I am sending this email with a schedule for the rest of this week, and next week's sectional/full rehearsal schedule. For the rest of this week, there will be no practice this evening, and our next event will be Friday, 9/25/2020, at 3:45. I need everyone to meet me in the parking lot by the new band room at 3:45 wearing your band shirts, and whatever you want for bottoms and shoes. We will then proceed to line up for the football team as they enter the bus to take on Chardon. I would encourage all parents to come and cheer the kids on. Let's bring some spirit to the school.
As for next week, here is the schedule:
Monday - 9/28/2020 - NO SECTIONALS DUE TO YOM KIPPUR
Tuesday - 9/29/2020 - All Trumpets/Mello's/Trombone/Baritone/Tuba - Sectional from 4:00 - 5:30 pm

Please understand I will be monitoring the weather each and every day, and by 2:45 you will know if a sectional is cancelled. Also, please continue to wear masks, and face shields. Always social distance, and as soon as I know about a playoff game I will be in touch. Please try to get as much of this information in your calendars as possible. A reminder that all senior surveys are due back to me by tomorrow. If you need another form, please let me know.
As always, I appreciate all you are doing, and I thank you for continuing to make music education a priority in your kids’ lives. Have a great rest of your day, and continue to EMBRACE THE CHALLENGE. Yes, to those who asked, there are more motivational videos and rocky clips coming. ROCK ON WILDCATS!!
