Please read below for vital information from the MB&G Band.
Pep Rally - This Friday, we will have our first football pep rally. Students will leave class at 1:40 to go to the band room. You need to wear the summer uniform that we've been wearing or whatever the pep rally theme is. Seniors may wear crowns.
Crestview Game - This Friday is also our first real game of the season! The call time is 6pm. We will wear the summer uniform for this. Guard, please be aware that your call time may be earlier. Ms. Byrd will let you know. Managers will need to be at the school at 5:30.
BPA Concessions - Thank you to all that volunteered to help at the game last week. We invite any band parent that is able, to sign up for concessions this week at the Crestview game. please go to the band calendar and look for the yellow helping and symbol on the event to sign up.
Chaperones for game - Parents, we also need help chaperoning the band at the game in the stands. We will have the whole band this time, so we need lots of help on this side. Again, please find the yellow helping hand symbol on the event to sign up.
Show Shirt Designs - This week, we will start accepting show shirt designs. Traditionally, students submit show shirt designs to be voted on by all band students. The winning design will then be sent to Paradise Screen Printing to be professionally drawn and put on the back of a black shirt. Students and parents will then have the option to purchase one of these shirts for $15. More info in class.
Bus Sign-ups - This week we will also begin the process to sign up for busses. We will do this by seniority. Our first away game is next Friday, September 3rd.
FSU Band Day - The FSU Band Day trip is just around the corner. This trip is on Saturday, September 11th. This is for all marching band students. We will meet at the band room at 11am on that day and return by 1am.
Christmas/Spring Concert - I know that these concerts are a long ways away, however, I wanted to make sure everyone knew well in advance that there has been date changes for both. The Christmas Concert will be on Tuesday, December 7th. Decorating for this concert will be December 4th, 5th, & 6th. The Spring Concert Showcase is now on Friday, May 6th.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have a wonderful week!
