Also, if there are any block 7 JV band students that can show up between 6:30-8:30PM in the band room, we would like to get many of you fitted for your band uniform.  These uniforms will be worn at home football games, as well as in Florida.

Wednesday- NO early rehearsal due to early call times on Monday AND Tuesday. Varsity winds will start on the field at 7:40am.


Thursday- two thing:

-Fall Sports Kickoff performance.  Report time of 7:00 in stadium, performance at 7:10. Should last 10 minutes playing pep-band tunes, and we’re done!  This is an optional performance, but you will receive lettering points.
