Announcements 6/19/16

1)  Rehearsal this Wednesday!  

2)  Please let me know if you can house 1 of the 2 band camp staff that need a place to stay the full week of band camp.  They live more than an hour away and it would really help them out to have somewhere to stay that week.  They would be at the school from 7 am to around 5 pm every day, and only need a place to stay at night.

Announcements 6/12/16

1)      The second summer rehearsal will be this Wednesday, June 15.  We saw last week just how challenging the music is, so keep practicing.  It is going to sound awesome with a 114 piece band playing it!

2)      I have two Band Camp staff members that need a place to stay during the full week of Band Camp (July 18-22).  They are college students coming in from way out of town and don’t need to drive back and forth every day during that week.  Please let me know if you are willing/able to house one of them during that week.

3)      We talked at the Booster meeting last week about possibly hosting the 2016 WTSBOA Marching Festival this year.  However, it was decided over the weekend during the WTSBOA Executive Board meeting to keep it at Liberty since Mrs. Henning is going to be staying at the school in a semi-administrative position.  This will give continuity to the event instead of it changing places so often in a such a short time.

4)      It’s never too early to look for water on sale for this coming Marching Season.  Some parents mentioned at the meeting that they have seen some good deals such as the Rural King in Martin.

5)      It’s also never too early to look for sponsors for the new trailer we just bought.  Later this week I will be posting the Sponsor form.

Announcements 5/15/16

1)  Percussion who signed up for the Relay for Life event on Friday:  We will meet at the school at 5:15 to get the drums, and then walk down to the park for the event.  We will be done by 6:30.

2)  Band and Guard members who signed up for the NHC Center parade:  We will meet at the NHC at 9:15. Wear your Band T-shirt with khaki bottoms, tennis shoes, no hats.  We will be done between 11 and 11:30.  We will pack instruments in the trailer on Friday.  I need a parent to pull the band trailer to NHC that morning.

3)  Please pay your initial $50 band fee payment this week.  We need to start getting things done at the beginning of the summer, such as writing the drill, getting the percussion music written, and getting the guard work done.   This will help pay for those things.

4)  Thank you students and parents for another fantastic year!  I am proud of all the things we accomplished this year!  We did so much, had so many performances, and you rocked at every single one of them.
