And just like that, it is the week of Crown Jewel! This season has been full of many ups and downs, and seems to have FLOWN by…. Either way, there is one thing I am absolutely certain of. You are an amazing band. Things happen that we can’t control, and that is life. The major concept to remember - it’s how you respond that makes the true difference.
We can March and play 90% of our show, and there are many great moments (some of the best I’ve ever heard from the band in my time at pslhs). With the time we have this week. I KNOW we can make a full AMAZING run through happen by Saturday. Now, let’s put eyes forward, and have the most focused week we can!
There are a few changes, so please read carefully! It will be a busy month ahead. Welcome to bandtober!
- A notable change is THIS Tuesday and Thursdays practices will be ending at 6pm. This will allow us to make up 2 hours of lost time. Please plan to make adjustments to be there the full rehearsal. Thanks so much for all the flexibility from parents and students! In the end of the season, it will all be worth it.
- There will be an optional woodwind sectional tomorrow from 1:45-3:00pm to work on the runs at 194. They’re getting better! This change is because there’s no school on Wednesday.
- There is no school Wednesday due to a fall holiday.
- Friday is a Home football game! Call time will be 5pm in the band room! A detailed schedule, including what you will need, will be published tomorrow.
- Saturday is Crown Jewel!! Our performance time is 4:00pm at Vero Beach High School! Band students will have a call time of 10:30 for a continuity warm up. A detailed schedule including all information you need to know for the day will be published tomorrow morning. Students will be obligated from 10:30am to about 10pm. This is a huge competition day!
- Attached to the schedule for the home football game, and crown jewel, will be links for parent volunteers to sign up for chaperoning, so be on the look out for that if you are interested! We would like to have 10 chaperones for each of these events. Thanks so much to all who have chaperoned so far this year! Your help is greatly appreciated and crucial to our bands success!
- Show shirts and polos are all in, if you are a parent who purchased either or both for $15, they are ready to be distributed to your students. We have some extra show shirts and band polos for $15 each if anyone else would like to purchase one! Please reach out to me if you have questions!
I can’t wait for this week band, and for you to feel the results of your hard work. No matter what happens, I am so proud of you, and you are one heck of a band. Let’s do this!! Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
