This Week in Band 09/11/2016

Dear War Eagle Band,   Thanks to ALL our awesome parent volunteers at last Thursdays game night.   We appreciate all you do for us and especially on a Thursday Game!   The weather (lightening alerts) have been playing havoc on our rehearsal schedule.  Anytime there is lightening within 10 miles of the school we are not allowed to practice outside until there is an “all clear” notification given.  Every rehearsal last week was interrupted by these alerts.   We appreciate the patience of the students and especially our parents with the rescheduling of some of our rehearsal times.   We are at the mercy of Mother Nature and hopefully we will have better weather this week.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

#1-  Open House is Monday night and while we would love to see you…the band is in full swing and you have been receiving up to date information about our class.   You are welcome to come by the band hall but let us encourage you to spend the majority of your time with your child’s core class teachers.  We have a booster meeting on Tuesday and a lot more specific information will be given out at that meeting.

 

#2-  First Band Booster Meeting of the year.  Tuesday, September 13 at 7pm in the band hall.   We will also be asking for volunteers to help with the washing of our marching uniforms.

 

#3-  Fridays Game is Parent Night for our Seniors and their parents.   The band seniors will be dismissed to go over to the stadium right after they receive their pre-game meal.   Seniors will need to provide their own transportation over to the stadium.  They will need to meet you at 5:15 at Woodforest.   Seniors will be able to ride the bus back from the game if necessary in order to turn in uniforms.

 

#4- Saturday if Flag Pick up and Return Day.   So Flutes, Percussion and anyone else who put flags out on routes..must pick up and return the Flags from the same routes this Saturday.

 

#5- Progress Reports go home this week.   Please stay on top of your grades.   The six weeks ends in just 3 weeks and eligibility will go into affect.   All band students must be passing ALL of their classes at the 6 weeks in order to be eligible for the rest of marching season.
