Cario Middle School Bands
With an enrollment of more than 325 students this year, Cario Bands is one of the largest middle school bands in South Carolina. Our performance groups include the 6th Grade Beginner band, 7th and 8th grade Concert Bands, the 7th Symphonic Band, the Wind Ensemble, and the Jazz Band. Under the direction of Mr. Jeff Scott and assisted by Mrs. Susan DuPuis, our students have consistently achieved superior ratings and results at local, regional, state-wide, and national competitions. This year, we welcome Mrs. Emily Wilkinson as assistant director.
[08/20/13] Welcome 6th graders! And welcome to EVERYONE tomorrow for your first full day at Cario. Remember to get your band packets turned back in (you got them at Fact & Fee Day) ... it's a really easy way to get your FIRST A!!
[08/13/13] Well Cario Bands, another school year is almost here and I have to say, WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOUR BRIGHT SHINING FACES! Get fact and fee out of the way ... of course, stop at the BAND booth to get all your goodies! See you soon!
[06/07/13] I'm seeing the sun break through! If you can come ... come to the Cario Bands Beach Bash tomorrow. Sun, Fun, Friends and Food. We will be there from 11 - 2! Hope to see your there!
One more end of the year sentiment ... for those who are too young to know or remember - Google it.
In an ending song, Carol Burnett would sing the following:
I'm so glad we had this time together,
Just to have a laugh, or sing a song.
Seems we just get started and before you Know it
Comes the time we have to say, "So long".
Have a wonderful summer :)
[06/06/13] So sadly ... The Beach Bash has been rescheduled. For those that will not be able to attend because of the date change - We are so sorry & will miss you ... but you've heard the old saying, You can't argue with mother nature ... For those that can attend ... we will be there Saturday from 11:00 - 3:00 - Moe's burritos and tacos being served at 11:30.
[06/05/13] Well ... hopefully the rain holds off tomorrow because we need 1 more reason to get together before you OFFICIALLY begin your summer vacation ... of course I'm talking Beach Bash. Mr. Scott says it's NEVER rained on the Beach Bash so I'm believing for sunshine tomorrow :)
[06/03/13] Wow! We've made it to the last week of school. The band played today at Cario Canivale. We have end of the year parties and of course The Beach Bash. Lots of end of the year memories.
