Tuesday, January 31- North Area Band Festival– This is for symphonic band and the Crimson Tribe Jazz Ensemble only.  

6:45AM- We need help setting up 400 chairs, beginning at 6:45AM that morning.  Although this report time is optional, lettering points will be awarded, and we could REALLY use a lot of hands.  

7:40AM- rehearsal begins in the field house.  You will be considered tardy if not ready to play in the field house at that time…so get to school a little early. 

6:30PM in the band room, in full uniform, and warming up.  We will play for 10 minutes and walk down to the field together to “meet and greet” all the 5th-8th grade kids.  Concert begins at 7:00PM, should last around one hour.  EVERYONE is responsible for getting all equipment back to the band room before leaving North.

Friday, February 3- Double header basketball game.  Report time of 5:30.  This is the annual “Hall of Fame Night” so there will be a big crowd.  Please make sure you can attend, or email me at least 2 says ahead of time.  There are only 3 regular season games after this one!

Colorado participants: Your child will receive a very important document this Wednesday, February 1st (concert band on Feb. 2nd).  You will receive your official username and password to submit information regarding health insurance, skiing options, and other important items.  This information is not in electronic form, so the document will be handed out, not emailed.  Please finish this process by this Friday, February 3rd.  It only take a few minutes.

Finally, congrats to all the kids who participated in the musical “Catch Me IF You Can”- the production was amazing!  Everyone, please consider attending at least one of the performances this weekend!
