Greetings Eagle Family! This weekly update will be super short and sweet, because I present to you.... The Itinerary of Itineraries!
It is another super fun-filled week of band goodness, with football playoffs, TMEA region band auditions, and more. You will need to download this itinerary above and have it ready for the whole entire week.
This week, we have:
I go into a lot of very specific detail on every little thing that's happening in the itinerary, so please refer back to it often. There is a whole lot happening this week, and I wanted it to be as concise and easily understood as possible. Make sure to stay tuned to the BAND app often, as I will be constantly posting updates on how things are going this week and if there's any fluctuations to the schedule that might happen.
A lot of band students have been working very hard all year long to prepare for TMEA Region Band auditions, and we wish them the very best of luck this week! On top of that, we also have a Friday night Football Playoff game, as the AHS varsity football team has advanced to the next round of playoffs.
One big note I want to make on here is this: As of this day, no band student will be allowed to leave campus before departure time of any events. The expectation is that you stay on campus. The Boosters provide you playoff game meals free of charge, so please take advantage of it. This is for YOUR safety - there is way too much that can possibly go wrong when you are not here with us, and we want you and your parents to be guaranteed of your safety. Therefore, there will be no Google Form asking about meals - the expectation is that you will be here and you'll have the meal that the Boosters provide. I will ask the Boosters to mark off who had one on the list and who didn't for accountability purposes. I take the student safety thing very seriously.
That's all I got for now. I'll have more later, but get the itinerary and have it close to you this week! Good luck everyone this week, and I'll see you on the other side!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We hope that you have an amazing break this week. Here is your update for the week of November 21st.
There is no school this week and no rehearsal, but there are a few things coming up:
FRIDAY FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS: AHS vs. Ridge Point, located at the Cypress Berry Center. Friday November 25th - 7 pm kickoff. An itinerary will go out soon.
I'd like to discuss next week though, because there is a lot going on. Next week is super busy though! The next week dates are:
A lot more information will be going out next week. In the meantime, we hope that you all enjoy your time with your families this Thanksgiving. Have a great restful week, and we will see you at the playoff game Friday!

Here are a few big Disney notes to prepare yourself for:
**Veterans Day Performance is THURSDAY, not Friday.
VETERANS DAY **THURSDAY**: The HS Wind Ensemble (varsity band) will be playing at the Veterans Day memorial service.

Greetings Eagle Family! It’s time for this week’s update for November 7, 2022. We’ve got everything you need to know about this week right here.
FRIDAY FOOTBALL GAME: The football team has advanced to playoff rounds. We will play Deer Park High School on Friday November 11. It is an AWAY game at Abshire Stadium on the Deer Park High School South campus. The address is located in the itinerary on the main band website - www.atascocitaband.com
THURSDAY REHEARSAL 3:15 to 6:00: So that we can prepare for a new show for the game. We have a lot of new stand tunes we want to hand out to everyone and play through, And we also want to make our drill on the field and practice the new show that we will do for Friday. Therefore, we do need the full time on Thursday. We can do everything we need to do with just one rehearsal this week, so Monday Tues and Weds, there are no after school rehearsals those days.
TUESDAY STUDENT HOLIDAY: Tuesday, students are off from school. Staff will still be here for a workday.
There is no Booster meeting this week or the next week.
TMEA REGION ORCHESTRA: For the kiddos who advanced and are going:
Our first DISNEY TRIP MEETING is November 28th Monday in the HS CAFETERIA. We will also hold a General Band Parent Booster Meeting at that time to go over important information pertaining to the program. All band students and parents traveling on the trip are required to be here for this meeting - it is a non-negotiable if you are traveling. Important documentation pertaining to the trip and required forms will be provided on that day.
Here are the upcoming calendar dates left on our event list:
