Good Luck at State Ramsations!! The dance team has been rehearsing and working hard almost everyday getting ready for the State UDA competition tomorrow in Hammond. Good luck, we know you will do well!
Transportation, rehearsals, pep rallies, fees, buses, ACTS, honor band, OH MY!!!!!
A ton of friendly reminders:
-Rehearsal Thursday after school. We will rehearse no longer than 4p.m. so plan rides accordingly.
-Students be aware that there is a pep rally Thursday at the STADIUM at 1:45p.m. Band students will be called out of class at 1:30p.m. to report to the band room. If they do not announce remind your teachers.
-Make sure you pay your 10 dollar honor band fee and get your audition time from Mr. Hochkeppel.
-Everyone should have gotten an itinerary for Saturday's State Championship from Mr. Domingue this week. There was also an email sent out through charms. Parents please read over it with your student.
-Parents all emails regarding alternate transportation to the dome for your student needs to be emailed to Mr. Domingue by Thursday!!! No Exceptions at all! This is to keep your child safe and trip organized for a great experience. Mr. Domingue's email is firstname.lastname@example.org
-Students need to be updated on their fees or they will not be allowed to ride the bus to the dome. I put a list of students who need to see me up in the band room this week. Most have spoken with me and made some sort of arrangements but some have not.
-There is a limited amount of field passes if you have not been given one by Mr. Domingue then you will need to purchase a ticket. I recommend buying in advance so you can walk in as a chaperone with the band.
-If you and your student are meeting the band in New Orleans, the band will enter through the South entrance on Girod St. It is located between the basketball arena and Superdome. Be there at 5:30p.m. sharp. If your student is under your supervision and is not riding with the band it is your responsibility that he/she is there on time with all the proper equipment and uniform parts. We will wait for no one when it is time to enter. Sorry security is very strict at the dome these days.
If you have any other questions or concerns please contact me!!!
