First off, really nice job, everyone, at last Friday night's game! Both bands are in a very good place for this early in the season.
-It is true! There is no early 5th hour band practice on Wednesday morning this week. First hour needs to have an indoor practice first thing Wednesday morning so 5th hour gets to sleep in!
-We have an away football game on Friday night...which is at SM South. I know, that can be confusing. The district only has two stadiums so this is SM West's home game and we are the visiting team but the game is played at South. We use a volunteer pep band for these. Section leaders and officers are required to be there and it is optional but encouraged for everyone else. Our pep bands usually have between 70 and 100 people playing. Everyone who plays gets 50 pts extra credit. Just wear your band shirt-no uniforms or marching. Be in the stands at 6:30PM. The band room will be open. Band members get into the game free.
-The mattress sale is this Saturday from 10-5. Please do all you can to get the word out. Here is a short video that shows you what it is all about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ4NpXCI_iU Prices are below those of stores, top brands, delivery included, and the students and band make a chunk of money. People need mattresses from time to time, if it is that time, have them buy it from us! We will have signups for volunteer pep bands to play throughout the day to literally drum up business.
-There is no new music memory due this week but if you missed something last week, take care of it this week. There are still lots of points available on each song.
-Finally, there are just a few people with forms and/or fees still out. Please take care of those. Thank you to everyone who has turned in anything.
-OK, really finally this time, IS YOUR UNIFORM HUNG UP CORRECTLY AT HOME? :-)
