STUDENTS- Please bring proper shoes for marching band class tomorrow. We will go outside during 4th period.
Mr. Bass will be posting materials for jazz band auditions this week. If you are interested be sure to get them. Auditions will be held the following week.
We have our first away game on THURSDAY of this week. Details for the trip are below. Remember, students need to attend 2 of 3 away games in a nine week period. This grading period is a little weird because we didn’t go to the first away game, and we are having a required rehearsal in place of the next away game. What that means is this weeks away game will be just for those who want to come. 🙂 Please fill out this survey if you plan to come so that I know how many buses to get. For the parents of new members, you should know that the students really enjoy the away games and have a great time. Students need to wear their band t-shirt, tennis shoes, and jean pants. No shorts. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/N7HYG3H
Once I put out our schedule for the year I try my best to stick to it and not make any additions. We are hoping to do something very special at our last home game and would need to bring in some new staff to teach the band the show on Sunday, October 23rd. If everyone could please fill out this very short survey to let me know if you’re available, I would greatly appreciate it. The rehearsal would be from 1pm-6pm. We will learn a new halftime show that is very different from anything we have ever done. This is something that our community will love and I really hope we can make it work. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NLZPBH5
Sectionals will begin next week (Sept 6). Each section will have one sectional a week before or after school. Students will work with their section leader to choose a time and a day that works for everyone. Please remember that we will be out on Monday, Sept 5 for Labor Day when scheduling sectionals.
Reminder: There is a required rehearsal on Friday, September 9th in place of the away game. I am hoping to do 4pm-9pm to get the rest of the opener on the field, but it will depend on the other sports teams. We may only be able to do 6pm-9pm. I will let you know asap. If we do 4-9 I will make sure the kids are fed.
If anyone sews, we are going to need quite a few extra hands with some upcoming projects. Please let me know if you’re able to help and we will work out a time to get together. Our guard parents will be working on 4 large parachutes, and Audra Holden has designed an AWESOME insert for our uniforms that will have to be sewn into 120 custom sized uniform inserts. 🙂
