FRIDAY – This Friday, Oct. 25 is the Martin game. We will be the visitors so we will sit on the opposite side of the stadium. Call time will be 5:00pm.

SPRING TRIP – We currently have 70 students that have deposited on the spring trip. We have room for a few more students but we are running out of time to take any more students. If you are interested in going, see Mr. Lang ASAP. Chaperones haven’t been decided. This will happen as soon as possible.

UIL AND USBANDS AUSTIN – The band staff is very proud of the students on their most recent performance. The show continues to get stronger. We are looking forward to our final competitive performance of the year. We will be going up against 20 other bands from around the state and 7 in our classification. The current itinerary is attached to this email. It is subject to change but as of now, we have a very good performance time. If you would like to purchase tickets to the USBands contest, the tickets are $12 and available in the band office.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK – “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt
