Hey Marching Band,
just a reminder that Tuesday’s schedule was adjusted. Sectionals will begin at 4:00. This will apply for all Tuesdays for the remainder of the season.
For an updated calendar please click here: MB Calendar 2013 Update July 28.
Because of the change, we will be accepting excuse notes (only for these Tuesday sectional changes) for one week. Notes will be due on Sunday August 4th.
I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July! Next week is a big week for us. ROOKIE WEEK!!! Just a few reminders below:
- Rookies be here by 1:50 pm
- Bring lots of water (no juice or soda)
- Label your WATER JUGS with your full name
- Bring sun protection (hats, sunglasses, sunscreen)
- Wear comfortable clothing (athletic shoes, no jeans, etc.)
This week is a very important week so do everything you can to come in the best shape you can and with a positive attitude.
Reminder to all section leaders, officers, and helpers: we will be meeting at 1:00 pm to set up and get ready.
It was such a pleasure to see all of you at your first round of sectionals (or for the percussion and color guard the past few weeks). This is going to be a great season and we are all so excited to see what amazing things you will be able to accomplish.
Just a few reminders. Uniform fitting for pep band and other odd’s and ends will be held on the following dates. Please plan to stay approximately half an hour after rehearsals to allow for fitting. Don’t forget to say “thank you” to the uniform parents as well. If you are unable to make a fitting, please contact me ASAP!
- Flutes and Saxes – June 19
- Percussion/Guard – June 20
- Clarinets – June 24
- All Brass – June 26
Also, don’t forget to turn in your instrument contracts. If you don’t turn them in on time, you will NOT be able to use a school instrument and you must provide your own. Contracts are due on the following:
- Flutes and All Brass – Monday, June 17
- Clarinets and Saxes – Wednesday, June 19
Thank you everyone. Let’s have a great season! 😀
