Greetings everyone this is Brian Best the band director Atascocita High School for the next school year. Coming at you with this next week's update for May 23.
First, some quick shout outs!
Congratulations to everyone on an amazing spring concert! And I also heard that the band bash was super fun, so that's awesome. I'd also like to thank everyone who has filled out registration paperwork for next year's marching band. It is shaping up to be a super exciting marching year and I can't wait to get started with you all officially. We are now down to only a small handful of kiddos who have band as a class for next year but have not turned in the online registration paperwork yet. Please let us know if there's anything we can do to help.
Also a quick shout out to Miss Cook who organized the Jose Diaz Institute to host a Humble ISD Jazz camp and concert in June. Be sure to check the website and the calendar for more information on this event.
Another quick shout out to the percussion section for assisting over the weekend to help out your fine arts director with all things percussion for our inventory. Thank you to everyone involved in that.
DRUM MAJOR TRAININGS: Okay, so this upcoming May 23rd week is slowly wrapping things up. On Monday and Wednesday at 3:30, we will have drum major trainings again. So for anyone applying to be next year's drum major, I will need to see you there.
MAKE UP PLACEMENT HEARINGS: Also for any student who registered but hasn't gotten a chance to play for us for class placement, we need you to do that for our makeup Day on May 23rd Monday at 4:30 p.m. This will take place at the Atascocita High School band hall. If you need help on how to get to the band hall, reach out to a band director and we will help you. And remember please do not stress out; we just want to hear you play.
LEADERSHIP TEAM INTERVIEWS: Any student who is applying to be on next year's leadership team, you need to do an interview with the band directors. And that has to happen this week. Now I learned just recently that there's class instruction only on Monday and Tuesday, so let's try to see if we can get as many interviews done on those two days during class or after school. If you're not able to get it done on either Monday or Tuesday either during class or after school, you will need to stop by the band hall for a quick 5 minutes on either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. If there's a conflict, just make sure to reach out to the band directors and notify them.
GRADUATION: May 28th, the Atascocita High School band will be participating in performing at the high school graduation. To what I understand, a group of students were selected to perform for this. (NEED MORE)
PHYSICALS AND RANKONE: If you have registered for band and you intend on participating with us in the high school band for the next year, as most of you already know, an athletic physical is required for any outdoor participation. When it is complete, you can turn it into the band office, and a band director will take it from there. Please go to www.atascocitaband.com and click on physicals for more information. The rank one online applications can be found there as well, as well as step by step instructions on how to get them done.
If I have left anything out for the week, please do not hesitate to message back and we will respond as quickly as possibly. My new friends, you are almost to the finish line! You have almost completed the year of 2021-2022. With that being said, the directors would like to extend their congratulations to the graduating senior class of the Atascocita High School band of 2022! Way to go guys!!
And as always for all things band, please visit us at www.atascocitaband.com for all things Atascocita band related. We will see you on the next update, and we hope you have a great week!
