Greetings Eagle family! We hope that everyone had a really awesome weekend, and here is your weekly update for February 20!
UIL Solo and Ensemble contest: AHS band earned a total of 113 division one medals on Friday and Saturday. That's super amazing, and we are very proud of everyone who participated.
Congratulations to the following students who have qualified for TSSEC (Texas State Solo and Ensemble contest):
The judges also selected students who were memorable to them and were awarded Outstanding Performer:
ELIGIBILITY: This week is GAIN ONLY, meaning you can’t lose it. If you have your eligibility, and you get your progress report and you are failing a class, you will not lose your eligibility. However, if you had not had your eligibility previously and you are passing all classes, then you will regain your eligibility.
The LOSS period for eligibility is after spring break, so you have three weeks left to get grade life in order so that you do not lose your eligibility when the time comes.
MONDAY Booster Meeting: the booster board will meet at 6:15 to discuss new items. The general parent meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. and will contain new items pertaining to the band program. All band booster parents are invited to attend at the high school band hall at 7pm after the board has met.
TUESDAY full Orchestra pre-UIL contest: Students participating in the full Orchestra with the strings program will perform in their first ever pre-UIL concert and sight reading event this coming Tuesday. The times of this event are below:
WEDNESDAY Full Orchestra: practice resumes, regular time 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Thursday is a late arrival day.
FRIDAY PICTURE DAY: This Friday is Atascocita military band picture day! Texas group photo is the company that will be coming out during our class time taking individual photos of our band students for parents and family members to purchase. We will also be creating a group composite photo with all band students. Your students have been sent home with an order form from Texas group photo, and you can click the link below to access the form.
If you are interested in purchasing photos, you will need to bring this order form along with cash or check made out to Texas Group Photo in an envelope with the student's name on it on Friday the day of pictures. This is a one shot deal, so if you are absent from school, you will be missed for the composite photo all together.. It will be important to come by either first through 7th period anytime to get your picture taken in your uniform.
