First week of school is here! Below are a few reminders for this very important week!
#1. Normal rehearsals start-up this week. Tuesday is 6-9 & Thursday is until 6pm. Students should GO HOME ON TUESDAYS if at all possible and return @ 6pm for rehearsal. Students who stay will be required to remain in the band room from 4pm – 6pm. NO REHEARSAL ON MONDAY 8/19!
#2. The Attractions Fundraiser started last week! Books are $20. Student makes $7 per book. Turn in book sales on Tuesday evenings for prizes! FINAL TURN IN – TUESDAY, AUGUST 21st!
#3. The Clover Band will be playing at the “Cougar Burn” on Thursday, August 22nd! Call time: 7:30pm!
#4. First football game vs York is THIS Friday, August 23rd. Full Band! MORE DETAILS LATER THIS WEEK!
#5. We will have our 1st Mini-Camp THIS coming SATURDAY from 9-5. This is a mandatory event and has been on the calendar so please make sure you’ve made plans to attend. The Band Boosters will be feeding you lunch!
#6. WE NEED HELP FOR THE PANTHER PRE-SEASON GAMES on August 29th! See CHARMS to sign-up!
#7. There are many students who are not current on their band fees. At this point all students should have paid at least $325 of their band fees. The next band fee payment is due on September 15th!
#8. Please be reminded that NO practice/performance is considered optional. It is not appropriate to miss any rehearsal. The allowed excused absences are listed in the handbook. In the event that you cannot attend a rehearsal /performance it is the STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY to inform Mr. Gulledge, Mrs. Loftis or Mr. Hall. Students who have unexcused absences face the following consequences: grade reduction, detention, and even removal from the program. We have no “bench” to pull from. If you are absent the entire group suffers!
