We have made a few changes in the City High band calendar, so I have attached the new, updated one below.
Due a lack of entries, the Little Hawk Invitational for 2016 has been cancelled. Our entry numbers have been going down for the past few years, and at this point the invitational is no longer a viable option for our fund raising purposes. I do want to thank all of the parents that have been working already to make the contest go.
We have also decided that since Saturday, October 8 falls on a long weekend, and the homecoming dance is scheduled for that day, we will not be participating in the Iowa State Marching Band Contest. We will instead participate in the Bands Across the Prairie contest, held on October 1. The time and details for that event will follow. We do still have the homecoming football performance on Friday, October 7.
We are aware that many of you have set your personal/family calendars based, at least in part, on ours, and changes may not be easy. When we look what we believe is best for the students in our program, these changes reflect the most prudent actions to take.
A couple of reminders:
1) We have an early morning, 7:45am rehearsal tomorrow, September 8 on the soccer field. This will be our only opportunity to practice with the 8th grade band from Southeast.
2) Our call time for the game on Friday night is 5:30pm, we will be in full uniform.
3) Parking lot clean-up is Sunday at 7:00am. Same location.
4) Students who were unable to attend the jazz band meeting today during advisory should see Mr. Arp for materials and information.
