Greetings everyone, and welcome back! We are so excited for everyone’s first day back of school! It’s an exciting time, and we hope that everyone has had an awesome restful break.
We have already had almost four total weeks of camps and students back for band, so for us, it feels like we’ve already been in school with you guys! Therefore, this week’s update will contain some of the items that we need to go over with students and parents so that we are all on the same page. Please read carefully each one, as most of the information will pertain to you:
Daily Rehearsal: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:45 to 5:30.
First Football Game: August 25th vs. Dickinson High School, away game
Band Fees: Only 99 students of our 200 member group have paid their annual dues. There are 4 days left on the web store. This is not an optional purchase - this is a required due for the program. Students will not be able to participate fully until the dues are paid in full. If you are experiencing a financial hardship or need to request partial payments, please contact Mr. Best at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a payment plan so that you can participate. If you are ready to make a payment, go to https://stores.inksoft.com/atascocitahsband/shop/home and pay for your annual dues (fair share fees) there.
Students with completely unpaid fair share fees before August 25 (first football game) will not be allowed to perform at the first game. Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.
Band Shoes: There are about 40 students who DID NOT purchase the required black shoes for the marching season. Without them, you will not be allowed on the field. You have 4 days left.
We are going to put a pause here for now. Just make sure to familiarize yourself with www.atascocitaband.com website and get to know all of the information pertaining to our program. We are going to have an AWESOME year of Atascocita High School Military Marching Band!
