O. Henry Band & Orchestra Instrument Selection for Future Mustangs

O. Henry Band & Orchestra Instrument Selection for Future Mustangs

 

The O. Henry Middle School Band and Orchestra cordially invite all 5th graders to join our award-winning fine arts program. It is already time to start choosing electives for 2016-2017.  On Wednesday, January 27, from 4:30 – 6:30 PM, students will have the opportunity to try string, woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments under the supervision of music specialists. This is a come-and-go-as-you-please event and no registration is required.  The entire selection process takes 20- 25 minutes. Afterwards, students will then be scheduled into the appropriate music class for next school year.

No previous music training is necessary and school owned instruments are available for most sections. Students who already have one year of band or orchestra instruction do not need to attend this session. If you are unable to attend this session, please contact one of the directors to set up an individual appointment. Mr. Pinkney is the Band Director and can be reached at sedric.pinkney@austinisd.org. Mr. Solis is the Orchestra Director and can be reached at fidencio.solis@austinisd.org.

 

Changes to Board Policy Regarding Transfers

The changes impact the admission of priority transfers into frozen schools (i.e., schools with no available space).  There are three types of priority transfers:  majority-to-minority, sibling, and tracking.

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, in an effort to relieve overcrowding, majority to minority transfers will only be accepted at campuses where space is available.  Space is not available at frozen campuses.   Superintendent Paul Cruz will announce the list of frozen campuses for the 2016-2017 school year on December 14, 2015.

Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, in a continuing effort to relieve overcrowding, in addition to the majority to minority priority transfers, sibling and tracking transfers will also only be accepted at campuses with space available.  An announcement of which schools will not have space in 2017-2018 (i.e., frozen), will be made in December 2016.
