A special thanks to all the parents who helped last Monday, as well as Friday’s Homecoming game and yesterday’s Olathe festival.  You are the best!
Monday, Oct. 9- 6:45AM- early rehearsal for varsity band.  Also on same night, 6:30PM varsity rehearsal.
Wed.- Although this is the National Day of Testing, North is still running an assembly schedule day of school, so we will still rehearse at 6:45AM through block 1 (and 2 for percussion).  Of course, band students are excused from rehearsal if you are taking the test.  I’ll get a list from Dr. Brogdon of band students who are testing.
Friday- although there is no school, as per your summer/fall band calendar, we have a graded rehearsal from 9AM-noon (3X normal points).  We will also cover last minute SM North Marching Invitational stuff.
Sat- SM North Marching Invitational. Student information will be covered in class, parents should sign up for jobs on the signup genius (see below).  Everyone should report to the legacy patio 20 minutes prior to any job they have so we know who is here to help.  The legacy patio is the brick patio outside of the pool area.
Remember that NO ONE should park on campus on Saturday, including myself and other volunteers.  I’m parking on 61st street behind the stadium.  Parents, here’s the link to volunteer:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044CACAB2FA2FA7-38269464-2023#/
Finally, remember that we should greet EVERYONE with those 5 wonderful words, ”Welcome to Shawnee Mission North!”
Looking forward to another fun and important week in band!
Mr. Reed
