We still have a few of students who have not paid for their t-shirts. The cost is $17 and is due ASAP. If you are not sure whether or not your child has paid, please contact me.
All freshmen and a few upperclassmen have ordered band shoes. The cost for those is $25. Shoes need to be paid for next week.
Eligibility and Grades:
It is important for students to keep their grades up in all classes. I am already checking grades for students. PLEASE make sure you are also checking on your child's grades and progress in classes. You have the ability to do this by logging on to Information Now by clicking here. If you do not have a user name and password, please contact the HS office and they can get you set up.
Students have two more playing tests coming up. All playing tests must be received by 8:00 p.m. on the date indicated. If it is received after that time, students will incur a late penalty on their test grade. I have told the students not to wait until the last minute as technology doesn't always work as fast as we want it to. They have had plenty of notice to get each week's test completed.
*Tuesday, September 8th - Corazon
*Monday, September 14th - Malaguena
Failure to turn in playing tests may result in a student not being allowed to perform during that week's performance and possibly future performances. Failure to turn in playing tests and being ineligible in other classes will result in students either losing their spot in the contest show or being placed in an alternate spot.
This Friday, September 4: Home game!
*Casual uniforms: band shirts, blue jeans, tennis shoes
6:15 - Call time at the band room
Parents: If you are picking up your child after the game is finished and you are not at the game, please make sure you arrive at the band room in a timely manner. We have had several instances since the start of band camp where parents haven't picked up their child until 45 minutes after the scheduled activity.
Starting next week, we will be traveling to AWAY football games. These dates were given out last spring with a note stating as long as transportation was worked out, we would be attending these games. Also, notices were sent out over the summer stating that we would be traveling to away games. These games are also mandatory performances. We are planning to march our contest show at all away games, so it is imperative everyone is there. For each away game, the time we leave will vary, but students are expected to be there ready to perform. If you have not done so already, please get these dates on your calendar!
