Just a friendly reminder that all band members not at the RCS All-County Band will need to wear their black band shirts/blue jeans to school. Band members will be allowed to participate in any of the Coming Home festivities but will need to report to the band room by 2:00 PM. Please also make sure to bring your flip folder and marching instrument. Replacement black band shirts are $25.00.
 
RCS All-County Band - UPDATE
Please note that the rehearsal times and locations for the middle school ACB participants are different on Thursday. Please also note that the arrival times are different on Friday (even though they are in the same location). We wanted to let everyone know for planning rides for students or for students driving siblings, etc. If there should be any issues with inclement weather that would impact the RCS All-County Band, we will communicate through text message.

 
Calendar Change - UPDATE
We have just received our MTSBOA Concert Performance dates which will take place at MTSU. Due to the schoolwide ACT test we have shifted the ASR's for that week to coincide with our performances. Concert and Symphonic Band ASR will take place as scheduled on Monday, March 6 from 3:45 PM - 5:30 PM. The Concert and Symphonic Band performance at MTSU will take place in the afternoon on Wednesday, March 8.
 
The Wind Ensemble will now move their ASR to Thursday, March 9, from 3:45 PM - 5:30 PM. The Wind Ensemble will perform at MTSU on the afternoon of Friday, March 10. Specific performances times will be released as we get to the end of February. We would like to encourage all parents and family members to come out and support the band at these special performances. More information will be presented at the February 21 Assessment Concert at SCHS.
 
Absences from School and Notification Policy
Just a friendly reminder that we ask students to notify us via text message if they are going to be absent from school. This helps us to ensure accurate attendance records for all the band members and is also a soft job skill that we are trying to teach students so that they will be successful in their communication skills with their future college or workforce professionalism.

SCHS Band - MNR: January 9, 2023

Good Evening SCHS Band Members and Families,
 
Here is your Monday Night Rundown (MNR) for the week of January 9:
 
We hope that the recent time off has been rewarding and relaxing (unless you were traveling by air . . .we will leave that one alone). We hope that everyone has had a great start to 2023. The band members have wasted no time. Each class is in the middle of reading literature for our upcoming concerts this semester. We hope to see you at our next performance.
 
SCHS Band Q3 and Q4 Rehearsal and Performance Calendar
Please click the link below to access the rehearsal and performance calendar for quarters 3 & 4 (aka the spring semester calendar). For everyone's convenience and planning, we have also posted the dates for band camp this coming July. If you have already subscribed to the band calendar with your mobile device, the dates are already posted. If you have not subscribed, we encourage you to do so by scanning the QR code on the form. All band members have been issued a pastel orange colored hard copy of this calendar in class (and it is posted on the players board for all band members to see in the band room entry).
 
 
SCHS Band Spring Semester Calendar Conflict Form
Just as we did at the start of the fall semester in August, we have a conflict form for the Q3 and Q4 rehearsal and performance calendar. This form was handed out to band members in class and is pastel blue color. However, we know that even in high school, forms sometimes seem to vanish or as we hear that forms were stolen (as we know how incredibly lucrative the marketplace is for calendar conflict forms). Therefore if you need an extra conflict form, please click the link below. This signed form by parents and students is due to the band office by Friday, January 13, 2023.
