10/26- Possibly Area D Marching Contest (if we get a 1)

There is a strong possibility that we will be adding the area contest on the 26th. There is also a decision to be made on an extra contest onNovember 2nd.  I will confirm by tomorrow.

This is a very important time so please communicate with conflicts or issues. I want to be flexible, but also honest about the importance of everyone attending rehearsals. We must take care of our bodies and keep focused on our goals as a program.

Finally, I am reminding you of the impending FRIDAY DEADLINE (10/4) for grades to be submitted for the 6 weeks report card. IF ANY CHILD DOES NOT PASS WITH A 70% OR BETTER, THEY WILL BE ACADEMICALLY INELIGIBLE. They will not be able to perform with the band at any event until November. Please be aware of your grades and talk to your teachers!!!! Academics is #1!

Thanks and have a great evening!
