Hello everyone, welcome back!
As we’re getting back in the swing of things, a few announcements. First of all, please use the revised summer/fall band calendar. We’re subtracting a parade, adding a football game and flipping a Monday night rehearsal. I will send hardcopies home in ORANGE color. DO NOT use the green colored calendar sent out in the spring. 😊
Varsity band (block 1) drumline (block 2) and JV band (block 7) will NOT play on Friday, Aug. 13th, but feel free to bring your instrument to school. We will make sure everyone has a band locker. Blocks 1,2 and 7 band classes will play beginning Monday, Aug. 16th.
Both jazz band classes will play the first day of school, Friday, Aug. 13th. Please have your instrument at school for jazz band!
As stated on the band calendar, our first Monday night rehearsal is next Monday, August 16, from 6:30 to 8:30PM, on the stadium field.
Our first early morning rehearsal for varsity band is Wednesday, August 18 beginning at 6:45AM on the stadium field. From that point on, we will have early rehearsals on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings beginning at 6:45AM, unless otherwise stated. Early rehearsals will last through Friday, October 29.
Permission packets will be handed out next week. Your first 50 point assignment is to have them turned in by next Friday, August 20.
If anyone is interested in helping with the elementary school instrument demonstration nights, please use this link below. We’re looking for help on Tuesday, August 31, and Thursday, September 2. These are optional opportunities, but students who can help learn lettering points.
Please continue to get rest and pace yourself as we finally began a somewhat normal school year. Mrs. Fillingham and I are really excited about the upcoming year in band, we’ll see you soon!
