Announcements 10-16-13

FRIDAY – This Friday, Oct. 18th, is 8th grade band night. The 8th grade band students from Nichols and Shack will come over during the school day on Friday to prepare for Friday’s halftime performance. We will perform a combined piece with them after our halftime show. This will be a fun evening with 220 band kids playing together! A huge thanks to the booster club for feeding the band students lunch and a snack/drink after halftime. We encourage everyone to come to CiCi’s after the game!

REHEARSAL SATURDAY – This Saturday, Oct. 19th, we will have rehearsal from 9:00-11:45am. The band has UIL on Oct. 22nd. With contest so close, it is crucial to have this rehearsal. This is a makeup rehearsal from the cancelled rehearsal Monday.

SPRING TRIP – We are VERY close to the 60 students required for the trip to make. We have extended the deadline to Friday. Contracts are available in the band hall. Deposits & contracts due ASAP.

UIL AND USBANDS AUSTIN – The itinerary for UIL is attached and USBands Austin will be available as soon as possible. The schedules often change the closer we get to the event date so times sometimes vary. Please make sure that the evening of Oct. 22nd is free for UIL and the entire day/evening of Nov. 2nd is free for USBands. These two events have been on the band calendar since April.

PRIVATE VIDEO SITE – Mr. Breedlove has loaded his videos from this season on a private “Vimeo” channel. We are making this available to all band students and parents. Make sure to enter the password all caps. Thanks Mr. Breedlove!
