Here is your weekly update for 8/15/2022!
Fundraiser! The WiddyUp! Fundraiser is underway! Make sure to hit that share button of your videos and get those funds raised for your Disney trip and our program. If you still have not submitted your pitch and final video, it’s not too late. You can still join in on the fun - we are expecting everyone to participate, because it’s super ultra easy to do!
Private Lessons: We will be sending out a form during class for students who are interested in private lessons tomorrow during class. They are GUARANTEED to make you a better player, because you will receive private individualized instruction on your instrument tailored to your needs to become an outstanding musician. Each private lesson teacher will have different days, times, and weekly prices. If you are interested in taking private lessons with our staff, sign up tomorrow, and we will put everything together for you once the time comes. Have a discussion tonight as a family and see if it’s something that you would be able to do.
Concession Stands: Eagle Football season is here!! It’s all hands on deck for concession stands! Please understand that concession stand sales are our biggest money maker for the year. Our fair share fees remain low due to that income. If we don’t have enough concession stand workers, then we must forfeit the stand and give it to another Humble ISD High School, who is more than happy to make the extra income. It’s a big deal. For those who are maybe new to the program, working just at least one concession stand day is usually an expectation of our band parents . We will never ask very much of our band family, but to keep our operations going, we are calling on ALL help possible.
This week’s practice schedule is Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday 3:15 to 5:45. BUT NEXT WEEK’S PRACTICE SCHEDULE IS DIFFERENT. Because we have a Thursday football game next week, we will do our three practice days on Mon, Tues, and Wed.
Ohh, by the way… OUR FIRST FOOTBALL GAME IS NEXT WEEK! And it’s a THURSDAY football game, against Dickinson High School on August 25th. It will be a home game at our own Turner stadium. An itinerary of the day will be sent to the students and parents on the BAND app and on the website. Student attire for the first game will be a summer uniform - the navy blue band shirt, black band shorts, and white marching shoes. The shoes should be arriving this week, and the round 3 orders on the webstore should be arriving this week as well.
GRADES! Make sure you are keeping up with your class work. In order for us to be competitive this year for band, we need every student to be eligible to play. We will be helping our students every single day, but we need our parent’s help as well with logging in to the classroom gradebook situation and helping your kiddos with their classwork.
And that’s all for this week! Let’s have an AMAZING week together! CHAMPIONSHIP MINDSET!
