Parents and Students,
I am emailing you from this address because email@example.com is not functioning properly right now. Hopefully it will be back up soon.
School is almost here. Even though I know some of you are not excited, I just want you to know that what you do during the school year directly affects your future.STAY POSITIVE!! Set goals and work hard to achieve them. Never give up, just like you did when learning the marching band show!
After School Rehearsals
Monday will conclude our last 5-8 rehearsal. Just to clarify...we will not start Tuesday rehearsals until our first week of competition in September. Regularly scheduled rehearsals are Monday and Thursdays from 4:30 - 6:30 pm. Make sure you bring a change of clothes, snack, and water for rehearsal. You can keep all of this in your band locker.
Volunteer Sign up
Contact Aviance Bowens at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have not signed up to help out with football games and competitions. Remember that YOU are a part of the family too!
Remember that if you are not paying for your fair share fees with cash, check, or money order, then you should be selling coupon books. This fundraiser is to help your fees. If you sell 30 books you will pay your entire fee.
PARENTS...sell at your job if they will allow you...Kids sell to teachers and coaches...Sell at church and other family functions...Greenville & Spartanburg people can also purchase online. The final fair share deadline is due by September 1st. There should be no excuse to have your fees paid by then. We could make HISTORY by being the FIRST SHS BAND to complete payments before our first competition!!
- T-shirt money $10. If you do not turn in the money you will not receive your t-shirt and will not perform. If you cannot make this deadline please talk to Mr. Tillman.
- Field trip form & Letter of Mutual Consent. If you do not turn these in you cannot get on the bus.
- Summer Uniform is khaki shorts, black belt, white socks, white shoes, and show t-shirt. Same as what you wore for the exhibition. We will give out show shirts before the game on Friday.
- Flip folder with extra pages and lyre with music already inside. Do not wait until Friday to cut and place your music in your flip folder.
Make up hours
Excused absences include medical appointments, funerals, etc. If you have an unexcused absence (absences that the school counts as unexcused i.e. work, vacations, basically just not showing up) then you need to make up your hours before you can perform. You may arrive as early as 1 hour before practice and stay as late as 30 minutes after. It is my firm belief that all students should go into performance with the same amount of time.
This weeks events (Please be reminded that students are to be picked up no later than 30 minutes after a rehearsal ends)
Monday - MB Rehearsal - 5 - 8 pm
Thursday - MB Rehearsal - 4:30 - 6:30 pm
Friday - Home football game vs. JL Mann - Call time 5:30 pm (Students can stay in the band room after school) We should be back at the school at approximately 10:15 pm.
