Here are a few reminders for the first full week of school:

-Next week's schedule is as follows:
  •           Tuesday: Full Band 3-5:30
          Wednesday: Percussion 3-5
                             Brass: 3-4
          Thursday: Full Band 3-5:30
-There is virtually NO EXCUSE for missing rehearsal on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The band has practices on Tuesday and Thursday for years and this will not change in the near future. This includes any other club meeting. Tues. and Thurs. practice for band takes precedence over any other meeting. You WILL NOT be excused. Work is also not an excuse. 
-The directors will work with you if you need to miss a Wednesday Sectional, but only if you have a VALID excuse and notify them prior to the sectional.
-Please come to rehearsal prepared and ready to work. There have been entirely too many incidents related to the heat. You MUST wear a hat to rehearsal from now on, and you MUST eat both breakfast and lunch. It is advised that you drink water and/or Powerade throughout the school day. NO SOFT DRINKS! You should also bring a snack from home to eat before practice begins.
-If you have not received an All-State packet and would like one, please see Aaron Mire next week ASAP so you can start practicing.
--If you haven't paid your band camp fees, please do so.
-- Section leaders must pass off the first movement by Wednesday. Everyone else must pass off the first movement to their section leaders by Friday. It is required. If you have not passed off before, you mark time and do the proper footwork (ex. step offs) while playing your part, all from memory. 
--"Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good." One thing that will guarantee that the band gets better is individual practice time. You must practice if you would like to see this band program to improve.
