Good afternoon Titans!
I will be sending this regular update email every Friday during the marching season (through October), so be looking for it each Friday so you are up to date with the coming week, future events, and updates.
Clash of the Titans
This is an annual event that takes place tomorrow morning, August 8th. EVERY student in band, choir, orchestra, or any sport or other spirit squad MUST attend. At this event, students and a parent will be given all of the policies and rules one must follow to be eligible to participate in a sport or activity at LSW. This is a STATE requirement by MSHSAA.
The meeting is in the PAC at West and starts at 10:30am sharp. After a short meeting, you will proceed to the band room to sign the "commitment form". If you’d like, there is a pancake breakfast preceding the meeting.
IF you cannot make the meeting (the student and ONE parent), you will need to make arrangements through Monte Seabaugh in the activities office to come to school during business hours to take care of this requirement.
THIS MUST BE ACCOMPLISHED BEFORE AUGUST 28 (our first performance), or your student will not perform.
Rehearsal Tuesday, August 11
Rehearsal (like ALL of them) begins at 6:30pm and ends at 8:30pm. This week, there were SEVERAL late students. In the future, there will be consequences for being late, so please encourage your son/daughter to be 5-10 minutes early to all rehearsals/call times. I always preach to them that "on time is late"! All students should come to each evening rehearsal, unless otherwise noted, in their "section shirts" (please see section leader if you don’t have one)
Rehearsal Thursday, August 13
Please have students arrive early if possible. The goal is to be snapping the picture in FULL uniform before 6:45pm. Please have all students arrive in their "uniform shirt" (if you ordered one last week, it will not be in, so please wear a black tee shirt). All drumline students and drum majors will need to bring their black marching shoes as well.
Again, rehearsal is from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
This is a shirt that we create every year in the theme of our competition show. This year’s theme is SHINE. The Music Parents organization is ordering shirts for parents to wear in support of the band this year. You may have already placed an order at the registration table, but if you didn’t, and you would like to order one for $10, you need to email Mary Grigsby with sizing information no later than Thursday, August 13th at 11pm. You can pay upon picking them up when they come in. Mary’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and have a GREAT weekend!
