From the Band Boosters
We are so excited out the 2016-2017 Band season! We expect another record breaking year from the Orange Express Bands. Already, our kids have put in hours of hard work, sweat and even some tears toward their goals and WE are just getting started. With support and encouragement from us parents, they WILL be able to achieve all of their individual and group goals.
Please take note of the items below:
We are all truly excited about the potential success this season brings.

Parents and Students,
Great job by all this week! I hope you all had a very RESTFUL weekend. If not, please get some sleep tonight. We will resume camp this week and continue to learn our marching band field show!
Please sync the band calendar with your smart phone. I have sent a link to everyone on Friday. Everyone is responsible for attending ALL events. Please schedule all dates around marching band. When one misses, we ALL are affected.
Please be reminded that we start rehearsal at 8:00am. Please arrive by 7:45am so that you can make it to the field on time. The penalty for being late are running laps and/or making up the time after rehearsal. Parents remember that we are trying to teach our kids the importance of being on time and this is especially important habit for their careers in the future. Also make sure that students are present at all rehearsals. When one person misses, the entire team suffers.
The Summer Uniform consists of Khaki shorts, our Rise of the Humans show T-shirts, black belt, white socks, and white shoes. We will wear the summer uniform on Friday, except for the new show shirt. Veterans will wear old show show shirts and rookies may wear a black t-shirt or borrow a previous show shirt from a veteran.
Our show T-shirts this year are $10.00 for students. If anyone else would like to purchase a shirt please see the attached order form. Orders and money are due Wednesday. Cash, checks, or money orders accepted. Please make checks payable to Southside High School.
The next fair share payment #4 of $50 is due Monday. Remember that it is everyone's responsibility to pay their fees in a timely fashion. Pay what you can in increments that work for you but don't let the final date creep up on you. Cash or checks. Please make checks to Southside High School. We cannot function without your fair share payments.
Our next fundraiser IS NOW! Sell at church, family members, coaches, teachers, salons, barbershops, work...EVERYONE, REGARDLESS OF FEES PAID, IS ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE THE FUNDRAISER! If you are not going to participate then make sure that you pay your fees on time. Let's work together to make our program a success!
Our Band Exhibition will occur this Friday, August 7th at 6:00pm on the band practice field next to tennis courts followed by a FOOD inside! The students will perform what we have learned during band camp! Please be early so you do not miss it!
If you are on Facebook, please join the Southside High School Band Facebook Group! You can ask questions and CELEBRATE the Orange Express!!
Always remember to be at the right place, at the right time, with the right equipment, and the right attitude, ready to do a SUPERIOR job!
Go Southside Tigers!
