It has arrived....THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!! I hope you're as excited as I am of all of the possibilities that this year has in store! Students, you've already had a fresh start with the band, now it's time for a fresh start in school. This is your chance to start with a clean slate in your classes. I encourage you to set yourself attainable goals for the year and see how many you accomplish by May. Remember, DON"T FREAK OUT! The first couple of weeks can sometimes be overwhelming, but you have already overcome so much this summer, this shouldn;t be nothin but a thang :-) If you do indeed find yourself gasping for air, we are hear. Just come talk to us. You have 200+ people that also have your back.
We have our first football game this Thursday. Parents, I encourage you to sign up on charms for either the chaperone side with the band or especially at concession side. Both of these are an awesome chance to get involved with the band and gain new friends and acquaintances. By working the concession stand, you can work off $25 towards your child's fair share. I look forward to seeing you there.
Students, just a few reminders about the game:
- Uniform: Polo Shirts, Black jean or dress type shorts (NO GYM SHORTS), White Shoes
- You may not eat anything in the stands so please do not accept anything from someone outside of the band section
- We will give you water at various points throughout the game
- We will go over a few other points as they come up throughout the seek.
