Greetings Atascocita Band Familia! Better late than never, I always say! This week was jam packed with things happening, in terms of eligibility, rehearsals, sectionals, recruiting events, group photos, and all the things. Now that we are already on Wednesday, here is your update on all of the things that are happening currently and the things that are about to happen.
SIDE BY SIDE (varsity only): The Varsity Band has side by side middle school performances this week. Due to the weather, we had to reschedule the Timberwood Middle School event to Monday February 13th. The next event is as follows:
DISNEY TRIP: OMG IT’S NEXT WEEK! We are getting super close to departure. We will have lots more updates coming out soon before it gets to be that time. Here are a few things that you should know:
SOLO AND ENSEMBLE: Times have been posted on the whiteboard in the band hall. Students need to take a look at the schedule to see what time they play.
Our official contest days are Friday and Saturday February 17th and 18th.
ELIGIBILITY: Progress reports are going out soon. If your child is passing all of their classes this week, they will have regained their eligibility if they had lost it previously. If your child is failing a class on the progress report coming up and they passed everything on the report card, nothing will happen since a progress report is a gain-only.
Calendar Additions: We have some dates to add to the calendar!
More information to come on these events soon.
TMEA All State: When we return from Disney, the directors will be out beginning that Wednesday at the Texas Music Educators Association clinic and convention for professional staff development. This year’s AHS TMEA All-State Musician will be performing in San Antonio at the clinic and convention. The TMEA All-State Concerts are Saturday, February 11, 2023, in the Henry B. González Convention Center in San Antonio (900 E. Market Street).
If you are traveling to San Antonio for the All-State Concerts to support this year’s All-State musician, you will want to consider heavy traffic, parking, shuttle wait time/walk time, and convention center navigation time when you plan your travel. You will need to arrive very early. Parking & Shuttle Information
