This is Parker Cox, the band director at Tyro Middle. I was hoping to have the chance to meet all of you this year in my recruiting, but given we won't be back in school again until at least the fall, that unfortunately won't happen. Regardless, I want to thank all of you for helping give these kids an awesome foundation in music. Kendall (the high school director) and I appreciate what you do more than I can describe.
That being said, I have a favor to ask of you. I have created a Google Form based around a template James gave us to help with "distance recruiting." If you guys could share with your 5th graders (really, specifically their parents) or let me know if there would be a better way to distribute this info, please let me know. I'm hoping to net as many as I possibly can in spite of not being able to get in front of them to dispel some of the constantly perpetuated silliness I always seem to get due to parents' lack of understanding (yes, you can do sports and band, yes, boys can play woodwind instruments, etc...)
If you have any ideas on how to help out with this process, I'm all ears. These are crazy times as we're all seeing daily, so the more continuity I can get leading into next year, the better off we'll be. Thank you SO much for your help and I look forward to working with your 5th graders next year!
