Basketball season is upon us. Make sure you have the dates on your calendar for the games we are playing at. These are required performances in casual uniform, unless otherwise stated. WORK IS NOT AN EXCUSE. Homework can be done during the games, as we play before the games and at half-time. You will be dismissed at the conclusion of the half-time of the varsity boys' games. You will need to be in the stands, ready to play, by 6:10pm for each game.
Dates for basketball games are as follows:
Tuesday, January 16
Tuesday, January 23
Friday, February 2 - Homecoming
Tuesday, February 6 - Senior Night
EVERYONE needs to make sure they have a 1/2" black binder and page protectors. You will be receiving new warm-ups, a new set of scale pages, and chorales that you will need to keep in your binder.
SCALE PLAYING TESTS: You will be receiving a new set of scales required for all HS band students. Everyone will be required to play the designated scales by the date listed. If playing tests are not received by the date listed, YOU WILL RECEIVE A ZERO FOR THAT TEST. You may turn any scale in before the designated date.
