We make sure that the band members have access to the ice machines in the cafeteria and filtered water in all of the water fountains. 
 
This week is going to be extremely hot. We will monitor the heat index and make adjustments as needed but we need the band members to do their part by being responsible for bringing their water coolers to rehearsal.

We hope you share in our excitement of the first home football game this Friday as the Red Hawks take on Franklin High School. Home football games work a little differently than away football games:
  • When the 3:30 PM bell rings students are dismissed from school. All students will need to leave campus to go home or to go and eat with other band members. There is no Friday meal for home games. There will also be no adult supervision between 3:45 PM and 5:30 PM as directors and band staff will leave campus as well.

  • Doors to the school will reopen at 5:45 PM. Students will get dressed into their dress uniform and meet for inspection.

  • Red uniform shorts and black marching band shoes will be distributed this week in class. These items, along with the black band shirt is what is worn under (and with) the dress uniform.

Private Lessons
A friendly reminder that we would like to see as many students take advantage of private lessons this year. We have an incredible resource of teachers on our campus. The new cycle of Mid-State music has just been released and we are encouraging every student to consider auditioning. At $1.00 per minute - lessons are an affordable investment in your child.
 
If you child is already taking private lessons with any of our campus instructors, please fill out this form too (if you have not already done so).
 
 
Absences from School and/or Rehearsals
We ask that students take a moment to send a text message (or an email) to the band office to let us know if they will be missing school or missing an ASR. Sometimes students will miss school for one reason or another but can and should attend their ASR. With students involved in multiple activities, we ask that students take a moment and let us know if they are going to be absent from class and/or an ASR. This helps us monitor attendance on Skyward as an added protection. Absences stated on the yellow conflict forms still need to be communicated through text message (or email) the week of the conflict.

Students can fill up their water coolers before the ASR. We do have ice available in the cafeteria for those students who need it. Parents - please stress the need to have the right attire and water coolers at all ASR's.
