Good morning Eagle family! This is the week of October 31st. Happy Halloween! There’s no video update this week - my kid is out sick, so I am here at home taking care of him. Make sure to wash your hands super regularly, because a stomach bug is going around everywhere. Which reminds me - don’t share water jugs. That’s pretty nasty.
Okay, let’s go over the items for this week now!
CONTEST RECAP: As I mentioned in my previous BAND app announcement, The Atascocita Military Marching Band should be super proud of their performance at UIL Area Marching Contest this year. The kids worked super hard this season, and the directors couldn’t be any more proud of our kids and their accomplishments this year.
REDUCED REHEARSAL SCHEDULE: The rehearsal schedule has now reduced significantly. Starting this week, we will only practice on Thursdays, and it will be at 3:15 and will only be to practice with the dance team for 15 minutes. We will have some Thursdays when we will need a little additional time to learn a new "fun" show for the playoff games.
NEXT UP: So what’s next for the AHS Band? There’s TMEA Region Orchestra auditions (happening today), there’s TMEA All-Region Band auditions, TMEA Freshman band auditions, winter concert, football playoff games, pep rallies, and much much more. As these next few weeks go on, we will have more information coming out.
FRIDAY PEP RALLY! For this coming Friday, make sure to have your pep rally uniform:
Remember - the pep rally can be chaotic around us. The band represents 100% pride in our self-discipline, so please do not add more to the chaos around you - especially since the senior class is close to us. The band directors would like to remind the band students what our job is - to play our instruments as musical ambassadors of school spirit.
FRIDAY FOOTBALL GAME: It’s at Turner stadium against Summer Creek. The itinerary is going to be identical to every other home game we’ve had so far, but I’ll send out another one with the updated date/location/football team.
For the TMEA Region Orchestra Auditions happening today, the itinerary was posted on the BAND app. If you are auditioning, make sure that you are at the band hall right after school. A charter bus will be sending us there, and HISD yellow busses will be taking us back. Make sure that you bring money for the concession stands to eat food/dinner during the day while we are there.
That’s all we have for this week.
