First I would like to congratulate all of the All-County students on a stupendous concert Friday night! All of you represented not just Milton High School well but also Santa Rosa County. It was simply amazing what you did in only 7 hours of rehearsal. I hope you enjoyed your time with Dr. Fraschillo and making memories with everyone.
This week we begin the after school rehearsals for all of the concert bands. The schedule is below. Let me remind everyone regardless of which concert or indoor group you are in, it is your responsibility to communicate with the directors about missed rehearsals. DO NOT just miss any of these rehearsals without informing us of the reason. All rehearsals are REQUIRED and any absence will be unexcused until an absence appeal form is turned in to Mr. Schultz the day of your return. Work, homework, tiredness, and such are not excusable.
Trip deadlines are upon us and if you have not signed up for an excursion, you need to do so ASAP. This deadline was last Friday. Please sign up now by clicking HERE. You can see info about the excursions on our website by clicking HERE. The excursions payments are due January 31st. The trip meeting is Tuesday, January 30th. We will answer any and all questions about the trip along with the excursions and what is paying for what on that night. It is extremely important that everyone attending the trip is present at the meeting!. If you have a credit balance in your charms account, you can use that for excursion payment, just email Mrs. Weaver at firstname.lastname@example.org to request to use however much credit you have for your excursion.
If you are participating in the FBA Solo & Ensemble on February 16th, please make sure you get me the form I gave you by tomorrow morning! IF I do not receive the form, you will not be participating this year.
Trumpets, Amazing opportunity for you!! The University of South Alabama will be hosting a trumpet day. You have the chance to attend a masterclass by International Trumpet Guild president Cathy Leach along with the world famous Johnny Carson's Tonight show trumpeter and band leader Doc Severinsen!! There are payment deadlines for this event. All the info along with registration can be found by clicking HERE.
Last but not least, PLEASE PAY YOUR FAIR SHARES ASAP!!! Right now, the band has 0 operating money do to some bills that have been paid from marching season and lack of fair share payments turned in. If we do not receive these fair shares, we will be forced to cancel performances as well as the band banquet due to lack of funds. Please go to your charms accounts and make sure you are up to date.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have a super week!
