This is your weekly MUSIC DEPARTMENT update!

Hello Folks!


IT’S A GAME WEEK! This home game is vs. Paxon HS. Call time is 4:30pm at the High School. Please come dressed in your band shirt and jeans. We will be marching Movement 1 and 2 of our marching show. 🇺🇸

For Tuesday rehearsal, we will be working on putting down movement 3 and a little more polish of 1 and 2. For Thursday, we will be further polishing Movement 1 and 2. We’re not far from having the entire show on the field with music!! Yay! 😃😃😃


Regarding the Fair Concession Booth—I’m so pleased with the work that has been put in so far, and I want to take a second to express my sincere appreciation for everyone’s time and effort! We’ve made nearly $2,000 so far, which is over half our goal! We just need some more sign-ups for the fair concessions stand. We’re very close to having everything we need filled so keep going! I recommended that if everyone signed up for 2 shifts, we’d be covered. We especially need help on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday! Please take a look and see what you can do!


Regarding NFHB—Audition materials are out! They can be found in my door. They can also be found HERE. Chair Placements on NFHB Materials will begin on October 11th.


Regarding Solo and Ensemble—It’s that time to begin thinking about Solo and Ensemble once more!! I have attached information below about Solo and Ensemble. We will also discuss this in class.

Things to Note 🎵:

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE FAIR


We need parent and student volunteers to work our fair concession stand. Parents we especially are asking for your support because we can only have two students in the booth at a time, and we will get really short staffed on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday because we will not have student availability due to rehearsals and the football game. If you are able to spare a few hours, on a day, it really helps to take the work off of everyone else.


There are slots set up for 6 people per job, but the job can be done relatively comfortably with 4 people in the booth on slower days (weekdays). We cannot have any more than 6 people in the booth at a time per the fair guidelines. Students may not operate the fryer or the grill.


The money made from this fundraiser goes to pay off our Marching Show (an excess of $3000 for Music and Drill). If we want to continue to have nice productions, we need support for our County Fair Concession Stand.


You can sign up to help HERE: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0e4aa4ab2fa5fe3-band



Parent Volunteers/ Chaperones

Chaperone sign-ups are available on Cut Time! You can log in to cut time using your student’s account or you can create an account and link it to your student! Volunteers are how we keep this program running so please make time to help us out where possible!  Remember that to volunteer in any event that is going to have you around students for an extended amount of time, you must complete and turn in a volunteer form per the Baker County School District.
