Hello there eagle family! This is the week of October the 17th, and for the week after UIL, we do have a couple of things to go over.
UIL Region Marching Contest Results: Speaking of which, The Atascocita High School Military Marching Band travelled to their UIL regional marching contest last Saturday.
There, they earned a Division 1 rating at UIL Regional Marching Contest and have advanced to UIL Area Open Class playoff marching competition for a chance to compete at open class state contest.
The AHS band has earned their 15th Division 1 in their school's history, and they earned 1 ratings from all three judges. This is the highest accomplishment a marching band can earn at the region level. All three judges unanimously circled the plusses+ on the rubric for music, visual, and content.
The students' hard work has paid off, and the directors could not be any more happier and more proud of our students. Our students showed up, went all in, and the left it all on the field with no regrets. Thats the #championshipmindset - show up, all in, no regrets.
Way to go band family!
Rehearsals This Week: As for this week's rehearsal schedule, the students have been given Monday off. We will reconnect on Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday with regularly planned scheduled rehearsals starting at 3:45. These next two weeks will be dedicated to perfecting and cleaning what we have in preparation for UIL Area marching contest.
Friday Football: This coming Friday is an away football game against C.E King High School. And itinerary of the schedule will be going out soon. Just look for it to be similar to a Turner stadium game, since the CE King Sheldon stadium is pretty close to our high school.
This Saturday we have no events for the band.
TMEA Region Orchestra Auditions: Sign up deadline is this Monday at 11:59PM. That contest is going to be on Monday October 31st. And more information will follow soon as the time draws closer.
Area Marching Contest: The band has advanced to UIL Area marching band contest, which is held on October 29th Saturday. We know that it will be a morning performance, so once we have more information and all bands in all regions in our area have received their ratings, we will send out an itinerary of the day. This day will be the whole day, so please have planned to block off the entire day for our performances.
That’s all for this week! Congratulations to all of our very hard-working high school band members, and we will see you on the next one!
