Reminders from Mr. Souder
– Please don’t forget the 2017 Spring Trip Meeting this evening, Tuesday August 30th at 7:00 PM in the band room. I will cover the specifics of the trip itinerary, costs, sign-up process, and a few eligibility stipulations at the meeting. This is going to be an awesome trip to Universal Studios, unlike any the students could have otherwise!
– NEXT Tuesday, September 6th (day after Labor Day), there is a “Teacher Workday” (no school for students) but the band (like other sports activities) will be having our regular, very necessary rehearsal. As you know, we will be out for Labor Day – AND – I have heard but not confirmed yet that our away game to Huntsville next week may be on Thursday, Sept 8th instead of Friday the 9th. I will inform you as soon as I confirm.
***Nevertheless, rehearsal next Tuesday, September 6th, instead of being our regular hot 2-6 time, will be 4-8 PM instead, so as to give the students as much of the day off as possible and also to avoid as much of the mid-day heat as possible. Please make plans now if a ride is needed and of course let me know if you/your student has trouble securing a ride to the school that afternoon. Students were of course informed of this in class yesterday.
Let’s hope that we won’t get any more rain (or electronic difficulties) so that the band can finally perform a normal show, as rehearsed, for a first time this Friday at home against Sparkman!
Finally, we still are still looking for much-needed equipment dads and moms! Equipment Crew shirts are on the way for equipment committee members!
