way we can get them to you.

Upon joining the group please indicate which band/group your child belongs to and we will add you to that "circle"-- this way you won't have to receive tons of emails that might not pertain to you.

If you are already a Google or Google+ user, click here.

If not, then please email Heather Brammer and say that you'd like to be added to the group and which "circle" your child belongs in, for example "Intermediate Band".
