First Week Reminders!

Hi all,

 

We’ve had a great week of rehearsals.  The students have really worked hard, and thanks to all for coming to the early rehearsal today.

 

Please remember:

 

1) Our first home football game is tomorrow, August 26.  Call time for all students is 6:00pm since we do not need to get dressed in uniforms.  For tomorrow night our “uniform” will be:  heck week (Beatles) t-shirt, jeans (no capris, shorts, leggings, spandex, etc.) and gym shoes.

2) Freshmen are only required to participate in the pre-game show, but are encouraged to remain to watch the half-time.

3) Parents must pay the usual admission price to get into the stadium.  The varsity game will not begin prior to 7:15pm.  It may start later, but if you are in the stands by 7:00pm you will be there in time for the pre-game show.

4) We are not doing a parking lot clean-up this Sunday.  Athletics do have a clean-up, not band.

5) Saturday, August 26 there is a rehearsal for all band members in grades 10-12 from 1:00-8:00pm.   Freshmen are not to attend.

6) For students that have yet to receive a band t-shirt, they will be distributed during band periods tomorrow.

7) All students need a lyre and flip folder for marching music.  They can be purchased from West music.

 

See you tomorrow,

Dr. M

 

P. S. – The sign-up sheet for all students interested in auditioning for all-state is on the bulletin board in the band area.

 

P. S. S. – Parents, whenever you communicate with us please include the name of your child (first and last).  If is most helpful when we can associate a parent    

                message a student.
