Hello band family, Happy Sunday! I hope you have all been having a restful weekend! I wanted to say thanks again to all the band parents who helped us out at Friday’s rehearsal! This activity has so many moving parts, so the help is vital and definitely appreciated!
Also, band, we are getting work done! This is the longest opener our band has ever performed (for reference, fallen silent, our second longest opener, was 94 measures, and 16 sets of drill. This one is 24 sets, and 120 measures.), and we are on track to have this show done by September 24th if all goes according to plan! let’s keep going and, if we do superior work, we WILL BE a superior band.
We have a lighter week this week, here’s what to expect.
- Since I forgot to ask for the fundraiser collection on Friday, final envelops and payments will be due on Monday! Please bring them by the band room either before school, during class, lunch, or after school!
- We will have normally scheduled marching rehearsals on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30-5pm. Please remember to communicate if you would like to have an excused absence. Any student that misses with no communication will be marked as an unexcused absence. We are a team with NO second string. We need to be there for each other unless you are excused! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
- Wednesday is an early release day! There will be no pep rally at village green elementary, we will plan this for a later date that works best for both schools, There is a chance that I will be absent from school this day. If so, I will let you know and plans will be given to leadership members for classes.
- There is no game or rehearsal this Friday! Enjoy your Friday night.
- If we lose much more rehearsal time to lightning or weather delays, a continuity rehearsal will be added on September 9th, from 6-9pm. A decision will be made by this Friday, depending on how this week goes. This will give students and parents 1 full week to plan to attend rehearsal.
- A vast majority of the band has completed pass off #1! Thank you all for your care and attention to this matter. If you have not passed off, get this done ASAP! Pass if 2 will be on September 9th. Measures 76-177.
- If you still need to play band fees, you can now do this by debit or credit card at the following link! Due to a lack of funding from the state, band fees help us operate as we should to have a successful year. Fees can also be paid by cash or check made out to pslhs band. Here is the link!
- Ms. Telese has notified teachers that some students are planning an intentional dress code violation tomorrow. She has informed us that students who participate and intentionally come out of dress code will lose after school privileges for a while. Please do NOT participate. This will negatively effect you and the band tremendously if you cannot attend rehearsals or games.
- Thanks to everyone for all their efforts! If there is anything I can do to assist you, please feel free to reach out via email: email@example.com.
