*7:10pm Once in the bleachers, we will get ready to play Lift Every Voice and Sing followed by the Star Spangled Banner.
*3rd Quarter For a portion of the third quarter, students can purchase snacks from the concessions area TO BE. CONSUMED BEFORE COMING BACK INTO THE BLEACHERS. Marching band students (which also means color guard) are not allowed to have any food, snacks, candy, soda, etc. in the bleachers. Those items will damage instruments. Students will be given a time to report back to the bleachers to continue to play stand tunes for the remainder of the game.
*After 4th quarter march back into the band room to change out of uniforms and then enjoy your fall break!!
(I'll be celebrating my birthday Saturday as I get on a plane heading to California.)
Let's have a great "last game before the fall break."
Starting THIS week, FULL band practice will be on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings -- NO MONDAY practice. Percussion and Color Guard DO practice on Monday evenings.
Home football game this week. Mr. Jenkins will send out the full time schedule later this week.
Next week is FALL BREAK! No game OR practice. Enjoy and Rest!
