SCHS Band - Week 8 Run-Down (Gig Sheet, Parent Volunteer Sign-Ups, Etc.)

Greetings SCHS Band Families,
 
We hope that everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing fall break. It has been great to see everyone. As we prepare to get back into the swing of things, we have a busy week ahead.

Please be thinking about our band contest on November 2nd. This is the 38th Annual TN Division II State Marching Band Championship. This is our biggest fundraiser and we need all hands on deck for this one. We will discuss this more at our meeting, including how to sign-up. We head to Lebanon High School this week for another match-up of exciting football action. We are performing at half-time so we hope you will consider making the journey to support Stewarts Creek High School.
 
What follows is the gig sheet for the week, a sign-up sheet for parent volunteers, and a few announcements and reminders.

SCHS Band - Things to Note This Week
  • Thursday (10/17) - Mandatory Band Parent and Band Member meeting at 6:30 PM in the Cafeteria. We will end rehearsal at 6:15 and will meet as a full band and full parent unit. We are asking for at least one parent representative of current band members (and all band members) to attend this meeting. Among the topics will be the performance calendar for this semester, play-off performance dates, the TN Division II State Marching Band Contest, and information regarding the next performance trip in 2020.

  • We have two ASR's this week on Tuesday (10/15) and Thursday (10/17). Both rehearsals will start at 4:30 PM but will end at different times.

  • Tuesday's (10/15) rehearsal will end around 5:45 PM to transition to the football stadium for the Stewarts Creek Middle School Football Half-Time special performance. Band members will be finished by or before our normal dismissal time of 7:30 PM. Dress for Tuesday's performance will be the polo shirt and choice of jeans or khakis.

  • Thursday's (10/17) rehearsal will end at 6:15 PM for band members to join their parents for our mandatory band parent/member meeting at 6:30 PM.

  • SCHS Music Boosters Raffle Updates - Sales end next Monday (10/21). Band members should return their envelopes with money for tickets or should return unsold tickets to the band black box. The SCHS Music Boosters are sponsoring a raffle fundraiser to support the SCHS Band Program as we continue to grow and to raise the capital funds needed for additional instruments for our 1:1 instrument campaign. Band members were given a packet for parents to read. Each packet contains 15 tickets to sell with various price combinations. Should you have any questions about this fundraiser, please contact the booster club at schsmbinc@gmail.com or call 615-625-2184.
