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.
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,
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
