Dear War Eagle Band!!!!
Standing Ovation for a fantastic Band Banquet! Thank you to Mrs. Amy Miller and the Banquet committee for putting such a lovely evening together. Everyone looked fabulous, the slide show video was super (thanks Kristen Mercer and Dani Dewey) the officer presentations and senior video was AWESOME (thank you Nick Kaitschuck and seniors!!!!). It was a fun evening! Thank you!
#1- We have one more Flag Holiday to take care of this season…and that is Memorial Day weekend. We can use as many volunteers as possible. However, it is the Trumpet and Color Guard sections who must work this holiday. Sign up sheets for driver and those needing a ride are in the band hall and color guard room. Be sure and sign up. Anyone else who can help…we would love to have you!
#2- Anyone auditioning for or running for a position on the 2016-2017 Student Leadership Team will record their video spot for voting tomorrow in class. Remember to come prepared and your video spot may not be longer than 90 seconds.
#3- Band Registration and Gear ordering for next season. We are trying something new this year for our upperclassmen. Instead of asking you to come to a “registration evening” during June camp, we will pass out the registration and gear order forms to all the students on Thursday. Anyone who needs to order gear and pay their first Fair Share payment can just bring the completed form into the band office before the end of school. Should anyone feel that they need to try on gear for sizing may come to any evening of the Freshman Registration nights 6/7, 6/8 or 6/9. Be looking for the registration forms this week!
