Congratulations, and good luck this season!
MARCHING BAND 6th PERIOD THIS WEEK
Monday (11/20) & Tuesday (11/21), students will combine into 6th period to rehearse for the Holiday Parade. Barring inclement weather, we WILL go outside, so students should BRING COATS to class. Marching Band raincoats may not be used.
SYMPHONIC SCHEDULE INFORMATION:
HOLIDAY PARADE – Sunday 11/26 (CT 2:45)
We will meet at the high school, then bus down to Lawnpark Drive to assemble for the parade, which begins at 4:00. Following the parade, buses will pick us up behind Central School, and we will return to the school at approximately 4:30.
Absence requests for the parade must follow established procedures
*Students not traveling to Disney should leave uniforms hung up at school (please remove Dinkles and all personal belongings from your garment bag…check your pockets, too).
We wish you all the best for an enjoyable and relaxing Thanksgiving!
ALL STUDENTS are asked to sign up to have their picture taken for the composite marching band picture that will hang in the band room. These pictures go back several decades, and we want to make sure that everyone is represented!
HOW IT WORKS:
SELECTION MEETINGS – Monday, November 13th
To all students, parents, chaperones, staff, and anyone & everyone who helped to make The Marching Bees run this season — it takes so much work from all, and we cannot thank you enough for your time and dedication!
CONCERT BANDS BEGIN MONDAY
*Symphonic Band students should review their schedules on Monday to determine where they will be 6th period. Generally, if the student is a 10th or 11th grader, they will have lunch 6A and Study Hall 6B. If they are a 9th or 12th grader, they will have Study Hall 6A and lunch 6B. Please confirm your schedule.
If your personal instrument is in need of maintenance/repair from marching season, please attend to this ASAP. All students should have instruments in proper working condition (tuning slides that move, no tape holding things together, etc), along with all necessary equipment (reeds, ligatures, valve oil) throughout the concert season.
New Folder Cabinet!
Many thanks to Jim Castelucci for constructing a brand new (and badly needed) cabinet for band & orchestra folders! This was a HUGE job — thank you, Mr. Castelucci!
All students should put folders in these slots, rather than in their lockers… this will prolong the life of the folders. Slots will be labeled by ensemble soon.
CITRUS SALE – Orders DUE 11/2 @ 2:35 pm!
Portraits with Pride – November 7th*
*Time slots between 3-8pm will be available. All students should plan to sign up to have their picture taken for the composite band picture that will hang in the band room! The option to purchase individual photos is available, but there is NO PURCHASE REQUIRED.
