Can you believe that this is the final week of school for 2018-19!! I hope everyone enjoys their final week.
We had an outstanding first rehearsal last week. If you missed this rehearsal, no worries. The second rehearsal also known as the downbeat rehearsal is this Thursday at 6pm. This is for all new and returning marching band students. If you are new and need to be issued a school-owned instrument and will not be marching, please come to this rehearsal so we can issue this to you. These are for Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Oboe, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, and Tuba. You will also need to look over the audition information with dates by clicking HERE. Notice that Jazz Band auditions will take place this Thursday 4pm-6pm. This is just before the rehearsal that night. That information can be found HERE.
I encourage everyone to come out and see our seniors off one last time this Tuesday night at 7pm at the MHS football field. Gates will open at 5:30.
Next week is ROOKIE CAMP. This camp is for all new marching band members. Any returning member is welcome to join to "beef up" on your marching skills. Any new member needing new uniform parts will need to attend one of the uniform fittings on either the 4th or 5th after camp. These are the days the new students will be measured for uniform parts as well. Please make sure you all start getting acclimated to outside conditions before camp! For your planning purposes, we will begin at 8am and end at 3pm each day. Lunch will be noon to 1pm.
Good luck to all on your final week and on your exams!
