News this week:
If you haven’t yet paid your band fee, please be sure to do so as soon as possible. You may check in Charms to see your balance. School district receipts will be passed out this week. Please make sure you’ve turned in your discount card fundraiser money if you haven’t already. We are currently selling program ads for concert programs. Students will be given that information this week.

Show shirts will be passed out on Thursday after marching practice in the band room.
Our first game is this Friday! We will be wearing our show shirts, dark shorts (fingertip length), white shoes (what we wear to practice), and socks. There will be supervision after school all the way until report time. Students who are staying until report time should bring something to eat.
All students must have their red water coolers (already filled) for the game. Please review the band handbook for information regarding inspections prior to the game. Students who are playing silver instruments need to make sure their instruments are shined prior to inspection. Wright’s Silver Cream (available at Wal-Mart and other stores) is safe to use on instruments. Please plan to have your instruments cleaned prior to inspection. ALL FORMS (INCLUDING THE SYLLABUS) MUST BE TURNED IN BY THE END OF THE DAY ON 9/1 IN ORDER FOR STUDENTS TO PERFORM FRIDAY NIGHT. FORMS ARE LOCATED IN CHARMS AND ARE AVAILABLE IN THE BAND ROOM.
The itinerary for 9/2 is as follows. Please note that times after kick-off are approximate times due to factors outside of the band’s control (i.e. weather and how fast the clock runs at the game).
