1. Grading Policy
Please find the 2013-14 Band grading policy under the Documents tab. These went into effect Wednesday, August 21st. Your child brought home a copy of this document Wednesday afternoon.
We will go to the field during 7th period on Monday. Bring appropriate shoes, etc.
3. Bus Seats
We still have 2-3 extra seats on the bus this Friday. If you would like to claim one, I will take whoever contacts me first. They are $20 each.
4. Sparta Details
We will NOT wear our marching band uniforms this week or next week. We will wear our new band polos (to be passed out later this week) tucked in, with khaki pants, belt, socks, and shoes. Wear this to school on Friday morning. Bring a sack lunch to eat after the pep rally on Friday. Do not wait on someone to run to the Pizza Dr. to bring you something to eat. We will leave on time whether you have eaten or not. We will only stop on the way to and from if the bus driver needs to stop. All band members must ride the bus TO Sparta. Anyone not riding the bus home must be signed out. If you will be riding home with someone other than a parent/guardian, I need a note before we leave the PA campus at 12:30 Friday. A detailed itinerary was emailed to all band members.
For new members (and parents) - do not stress or worry about this first trip and performance. Show up, stay with the group, and I'll take care of the rest.
Have a great week!
