Another OUTSTANDING job at the Choctaw game to all! I continue to be amazed at the progress our students are making with the show as well as the spirit they bring to the games in the stands! Keep it up everyone. Soon we will have our complete show on the field to add that extra element to everything.
A few uniform updates. First, to the colorguard. We have been in constant contact with Algy, the uniform company making your uniforms. They are assuring us that the uniforms that were ordered in June are in production and are due to be completed and shipped hopefully this week. Keep your fingers crossed! The helmets for the winds and percussion have also obviously been delayed. These were also ordered at the beginning of June. They were having trouble with the gold paint of the helmets flaking off, so they have had to completely strip all of the helmets and repaint all 60 of them. We still have no word on when these will ship, but will keep you updated.
This week, we will be keeping an eye on tropical storm Gordon. Please make sure you pay attention to news and weather broadcasts for updates on school closings. As of right now, we are planning for business as usual with rehearsals, the meat sticking, and school.
We do have our first meat sticking this Wednesday, weather permitting. All students are to stay and help out with this event. We will begin 5th period with concert band. The full band will join in after school. We are scheduled to go till 6pm, but there is a chance that we will be done earlier.
This Friday is our first home game in a couple weeks. Parents, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please use the links below to sign up for either side. All help is appreciated.
