Schedule for the coming week:
Mon (8/5): Rehearsal 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM
>We will be taking some group pictures for the fall sports program... students need to wear a white shirt and black shorts
>Seniors report at 3:30 PM for "seniors only group photos"
Thurs (8/8) Rehearsal 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
During the school week students need to dress appropriately (or bring a suitable change of clothes) for outside rehearsals on Mon, Tues and Thurs. Students are always responsible for having water and sunscreen at outdoor practices. The 4th block course syllabus will go home this Wednesday. I would like the last page signed and returned by Friday.
Lastly, I will begin putting in grades this Friday. The first fall semester grade will be a check off of the national anthem. A significant majority of the performers with national anthem responsibilities have already passed all of this or most of this off from memory. If you see an IC grade on Friday that surprises you please remember that students can take, and retake, this playing exam as many times as they need before the end of the first nine weeks (as with all playing tests) for full credit. The band staff and I expect all students to continue to attempt playing exams until the music is learned. Please check with your student to make sure that they are on top of this assignment as we will need to move on to other literature in order to prepare for football games, contests and concerts.
