1) Our Spring Concert will be this Thursday at 7 pm in the SGC Gymnasium.  Report time will be 6:30 pm.  Concert Attire.  This is a free concert, so invite your friends and family to a great night of music!  

2)  If I could have some students stay after for a few minutes after school on Thursday to help set up, that would be awesome!

4)  I want to thank everyone for being so welcoming to the 8th grade students and parents at last week's meeting.  I think they got excited for the upcoming year just from the atmosphere that was created at the meeting.  Thank you for being such great ambassadors to your band and school!

Announcements 3/19/17

1)  Jazz Band Rehearsal on Monday

2)  Guard Rehearsals for the Spring Rehearsals will begin on Thursday, not Tuesday of this week.

3)  Butter Braids will be delivered this Wednesday afternoon.  Be prepared to take your orders home to put in the freezer so that don't start thawing out.

4)   Concert Festival this Friday for Band members in class.  We perform at 2:20 at Liberty High School.  Anyone who wants to come and watch us can do so.  It is free admission, but plan to sit toward the back because the judges will be in the middle of the auditorium.  A full schedule will be posted in the next couple of days.

5)  We will be eating at Sparky's on Friday on our way to Concert Festival.  Please bring your $7 for the buffet sometime this week before Friday so that we can pay before we leave the restaurant.

Announcements 3/12/17

1)  Jazz Band rehearsal on Monday.

2)  Color Guard workshop and auditions are this Monday - Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30.  Remember to bring $20 to help pay for the instructor.

3)  We are two weeks away from Concert Festival and we realized on Friday just how much work needs to be done during that time.  Please use your time wisely and practice the sections of the two Concert Festival tunes that need your personal attention.  These are two very difficult songs that will not reach their full potential if you are only picking up your horn during class time.

1)  Drumline Workshop and Audition this Monday through Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 (plan on being done at 5 pm on Wednesday, though).  

2)  Jazz Band will meet this Tuesday because of a Faculty meeting on Monday.

3)  Butter Braid forms will be due this Thursday, so make that final push so that we can be better set up for the end of the year as we will need to pay for Buses for the parades and the cost of the Band Banquet.
