Hello Everyone,

Hopefully everything went well on the first half day of school. As we start the full day tomorrow, here are some things to remember:
1) We will not go outside every day during class, but you need to be ready to go outside any day. You need to have a change of clothes and whatever else you might need to go outside during class. During Afterschool rehearsals, we will be outside every time.
2) Don't forget that having instruments, music, and a pencil during class is part of the grade - don't leave them at home! Also, After school rehearsals, Football Games and Competitions account for nearly half the grade.
3) The first playing test will be next Tuesday - Dies Irae memorized. For Guard, I will expect to see the routine for a grade.

Remember our first Afterschool Rehearsal is this Thursday from 3:15 to 5:15. I am asking for the Front Ensemble members to stay for a while after that to have a little fun while they paint the trailers that we will use to transport the equipment to the football and rehearsal fields.

Remember Next Tuesday, August 16 is a big day - the big New York Trip meeting in the SGC Cafetorium at 6 pm. A representative from Thomas Tours will be there to answer any questions you may have. You are not committing to the trip, this is simply a question and answer time. I will also give news of a at least 3 fundraisers that we will be doing over the next couple of months to help you raise money for this trip.

Finally, next Friday, August 19 is the first Football game here at SGC. A detailed itinerary will be issued next Monday.
