We have a regular practice week, and our mandatory pre-MPA rehearsal Friday night from 5:30pm to 8:30 pm.
Please look for emails concerning chaperons/sign-up for MPA. We do not have a JV game or a varsity game this week so we can concentrate our efforts towards a successful marching MPA.
Parents! We need you in the audience if you are not part of the operation on Saturday (MPA). I cannot express how important it is that you are in the stands cheering on the band Saturday. The kids will perform so much better knowing you are in the stands believing in them. Please do not miss this opportunity to see your students do something amazing!
We have a lot to fix and improve but we can do it!
Parents please help me get 100% to practice this week. I cannot make the band better if the students are not there and we have to reteach information if the students are missing. That means we are not moving forward. I need every single one of the them at practice.
Tuesday: Marching Band Practice 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Parents please remember that I release the student at 8:30 from the football stadium field. It may take them a few minutes to get everything put away and out the door

--Marching Band Practice 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm and percussion sectional from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Friday: Pre-MPA rehearsal on football field from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. We will put on a special parent performance at 8:00 pm. Please come out and support the students! I would like the field crew to also be at the run so we can practice the on and off filed procedures. We will do an exact run of the show from the entrance to the exit in preparation for Saturday.
