WEEKLY NEWS: January 20-26, 2019



FROM DIRECTOR SANDS


Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!


Jr. All-State Band
Congratulations to Freshman trombone player Ben Ice. Ben braved the elements and made it to Fort Wayne to perform with the Jr. All-State Band at the Indiana Music Educators Association Conference. The All-State Band performed Saturday in the Embassy Theater.


Winter Winds
Winter Winds will rehearse Tuesday and Thursday. If you have not submitted your 2nd payment ($100) please do so immediately.


Road Trip
The Wind Ensemble (1st period band) will travel to the Middle School this Thursday. The HS band members will interact with the MS band during the morning classes. We will participate in a side-by-side rehearsal. The MS band members will have an opportunity to ask questions about the HS band. The plan is to hike over to the middle school, so dress warm. Band members will miss their 1st and 2nd period classes.


Corporation Band Concert
Reminder: The Corporation Band Concert originally scheduled for Jan. 24 has been cancelled due to concerns regarding over crowding.




FROM DAVE


Prop crew practice is Friday at 8:00 PM. Fee payment of $100 is due TOMORROW. Final payments are due February 4th unless special arrangements have been made with Dave. 



SHAMROCK SHOWCASE


All Band/Guard Students and Parents: This event is 2 weeks away!!! We need help from ALL band & guard families to help make the Shamrock Showcase a success. They have streamlined a lot this year, but there are a lot of volunteer positions to fill. A successful event reflects well upon the entire band. You might not see some key guard families on the sign-up because they are in leadership positions and filling many rolls. But rest assured, they are actively involved. We would like to see band families sign up too and help make this event great! 


Sign up to volunteer for Shamrock Showcase HERE or on the uniform room door in the band room.


If you are not available on February 2, but would still like to help, you can sign up for drinks and desserts HERE.


Sign up for Concessions HERE. All proceeds from concessions benefit the boosters general fund.
