We are off to a great season! Thank you so much to all of our students for bringing the party and putting on a great show Friday night. Thank you our parents who helped at the concession stand and chaperoned! We could not have made it through the night without your help :-)
Lumpia - This is just a reminder to collect lumpia orders. If you need a new form, there are plenty on the black board in front of the band room. These are due next Wednesday, no earlier or later.
Bibbers & Shoes - The bibbers have been delivered. We have them in the band office in a box. We will distribute these on Monday. Please make sure you try them on and make sure they fit. Wehave a limited supply of emergency replacements if needed. If you still have not ordered shoes, you MUST do that no later than Monday. CLICK HERE for the link. Any later than Monday, and you will NOT have them by Friday and you will be out of uniform.
Guard & Manger Uniforms - This Friday will be the first game in semi full uniform. This means guard will wear the BLACK shoes, TAN gloves, Back Unitard, and Tunic that was on the order form. CLICK HERE to double check that you received the appropriate parts. Ms. Byrd handed out the Tunics to all guard students earlier last week. Managers will always wear the summer uniform for the year (Claw shirts/Blue Jeans)
Winds & Percussion Uniform - This Friday will be the first game in semi full uniform. This means winds and percussion will be wearing the black band jacket, sash, gauntlets, bibbers, Bando shoes, and SOLID BLACK CALF LENGTH socks, and gloves. You will need to purchase the socks on your own. We will hand out the gloves on Friday. Students will NOT be able to perform without these unform parts. You may bring your uniform to school that morning and hang it on the appropriate uniform rack. Please make sure you memorize your uniform part numbers now. When we receive the plumes, we will wear helmets at that time. We will inform you when this will occur.
Catholic Game Friday - Due to Senior night events, we will meet at 5:45pm this Friday. Parents, CLICK HERE to help the BPA at the concessions or CLICK HERE if you would like to help chaperone,
Senior Night - Seniors, please make sure your escorts are all present at the band section no later than 6:55 Friday night. All escorts must purchase a ticket for entry. We will show you where you will be standing on the field this week. Remember, you will go straight down the hash marks to your spot. Once you name is called, you will meet us at the dot straight forward even with the field numbers.
BPA Game Day Dinner - The BPA will once again be cooking for any band student that would like this Friday 4pm-5:30. This week in addition to hot dogs, hamburgers, and nachos, they will have Olive Garden parmesan chicken pasta and spaghetti.....Mmmmmmm :-) Again, this is free of charge for the students and served at the BPA Concession at the football field.
Concert Instruments - We need all school-owned CONCERT instruments returned on Monday. We will be sending all of these off to Schmidt's Music for cleaning and repairs for the year on Tuesday. Make bring them in the main band room area first thing in the morning.
All-State Auditions - This Wednesday is the deadline to sign-up for All-State auditions. Anyone interested needs to see Ms. Ruiz or Mr. Schultz. We will post a list on Monday of everyone who has signed up. Auditions will take place at Milton High School onSaturday, September 17th. An exact schedule will be posted as soon as FBA releases it.
That is all for now. I hope all of you have an EPICER week!
