Good morning band family! Happy first day of school eve! Below you will find the first weekly news update of the new school year. You can expect these every Sunday before the new week! Please read carefully so you’ll always know what’s going on!
- We will have marching rehearsal on Tuesday and Thursday this week (and every week). These will be from 2:30pm-5:00pm. You will need to bring a change of athletic clothes to school, and have your water jug for ALL rehearsals. Please wear your show shirt and show shorts to Tuesday’s rehearsal! We will be taking pictures! Please keep in mind that these rehearsals are MANDATORY. They are a part of your grade. If you have to miss, it will have to be approved 1 week in advance via an absentee form found in the band room.
- Our first home football game of the season is Friday! Students will have a call time of 5:00pm in uniform. You may stay after school until the game. I will be making a separate post detailing all the protocol for home football games soon. Please be on the look out! The game starts at 7pm and is usually over by 9:30-10:00pm depending on how many penalties there are.
- Please remember that the Fall Sports Program Ad sale deadline is August 23rd! Get out there and help the band raise some funds! Also remember that 20% of all ad sales will go into your band account!
- There will be an Atlanta Band trip commitment payment of $40 due to me by August 30th! You MUST turn this in if you would like to go to Atlanta in April. This payment is telling me that you are committed to going. We need at least 40 people total going (this includes chaperones) in order for the trip to be worth it. If we do not have 40 people, the commitment payment will be refunded and we will not be going on the trip. Please consider going! Band trips create tons of memories, and remember you can always help yourself go by fundraising!!
- Our first Pass off is due by August 23rd! These will be gone over in detail on the first day of classes Monday and Tuesday! Pass offs are test grades and are important for our success! Don’t sweat, they are easy!!
- Please stay up to date on all the band events on our band calendar! That can be found on this website on the calendar tab!
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions!
