The students have done an amazing job getting started with nine to nines last week. The spirit and drive the student are exhibiting is nothing short of extrodinary.
This week we have practices from 7:00AM - 12:00PM. The last hour (11:00am-Noon) will be a flexible time and some students may finish early depending on how soon they play off the marching show music. Summer band schedule is still available on the school website at
We have a few events coming up in the next few weeks.
Friday August 6th: Students will need to wear clothing that they can get wet in to rehearsal. Expect them to be released at 11:30AM that day, and that they will want to have a towel or a change of clothes.
Saturday August 7th - Meet the Mavs: Attire - Maverick colors - Red and Black
This year the band has been invited to participate in Meet the Mavs at the stadium. Students will need to arrive at the stadium at 5:15PM with instruments. At 6:00PM they will introduce our band members and they will walk the field. After this they will play some stand tunes in the stands while the football team runs some plays. This should be fun and I would expect the students to be done between 7:30PM and 8:00PM. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Monday August 9th - HS Convocation
The band traditionally performs at the first teacher meeting (Convocation) each fall. This normally falls during a morning rehearsal and is a very brief performance (school song, fight song, Star-Spangled Banner). This last week the time was changed to 2:00PM. We would still like the students to perform at this event. We will need students to meet at the band hall at 1:30PM and should be finished performing at 2:30PM.
Wednesday August 11th - Band Swim Party
We are planning a band swim party at solid rock after rehearsal on the 11th of August. We will provide transportation to students after rehearsal ends (at 11:00am this day) and the party will take place from 12:00PM - 2:00PM. Band Boosters will be providing a hotdog lunch and Solid Rock Camp will provide lifeguards for the event. Students can be picked up at solid rock or they can pick up students at the band hall at 2:30PM.
