Welcome back everyone from a super cold weekend! Hope everyone was warm and stayed safe during the crazy cold weather. We had to make some changes to our schedule due to the school closure.
CONTEST PARENT SIGNATURE:
Students were sent home with a April Contest Notification letter. We are asking all parents to read the letter, sign it, and return it to us. It is a notification explaining what will be happening in the week of April when there is a spring break - it will conflict with Concert and Sightreading contest, the biggest event we have of the year. We will explain more as the time gets closer. Thank you to those who have already signed and returned. If you have not already signed it, please return it with your child this week.
For this week, the upcoming events are as follows:
UIL SOLO AND ENSEMBLE:
Congratulations to all of our band students who performed for UIL Solo and Ensemble Contest on Saturday! We are proud of you all!
The following students earned a Divison 1 at UIL Solo and Ensemble contest on a Grade 1 Ensemble and qualified to participate in State Solo and Ensemble contest!
DISNEY TRIP GOERS:
If you are a student going on the trip to Disney World on February 17th, you and your parents must attend the February 10th Disney Meeting. Forms will be signed, and handbooks will be disbursed. We will be going over very important information pertaining to the trip. If you are unable to attend the meeting, we must schedule an appointment to meet at another time with you and your parents to go over everything.
Sorry you did not get to perform last week due to cold weather. We have moved your round of solo and ensemble contest to Friday February 11th. Your performance time is posted on the band hall wall. It's the same time as before - we will just now move the performance day to the 11th of February and keep things the way it was.
The color guard performs for their first time this season at Texas Color Guard Circuit. We will need volunteers to come with us for the contest day. We will be reaching out to band students in class to see who would be interested in volunteering. An itinerary will be going out to parents this week for the kids who will be competiting at Goose Creek Memorial HS for TCGC color guard contest. And for the first time ever, a JUNIOR HIGH color guard unit is competing with the high school! GOOD LUCK COLOR GUARD!
That is all for now! Let's have a great week! And PRACTICE 30 MINS A DAY AT THE MINIMUM.
(side note: the band directors have been in ongoing design meetings with our new design team for the 2022 marching band, and we are beyond excited about what we are about to unveil for our band program. We are excited to welcome our new incoming 9th graders into our awesome program, and we will unveil our plans for the marching band at this year's banquet, as is tradition...)
