Band News – Sept. 3

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is enjoying an enjoyable and restful Labor Day weekend! I enjoyed starting this holiday weekend with a home game on Friday. I hope everyone enjoyed the football band’s first performance and hearing the band during the game. I look forward to our next home game in two weeks!
This week we will be off Monday… but then it’s a busy week!
Tuesday – Rehearsal after school until 5:45
Wednesday – Rehearsal after school until 5:30
The dunk tank for the Moneydolly incentive will be after practice on Wednesday. Even if you didn’t make the 10 unit goal, you can still dunk the directors! $5 per throw. There will also be a dessert truck from Jeremiah’s Italian Ice for students to purchase a treat after practice. Small Italian Ice will be $4, so bring money and plan accordingly. Parents, be aware that students will probably want to stay later to watch. Please park in the junior lot to wait on your child.
Thursday – Rehearsal after school until 5:45
Friday – Pep band game at Greer
Signup sheets will be up on Tuesday. Schedule will be released on Tuesday.
