HALFTIME MEMORIZATION CHECKS – Must be completed by Friday 9/5

Students must complete a Memorization Check on ALL HALFTIME MUSIC by next Friday 9/5, by performing their music for Mr. Wyse, Mrs. Astey, or Mr. Griffin (percussion is assessed by Mr. Sark/Mr. Taylor). Students will be allowed to perform in groups of 2 or 3, on the same instrument. We will have signups posted beginning this week, and all students must sign up for a time.

Students who are not completely memorized may continue to use flip folders until they are able to demonstrate full knowledge of the music. Remember, we – and the student leaders, are here to help you! And we only sound our best with 100% participation!

Thank you for a great start to the season!
