WOW! What a week. This band has so shown up to work. We have been blessed with great weather and a great opportunity to kick this season off in the right way. Your kids have done a marvelous job and I am so proud of the work they accomplished. Here’s to a great season!
All students must be on the parking lot WITH instrument in hand ready to warm up at 9am.
All parents are having a general meeting in the choir room at 9am as well. All parents are encouraged to attend.
All SENIORS are to be in the courtyard at 8:30am for their poster picture to be taken.
Performance Preview begins at 9:30 on the parking lot. All families are invited to attend.
Clash of the Titans eligibility meeting (required for participation in the program) is at 10:15 in the PAC. Prior to entering the auditorium, you MUST sign in on the chrome books in the commons/fieldhouse (this is not the commitment form, just proving you were there)
AFTER the meeting, you will be given a pen and a form to sign (both parent and student) on the way out of the PAC. After you sign it and drop it in the appropriate indicated spot, you will be free to leave for the day. (This should be 11:30am)
If you do NOT attend this meeting, you will need to call and set up a private screening prior to our first performance (August 22nd), or your student cannot perform with the band that evening.
NEXT THURSDAY, AUGUST 14th
We have our first evening rehearsal for the year. 6:30-8:30pm at school. All members of the band are to be in attendance.
Here, again, is the schedule for the fall. Attendance at each date on this calendar is a part of the grade for our class. Please make sure they are in your calendar now to prevent conflicts. I fully realize there are unavoidable conflicts with sports and I work those out with parents and students when needed. It is crucial students are at these rehearsals/performances for us to achieve the best product with our show.
