Location: MADISON HIGH SCHOOL

CALL TIME: 4:15 pm

Attendance is mandatory, and excused absence requests should follow established procedures (we know that several students are involved in the St. Basil retreat, which will be an excusable absence… please let us know ASAP). Thanks for your flexibility!

(No evening rehearsals will be added for Playoffs, we will just be attending the game)

Friday was a great win, and a great halftime show for our last game of the regular season! And the “Trunk or Treat” was a wonderful way to cap off the night… many thanks to all of the parents who showed up to pass out candy to the students (who were appreciative, enthusiastic, and polite!), and thank you to Pam Knerem and Debbie Insana for organizing the event.

I feel as though we cannot say THANK YOU enough to our students & parents for all of your hard work to make the marching band experience happen. And, it looks like it’s not time to wrap it all up just yet… the Bees are headed to the PLAYOFFS ON FRIDAY!

FRIDAY PLAYOFF INFORMATION COMING SOON!

Congratulations on your placement!  Throughout the evaluation process, every effort is made to provide a fair and accurate assessment of what is heard/seen on the video. If you are disappointed with the outcome, please remember that it is just one “snapshot” of your playing at a given time, and if you seek to advance within your section, you will have the opportunity to challenge.  If you have questions about your placement, we will be happy to speak with you next week. Also, individual feedback sheets will be provided.
