Announcements 12/5/11

I thought the students performed very well at the Christmas parade. Everyone was complimentary of how they sounded, and I am proud of how professionally they behaved. When there was a lot of down time, they did not get out of hand, and in the rush of getting out on the street and starting the parade, they were ready to go. They continue to grow as performers!
1) We have Afterschool rehearsal from 3:15 - 5:00 this Thursday, Dec. 8 for the Concert.
2) The Christmas Concert will be next Monday, Dec. 12 at 7:00 pm. Students will need to report to the Cafetorium stage at 6:15. Concert attire is dressy - khaki pants with collared shirts (ties are not required), please no tennis shoes. If the girls wear dresses, make sure they are conservatively cut and go past the knees when they are seated.
3) We will have an end of the marching season party immediately after the concert. Percussion and Guard are asked to bring drinks, and band members are asked to bring finger foods. Everyone is invited to stay for this fun time to hang out and reflect one last time before we start the new year.
4) The Breakfast with Santa fundraiser is this Saturday from 8:30 to 10:30 am. Students are asked to be there by 8:00 to help serve, clean, and be Santa's helpers. Also, Percussion and Guard members are asked to bring candy canes and the Band is asked to bring $2 by Thursday so that we can go out and buy the Pancake mix and Sausage.
5) We still need a few more cans for the Band Christmas Tree. We will be participating in the Beta Club Canned Food Creation competition, and afterwards the cans will be given to a good cause.
