It is the week of the first game! Lots going on!
-Monday evening rehearsal for 1st hour. Seniors are getting their banner photos taken at 6PM in the band room and full rehearsal is at 7PM.
-Wednesday morning’s practice with 5th hour and 1st hour is crucial. This is when we put everything together for Thursday and Friday. 5th hour’s teachers have been informed that Freshman Band will be staying into 1st hour to practice the stadium entrance and everything for the game and pep assembly.
-Thursday is the pep assembly during seminar. Both 1st and 5th hour will be released from class early so we can be ready when the students arrive in the stadium. We will perform pregame and the first tune of halftime during the assembly. Please wear a “Southish” shirt (green, gold or white preferred) or a band shirt from a previous year.
-Friday is game day! The boosters are hosting a picnic in the courtyard starting at 5PM. Please bring your own dinner and seating. The band warms-up in full uniform at 6PM in the auditorium and heads for the stadium around 6:30. The game starts at 7 and will end around 9:30ish. It is supposed to be a warm day so watch for announcements about possibly not using the uniforms and going with those Southish shirts!
And don’t forget to promote the mattress sale while is Sunday, Sept. 12 in our gym! I have attached a flyer that you can share or print off. Make sure you have anyone that will come to put in your name (your student’s name) in the referral line so you get credit for any mattress sold to people you contacted!
And finally, this is week 2 of music pass-offs.
-5th hour-Fight Song and Star Spangled Banner are worth 100 points this week and Let’s Get it Started and the School Song are worth 90 points.
-1st hour-Same as 5th hour except Tune 2 from halftime is also worth 100 and Tune 1 is worth 90.
